Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma Lodge is just 12km away from the falls, offering fantastic sunset views over the river. Accommodation is in rustic tree house styled chalets which are tucked into the giant ebony trees, connected by wooden walkways. There are many nooks at the lodge, providing lots of space for guests to seek some silence and solitude, therefore, even when it’s full you garner a sense of wilderness! In addition to the normal falls activities, there is a huge range of activities at Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma, including canoeing along the river, sundowner cruise and drives in the park. It is the perfect place to stay if you want to relax as well as embrace everything the falls and the Zambezi River has to offer.
“The whole place is modern yet fits perfectly into the bush, the food and staff are excellent and you feel as if you could be in the Maldives not Livingstone! The safari activities were top notch it is a great combination with their other safari properties!”

Just returned from 3 wonderful days at this magnificent place. Beautiful sunsets, river cruises, canoeing, swimming in pool overlooking the river and walking with rhinos – a magnificent experience – and of course the Vic Falls just a few kms away. We had the best guide on our trip – Shadrack – who took us on every excursion and looked after us. The staff are welcoming
and friendly, the rooms are built on treetops, expansive and had a balcony overlooking the river.
Had the best time. We canoed, did a boat trip, lazed by the pool, drank delicious
cocktails, swam, canoed a bit more, ate fantastic food, and of course, saw the incredible Victoria Falls.
Loved every part. Service was superb, lunch on the grass by Chuma house was special, the sunsets were incredible and our guides were BRILLIANT.
Like the other Sanctuary properties we have stayed at, Sussi & Chuma is very well run and attractively appointed. You will probably come to see Vic Falls. The Falls were fun but the high point of Sussi & Chuma is its location at the edge of the Zambezi. Two exceptional experiences: he trip to the head waters of the falls in one of the lodge’s small boats. We saw hippos, giraffes, and many birds. Particular fun was running the rapids at sunset heading back to the lodge.
