Luxury safari specialist Sanctuary Retreats has unveiled an “extensive face lift” for boutique riverside retreat Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma in Zambia. 

The lodge, 12km from Victoria Falls, is on a bend of Zambezi River in Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park. 

It’s part of a multimillion-dollar investment program across the Sanctuary portfolio. 

“The most extensive changes are evident in Sussi & Chuma’s communal areas, including the addition of a new Explorer Lounge and an expansive riverside outdoor bar,” Sanctuary Retreats says. 

“The lodge’s 12 luxurious Sussi tree houses, linked by elevated wooden walkways, have also been comprehensively remodelled, offering a sophisticated take on modern safari life.

“In keeping with Sanctuary Retreats’ Luxury, Naturally ethos, the redesign ingeniously maximises its magical setting in one of the most beautiful parts of the Zambezi, strengthening the feeling of a  connection with nature, whether inside or out.”

There are two private two-bedroom houses with their own dining area, deck with plunge pool, private chef and dedicated staff — “perfect for families, multi-generational travellers, or those seeking the ultimate exclusive safari getaway”. 

Prices start from $US585 (about $770) per person per night, twin share, which includes a choice of two daily shared game-viewing activities. 

Sanctuary Retreats has an extended stay offer: stay 4–6 nights and save up to 30 per cent; stay more than seven nights and save up to 40 per cent.
