On arrival you will be met and transferred to the Sanctuary Sussi and Chuma. Built on a dramatic bend of the Zambezi River in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, the lodge is a short drive, seven miles upstream, from the world-famous Victoria Falls. This 5-star luxury lodge is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the Zambezi providing unrivalled 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. The elegant shaded deck offers fantastic bird's eye views across the river.

At Sussi and Chuma the highly trained safari guides 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 a rare sighting of the wild dog that on occasion pass through the park.

During your stay at Sussi and Chuma you will enjoy a Bicycle tour of Nakatindi Village.

Day 2 - Livingstone (Victoria Falls)

The day is at leisure to enjoy some of the many activities on offer. Depending on water levels, the Falls make a constant roar and are accompanied by a cloud of spray where the mile wide Upper Zambezi falls 300 feet into the Lower Zambezi.

The lodge also offers you the opportunity to enjoy a two hour canoeing excursion on the Zambezi River. The canoeing trip can either be done in the morning or afternoon; the activity will start from the lodge and can be combined with either a game drive or a boat cruise.

There can be few more thrilling ways to experience and understand African wildlife, the bush and ecosystem as a whole than by being on foot on a walking safari.

Offering a completely different perspective to the conventional view one gets from a safari vehicle. On this activity you are accompanied by their highly trained professional walking guides, Luckson and Elijah, who have a combined walking safari experience of more than 20 years.

Sunset Cruise in Zambia

A Zambezi River cruise is a great way to spend a few hours before drifting back to the lodge, a warm shower and delicious dinner. Sanctuary's boats are specially designed, and the guide will take the boat through a series of grade 2 rapids before finding a spot to beach for a break and a sunset cocktail. The combination of Zambezi spray on your face and sipping on a cocktail while watching the sunset over the majestic Zambezi River is truly a once in a lifetime experience.

The trip was amazing!! Everything at all of the Sanctuary properties were above expectations and we were so well looked after.

The excursions were great...we saw tons of wildlife...and the staff was exceptional. Each property has its own special thing about it that made it stand out from the others.
