Victoria Falls - Zambia


Sussi & Chuma Location Map

Just a short drive away from the world famous Victoria Falls, Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma is built on a dramatic bend in the Zambezi, right on the edge of the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park.

A walking tour of The Falls is a must for anyone staying here. First described to Europe by explorer David Livingstone and known locally as the Mosi-oa-Tunya, or “the Smoke that Thunders”, the Falls make a constant roar and are accompanied by a cloud of brilliant spray where the mile wide Upper Zambezi falls 300 feet into the Lower Zambezi. Rainbows constantly form and collapse in the tropical sunlight over the waterfall.

Other activities include game drives in custom-built 4x4 safari vehicles into the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. The Park is home to elephant, impala, giraffe, buffalo, hippo, crocodile, zebra in large numbers and an exciting array of birds. It even has white rhino – the only place in Zambia where they can be seen. Guests may also be lucky enough to see a rare sighting of the wild dog that on occasion pass through the Park.

In addition, there can be few more thrilling ways to experience and understand African wildlife and the bush as a whole than by being on foot on a walking safari. The walking safaris are conducted at a leisurely pace and take about two hours. Morning walks depart at around 06:30 and include a break with tea, coffee and snacks. The afternoon walk start at around 16:00 and finish at a special sundowner spot where guests will be served drinks and canapés while enjoying the magnificent sunset.

Guests can also relax on a Zambezi River sundowner cruise - a truly great way to spend a couple of hours. Sipping on a cocktail while watching the sunset over the majestic Zambezi River is truly a once in a lifetime experience.

Local village visits can also be arranged, as can fishing trips, and canoe excursions.

Inbetween all the activities, the inviting swimming pool is perfect for just relaxing around, or you can book a spa treatment, or just enjoy a quiet drink in the elevated bar overlooking the Zambezi.

The accommodation consists of 12 tree houses connected by stilted wooden walkways. Each tree house enjoys superb views over the river. In addition, there are 2 private houses available, each with 2 bedrooms, their own dining areas and decks with plunge pools, and their own chef and house staff.
