Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma
Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma is a luxurious lodge nestled on a dramatic bend of the Zambezi River within the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park. The lodge, named in honour of Dr. David Livingstone's loyal companions Sussi and Chuma, is situated in one of the most picturesque and serene parts of the Zambezi, surrounded by enchanting Jackalberry trees and majestic Phoenix palms. This idyllic setting provides guests with glorious views and an exclusive and an unparalleled safari experience, just twelve kilometres upstream from the iconic Victoria Falls.
The lodge comprises twelve unique Sussi tree house accommodations, all connected by charming wooden walkways. Each elevated treehouse is carefully designed to blend harmoniously with the landscape, ensuring a seamless integration with nature offset by contemporary indulgences. The main lodge area offers a variety of amenities and communal spaces for guests to enjoy, including a cosy lounge, dining area, bar and a striking swimming pool. These spots are ideal for guests to unwind and socialise with fellow travellers while drinking in the panoramic views of the river and getting lost in the sounds of the bush.
A wide array of exciting activities are on offer, including game drives, bush walks and sundowner cruises on the Zambezi River. The close proximity to Victoria Falls allows guests to explore this natural wonder, either by helicopter or guided tour, ensuring a truly unforgettable Zambian experience.
