Sanctuary Lodges & Camps have acquired the following camps and lodges in Zambia:

Sussi & Chuma on the banks of the Zambezi River in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park above the world-famous Victoria Falls
Lechwe Plains Tented Camp in the Lochinvar National Park north of Lusaka
Kulefu Tented Camp situated on the banks of the Zambezi River in the Lower Zambezi National Park
Puku Ridge Tented Camp in the South Luangwa National Park
Chichele Presidential Lodge in the South Luangwa National Park, the world-famous lodge which was originally built by President Kaunda

Sussi and Chuma is an enchanting riverbank hideaway just 10 minutes upstream of the Victoria Falls along the Zambezi river next to Zambia's Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park.

Sussi & Chuma, named after David Livingstone’s faithful friends (and who carried his body from the interior to the British embassy at Dar-es-Salaam), consists of an exclusive, upmarket lodge which takes full advantage of its lovely river-bank setting.

Resident wildlife, such as hippopotamus and elephant, is likely to wander through the Lodge grounds at any time, since in the National Park they have priority. A wide choice of activities adds to the attractions of this elegant, secluded retreat.

The river here is dotted with islands and rapids and the gentle rush of the water as it washes over the rocks gives a soothing background symphony. Sussi & Chuma is the ideal destination for those wishing to explore Victoria Falls and its surrounds. Because of its close proximity to the Mosi-Oa-Tunya Game Park and the most northerly population of White Rhino, it is also perfect for those with only a day or two to spare for a safari.

Accommodation            For images of Sussi & Chuma, click Sussi & Chuma Images
Guest accommodation consists of ten generously sized, luxury tree-houses, built into the living canopy of giant ebony trees lining the bank of the Zambezi River. Each unit has a private view of the river from its own deck among the branches.

Each house has folding doors which open completely to allow you to lie in your muslin swathed bed and gaze at the river or to catch the scarlet underwing of a Livingstone Lourie as it conveniently perches at eye level. The houses feature large baths and separate showers, deep cane chairs on the teak veranda, a cotton wrap draped across a white linen chair, scented candles by the bath, a cooling fan and a discreet fridge for those private sundowners.

Canopy-level walkways connect each treehouse to the main bar and lounge. This thatched structure is also elevated and features a spectacular raised bar/lounge deck with a perfect view of the river and the elephant's favorite swimming hole. Overhead fans, shady palms and deep armchairs accented with animal prints make it the ideal viewing platform. Just below is the illusory wet-lip pool, which appears to merge with the waters of the Zambezi and the belly laugh of the hippos.

• En-suite toilet, basin, shower & bath
