This 5-star luxury lodge is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the Zambezi providing unrivaled views and exclusivity. The main lodge is built on two levels, with an elevated bar, superb wine cellar, lounge and open air dining area, curio shop and swimming pool.

Sussi and Chuma accommodations

The twelve luxury Sussi Tree Houses are built into the canopy of majestic ebony trees lining the riverbank. The air-conditioned rooms, all with their own private viewing deck, boast superb views over the white waters of the Zambezi.

At Sussi and Chuma the highly trained safari guides will take you on game drives in custom-built 4x4 safari vehicles to experience the land as it was when Livingstone first made his way across the ridge and witnessed the "smoke that thunders". The park has elephant, impala, giraffe, buffalo, hippo, crocodile, zebra in large numbers and an exciting array of birds. You may also be lucky enough to see rare wild dogs that, on occasion, pass through the park.

Cape Town

Enhance your African experience with a 3 or 4 night stay in Cape Town to allow sufficient time to discover all the city has to offer and to experience the diversity that is Africa.

Cape Town is the most popular tourist destination in South Africa due to its good climate, culture and scenic beauty. The city has several well-known natural features that attract tourists, most notably Table Mountain, for panoramic views of the city and Cape Point the dramatic headland at the end of the Cape Peninsula. Many tourists also drive along Chapman's Peak Drive, a scenic mountainous drive with views of the Atlantic Ocean and nearby mountains. A visit to Boulders Beach to see the adorable penguin colony is a favorite amongst visitors. The Cape Winelands offers wine estate tours and wine tastings, and scenic towns with their architectural heritage of Cape Dutch style buildings. The city has several notable cultural and heritage attractions. Robben Island is a poignant experience as visitors see where Nelson Mandela and other political prisoners were imprisoned.   Township tours of the Cape Flats and Khayelitsha provide insight into life in these vibrant communities. The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is one of the city's most popular shopping venues, with several hundred shops and the Two Oceans Aquarium.
