The Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park is home to the exclusive Sanctuary Sussi and Chuma, a boutique lodge situated 12km from the Victoria Falls on the banks one of the most beautiful sections of the Zambezi River. Tucked away amongst the trees, twelve luxury Sussi tree houses that are connected by wooden walkways offer guests a birds-eye view of the African bush and wildlife that surround them. The air-conditioned rooms each have their own private deck and offer guests a place to soak up the ambience and natural beauty of Africa or enjoy a sundowner at the end of the day.
Two spacious two-bedroomed private Chuma houses are perfect for visitors who are travelling with children – their outdoor dining and outdoor shower areas adding a novel African touch. Each has it’s own private plunge pool and better yet, comes with a dedicated private chef.
Named after Livingstone’s faithful friends, the main lodge consists of a lounge, two open air dining areas, a swimming pool, and an elevated bar and wine cellar. A full English breakfast will tide you over for the day but save space for lunch and dinner, which are leisurely, delicious affairs incorporating both “western” and African dishes.
If you’d like to work up an appetite, there are plenty of activities on offer. Game drives give visitors the chance to view elephant, giraffe, zebra and antelope, and hippo sightings on the sundowner cruises are almost a given.
A walking tour of the Victoria Falls is a must and the lodge prides itself on the walking safari’s they offer. Guests are in the capable hands of experienced guides who are able to impart a wealth of knowledge about the fauna and flora of the African bush. And if the day’s activities have worn you out, we recommend a relaxing treatment at the Spa that overlooks the river.
The lodge is noted for its friendly, superb service where staff are happy to go the extra mile and get especially enthused if they know you’re there to celebrate a specific event. The peaceful serenity and outstanding hospitality will undoubtedly make you want to return.
