Sussi Lodge and Chuma House in Zambia
Sussi Lodge and Chuma House is an enchanting riverbank hideaway just 10 minutes upstream from the Victoria Falls – a perfect beginning or finale to your Zambian wildlife safari. Named after David Livingstone’s faithful friends who carried his body from the interior of Zambia to the British Embassy in Dar-es-Salaam. The luxury tree houses have their own private verandah and a magnificent view overlooking the Zambezi River. Sussi Lodge features an airy dining room, a raised lounge and bar area, a curio shop, small library as well as a downstairs deck area and swimming pool that borders the rivers edge. Elephant, buffalo and rhino often pass below our walkways! Activities include a guided tour of the Falls, canoe trips, white water rafting, sunset cruises, cultural village trips, elephant safaris and much more.
The stunning main area of Sussi Lodge and Chuma House has an elevated bar, superb wine cellar, lounge and open air dining area, curio shop and swimming pool. Full English and continental breakfast is served and high tea is available on request. The elegant shaded deck offers fantastic bird’s eye views across the river. And last but not least, when all the excitement of the day has caught up, a revitalising spa treatment is the order of the day.
Twelve luxury tree houses are built into the canopy of majestic ebony trees lining the river bank. The air-conditioned rooms all with their own private viewing deck boast superb views over the white waters of the Zambezi. And if the fancy takes you, enjoy a private dinner on your deck, while the sounds of the bush provide enchanting background music.
The two private Chuma Houses are perfect for families with young children. Each house has two en suite bedrooms, a spacious lounge and dining area and private plunge pool. Each of the houses also come with their own private chef, house staff, guide and private vehicle for activities for the duration of their stay.
