Sussi and Chuma

Livingstone & Victoria Falls

Rating: Deluxe    

Sussi and Chuma overview

Sussi and Chuma is named after David Livingstone's companions and is made up of a gorgeous rustic luxury lodge (Sussi) and two exclusive-use houses (Chuma) set on the dramatic Upper Zambezi River, near Livingstone.

Sussi Lodge consists of 12 luxury tree houses built into the tree lined bank of the Zambezi, all with private viewing decks among the branches. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms with shower and bath, air conditioning, overhead fans, mosquito nets, mini bar and hairdryer. Children aged 6 and over are welcome at Sussi.

The central lodge has a raised bar and lounge decking area and an open air dining space. There is a river-edge swimming pool, Africology spa and curio shop.

Chuma consists of two self-contained houses, each having 2 en-suite bedrooms (one double, one twin so ideal for families) and a living area with their own kitchen and private chef. Each house has it's own private guide and vehicle for activities. There is also a spacious lounge and dining room area plus outdoor deck and barbeque area with private plunge pool. Children of all ages are welcome at Chuma.

The 'wet' season here is normally December to March with the main thick spray on the falls shortly after during April - May. The 'dry' season runs from May to November with June to August being coolest. October - December the rock formations at the falls are really interesting as the water slows down.

Activities here include game viewing in Mosi-oa-Tunya park where you can see elephants, giraffe, buffalo and rhino amongst other species. Sunset and morning boat cruises, fishing and visits to various local attractions can also be arranged. The lodge also offers a guided visit to Victoria Falls. Please note the heritage entry fee (currently $20 per person) needs to be paid direct to the lodge for this visit.

Mr. Dale Squire (05/05/2017)

"We loved all the activities, I loved the fishing trip!"

Jenny Chantler
"A different experience with perhaps less sense of adventure, but the setting and style of the camp is beautiful. Visiting Victoria Falls and getting so close to a White Rhino was a brilliant way to spend a birthday, particularly when supper ended with the unexpected singing and dancing accompaniment to an enormous chocolate cake! I really enjoyed visiting the local village and school as well."
