Situated along the banks of the Zambezi River, this “tree-house” camp amid the giant ebony trees offers an especially unique Zambian safari experience within Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park.
Sussi & Chuma is comprised of twelve tree houses which are built into the canopy of ebony trees and connected by wooden walkways to the common area lodge. The air-conditioned rooms come with large beds draped with mosquito nets. The en suite bathrooms include a deep bath perfect for soaking in and a shower. A private deck is the ideal place to relax and take in the stunning views. For families or larger groups, there are two additional larger guest houses, with two full bedrooms, private chef, and house staff as well as a private deck with a plunge pool.
Named in honor of David Livingstone’s companions who carried his body back to England after he died in Zambia, Sussi & Chuma is a mere stone’s throw from the breathtaking Victoria Falls. The camp is located on a quiet bend in the river in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. The Park’s name means the smoke which thunders, the Kololo name given to world-famous Victoria Falls. The Park covers twenty-five square miles from the Songwe Gorge below the falls in a north-west arc along about the Zambian river bank. The wildlife park includes tall riverine forest with palm trees, miombo woodland and grassland with plenty of birds, and animals including Angolan giraffe, Grant’s zebra, warthog, sable, eland, Cape buffalo, impala, and other antelope. There are ten rhinos living in the park. Hippos and Nile crocodiles frequent the mighty Zambezi River below the Falls.
