Five reasons to visit Chundu Island

Seolo Africa • 15 August 2019

International travellers spend a lot of time and money travelling to Victoria Falls, and it usually involves a multi country trip with the flights in and out of Victoria Falls being an expensive part of their travel costs.  Then they only spend 2 nights, 1 day in town, to view the falls and/or participate in extreme sports. 

1.  MAXIMISE THE TIME AND COST OF TRAVELLING TO VICTORIA FALLS BY EXTENDING YOUR VISIT TO INCLUDE CHUNDU ISLAND
One way to maximize the cost and time spent on flying into Victoria Falls is to consider an extension to Chundu Island – without having to purchase additional visas or flights.  Chundu Island provides complimentary collections and drop offs at Zambezi House just outside of town.

2. IT'S A UNIQUE ISLAND EXPERIENCE... THINK SEYCHELLES MEETS ZAMBEZI
Chundu Island is a destination on its own.  It is not just a place to overnight when visiting the Victoria Falls.  A stunning 1.4km long island on the Zambezi River, with a white sandy beach during the low water season, it looks out onto the Zambezi National Park.  With incredible bird life, huge riverine trees and a variety of activities it appeals to the romantic, the adventurous and nature lovers as well as those who are just safari’d out and want to chill in a unique environment.  It’s the perfect foil to the noise and buzz of the Falls.

3. IT'S A GUARANTEED PLEASER COMBINING THE BEST OF ALL WORLDS - SAFARI, WATER ACTIVITIES AND A PLACE TO CHILL OUT
Ever felt safari’d out or that your planned holiday schedule is a bit too hectic?  Ever felt you could have done without the city/beach portion of the trip and rather focused more on the safaris?  We all know that everyone has unique interests and passions. Sometimes what suits one person didn’t satisfy their partner! Because Chundu Island offers a unique combination of experiences it’s not only spectacular, but also a safe bet.  With:
• game drives and bush walks for the safari-lover
• island and bird walks for the more cautious nature lover
• massages and swimming pool for those just looking to relax
• fishing and canoeing for the adventurous, and
• stunning sunset cruises and daybeds overlooking the Zambezi for the romantic – it's sure to please.

Don’t forget we’re also family friendly.  We offer special kids activities for the youngsters, and are able to accommodate children under the age of 6 by request.

4. IT'S JUST BIG ENOUGH FOR GROUPS, LARGE FAMILIES OR SMALL CORPORATES TO HAVE IT ALL TO THEMSELVES
With only 8 suites, two of which are family suites with children’s bedrooms, Chundu Island is the perfect size for family reunions, special events (birthdays, anniversaries and weddings), as well as for scheduled tour groups, corporate incentives and breakaways.  This is the ideal size for us to be able to tailor make the experience to suit your group, keeping it intimate and special.

5. LISTEN TO WHAT OTHERS SAY - BOOK FOR LONGER
It has for many years been a tradition to book only 2 nights in the Victoria Falls area, as it has been viewed as a quick stop to see the falls, maybe do a little white water rafting, and head off.  Chundu Island guests are regretting that they have only stayed 2 or 3 nights.  Take advantage of this inside information!
