Zambia is a country of diversity; not only in it’s landscape and wildlife, but also it’s people. Zambians are friendly, kind & welcoming to all her visit their beautiful country! With a wide variety of luxury lodges and so many varied activities to keep you busy, Zambia is such a wonderful country to include in your Southern Africa itinerary.

The most popular time to visit Zambia is during the cool and dry winter season which is between April & August.

The Victoria Falls are at their most impressive and fullest between March & July, however, they are still great to view in February & September.

Here are just a few property suggestions, however, Southey Travel can offer various options based on budget.


Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara

Royal Livingstone Hotel

Situated on the banks of the Zambezi River and just a few hundred meters above the Victoria Falls sits the grand old dame, the Royal Livingstone Hotel.

Evening cocktails are best enjoyed on the deck located on the banks of the river where you can not only hear the water cascading over the Victoria Falls but you can also see the magnificent spray. It’s called the ‘smoke that thunders’ or Mosi-oa-Tunya.

All of the rooms & suites have patios or balconies overlooking the ever moving waters of the Zambezi River and the sounds of river life are ever present.

Royal Chundu

Royal Chundu

Set on a private stretch of the Zambezi River in Zambia, Royal Chundu is indulgent is so many ways. The property has 2 different suites to offer guests – river lodge or island lodge. The choice is yours!

River Lodge is the larger of the 2 camps and offers 10 gorgeous river-front suites. Each suite opens onto a private deck with the most spectacular river views.

Island Lodge is far more private & exclusive with only 4 villas. This lodge is located on Katombora Island. This lodge is definitely more suited to the honeymoon client or anyone looking to just get away from it all!

Royal Chundu still offers all the ‘standard’ Victoria Falls tours including sunset cruises, canoeing, walking tours of the falls and much more!
