At Vic Falls, you will enjoy all sorts of things to do before heading out to the top-rated South Luangwa National Park for some safari time. Both properties we use are very family friendly, providing lots of children’s activities as well as a special kids’ menu!

Each property is owned and operated by Sanctuary Retreats, a big name in luxury lodges! While in the Victoria Falls region, you will stay at Sussi & Chuma. Named after friends of famous explorer Dr David Livingstone, this lodge has a dramatic setting on a bend of the Zambezi river! And when you are on safari in the South Luangwa, your base camp will be Chichele Presidential Lodge. Once a private retreat belonging to President Kenneth Kaunda, today this property provides sumptuous accommodation close to the national park.

On the first day of your family holiday, you will fly out to Livingstone and transfer by road to Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma. In keeping with the naming of this lodge after two friends of Dr Livingstone, this property has a very friendly feel! It is situated 12 kilometres upstream of Victoria Falls, within Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. This setting is away from the Falls crowds yet near enough for easy access to the spectacular waterfall. Communal spaces include a comfy lounge, dining area, bar, and swimming pool! You will stay in a Sussi Tree House – there are 12 of these in total, all raised on wooden decks among ebony trees and overlooking the riverbanks. The interiors are spacious and pleasantly furnished, featuring a well-appointed en-suite bathroom. Activities available for children from Sussi & Chuma comprise game drives in Mosi-oa-Tunya (for kids aged over 5 years), Falls tours, river cruises, and a trip out to the local school and village of Nakatindi. There is also plenty to keep the kids entertained at the lodge, while adults enjoy canoeing excursions, watersports, and walking safaris. At additional cost, you can fly over the Falls in a helicopter, visit the World Heritage Site of Livingstone Island, and even check out the Falls from the Zimbabwe side!

Board basis and activities:
Full-board accommodation, including all meals, a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, two activities daily, park fees, and a laundry service.
