Activities at Sussi and Chuma Lodge
Game Drives at Sanctuary Sussi and Chuma Lodge
Sanctuary Sussi and Chuma is set on the edge of the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park.
Here the highly trained safari guides take guests on game drives in custom built 4x4 safari vehicles to experience the land as it was when Livingstone first made his way across the ridge and beheld the smoke that thunders.
The Park has elephant, impala, giraffe, buffalo, hippo, crocodile, zebra in large numbers and an exciting array of birds, including some South African specials like Peters Finfoot.
Guests may also be lucky enough to see a rare sighting of the wild dog that on occasion passes through the park.

Sanctuary Sussi and Chuma offer guests the opportunity to enjoy a two hour canoeing excursion on the Zambezi River.

Tours of the Victoria Falls
Just a short drive away from the world famous Victoria Falls, the lodge offers guests a walking tour of The Falls.
First described to Europe by explorer David Livingstone and known locally as Mosi-Oa-Tunya, or “Smoke that Thunders”, the falls make a constant roar and are accompanied by a cloud of brilliant spray where the mile wide Upper Zambezi falls 300ft into the Lower Zambezi.
Rainbows constantly form and collapse in the tropical sunlight over the waterfall.
The river is bordered by ebony groves and mopane forest.
Well known for its birdlife, with many fish eating raptors attracted to the rich pickings in the river.
Excluded in the rate is the Heritage Fee which is payable by guests directly at the lodge when doing a Tour of the Falls. 

Walking Safaris at Sussi and Chuma Lodge
There can be few more thrilling ways to experience and understand African wildlife, the bush and ecosystem as a whole than by being on foot on a walking safari.

Our two highly trained professional walking guides, Luckson and Elijah, have a combined walking safari experience of more than 20 years.
Their reverence and respect for the wild is highly contagious, making this a truly unforgettable and memorable experience as they share their in-depth bush knowledge of the local flora and fauna.
Guests will also be accompanied by an armed National Parks ranger.

The afternoon walk will commence at 4pm and finish at a special sundowner spot where guests will be served drinks and canapés while enjoying the magnificent sunset.

A Zambezi River cruise is a great way to spend a few hours before drifting back to the lodge, a warm shower and delicious dinner.
The boats are specially designed and the guide will take the boat through a series of grade 2 rapids before finding a spot to beach for a break and a sunset cocktail.
The combination of Zambezi spray on your face and delicious drink on the tongue makes for a memorable sunset cruise.
