After 3 days of volunteering with the women entrepreneurs at the Victoria Falls Women’s Curio Market (more on that later this week), I decided to treat myself to a quick overnight stay at the Royal Chundu Zambezi River Lodge, upriver from the Falls. This five-star Relais & Chateaux property is the perfect place to chill out after the hard work of an African safari, or in my case, working long days together with local Zimbabwean entrepreneurs.


The Royal Chundu Lodge has 10 river-front suites in the main part of the lodge, plus an additional 4 over-the-top villa suites on a nearby private island. The standard deluxe suite where I stayed Monday night was simply perfect. And the island villas are ideal for honeymooners or anyone desiring a truly private and luxurious experience. The food is amazing and the highlights or my dining were the 7-course Zambian (finally some local food) and then breakfast this morning.

Next time you’re at Vic Falls, or if it’s your first visit, stay about 40 minutes up the road at Royal Chundu. I loved it and know you will, too!
