Lodge location: In the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park on the banks of the Zambezi River, only 12km from Victoria Falls

Due to the rising water levels of the Zambezi River in Livingstone Sanctaury Retreats has on a temporary basis relocated the Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma treatment room to one of the Chuma houses where they will continue to offer guests relaxing treatments. Should the levels of the river continue to rise there might also be a need to close the main pool facility. All guests will also be briefed on arrival at Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma.
Please note the lodge is way above the flood levels and all the usual activities are still on offer.
We will keep you updated on any further developments, so keep on watching this blog.




During the Zambezi River’s annual flood season, February to May, the Victoria Falls is a jaw-dropping sight. Columns of spray can be seen up to 10 miles away as 550 million cubic metres of water plummet over the 1080 meter wide edge every 60 seconds, into a gorge over 100 meters below. One of the best ways of seeing the spectacular World Heritage site is from above. Guest staying at Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma have the option of seeing the falls from a helicopter or micro light (at an additional cost).
