Sussi and Chuma

Sanctuary Sussi and Chuma lodge 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, 12kms from Victoria Falls. The lodge is named after David Livingstone’s faithful friends Sussi and Chuma, who carried the explorer’s body from where he died back to Bagomoyo to hand it over to the British authorities.

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, hairdryer and Wi-Fi. 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 a spacious lounge and dining room plus outdoor deck and barbeque area with private plunge pool. Houses are equipped with air conditioning, safe, minibar, Wi-Fi, hair dryer and mosquito nets. 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 National Park where you can see elephants, giraffe, buffalo and rhino amongst other species. Game drives, walking safaris, guided tour of Victoria Falls (with the heritage entry fee currently US$20 per person to be paid locally), a sunset river cruise, canoeing, fishing and a visit to a local village and school are included in you stay.
