Offering ten luxurious tree houses, accommodation at Sussi and Chuma is a rare and exciting opportunity to experience the African bushveld from a slightly different angle. Connected to the Sussi & Chuma lodge by stilted wooden walkways, guests truly experience the sights, sounds and smells of the bushveld. All the suites are beautifully appointed and en-suite and features include air-conditioning, showers, baths and private views of the Zambezi – courtesy of the private deck at each tree house. Apart from the tree houses, there are also two private houses available, which are ideal for families or larger groups. These houses each have two bedrooms, their own dining areas as well as private plunge pools on their decks. The final flourish is that each of these exclusive units also has its own chef and house staff.
Located in the heart of the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, and with the nearby roar of the majestic Victoria Falls, the main section of the lodge sprawls over two levels and is nestled within giant ebony trees. What is more, the beautifully designed and decorated elevated bar and lounge area makes the most of its river views, and relaxation is guaranteed thanks to the numerous treatments at the intimate Safari Spa.
Sussi and Chuma offers countless opportunities for river- and land-based adventures, and tailormade daytrips and safaris ensure a riveting riverside stay. Guided cultural tours to traditional local villages, thrilling game drives and various activities around Victoria Falls abound – and as the lodge is set in the wilderness, guests would be delighted to spot the resident hippo and elephant frequenting the camp areas.
It is easy to relax and rejuvenate in this heavenly destination which is not only within the so-called “adrenalin capital of Africa”, but also features the kind of swimming pool and raised lounge where blissful hours – or whole days – can be whiled away.
