Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park is one of Zambia’s smallest parks, yet it provides a home to elephant, hippo, giraffe, buffalo, warthog, zebra, impala, vervet monkeys and baboon. The small park has a relaxed atmosphere due to the lack of predators, which makes ideal conditions for photo opportunities.

sussi and Chuma is 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 “the 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 300 feet 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 bird life, 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.
