NOVEMBER 2014 – This past weekend, Opulent Living founders Barbara Lenhard and Florian Gast had the luxury of escaping the busy Mother City to Royal Chundu Zambezi River Lodge in Zambia.
Set on the tranquil banks of the legendary African river near the Victoria Falls, the lodge comprises of the original River Lodge and the even more luxurious Island Lodge. The latter is a scenic ten minute cruise upstream and has its own main building with lounge areas, pool and a lavish deck for breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
The lodge is the first member of the established association ‘Relais & Chateaux’ in Zambia and with the personal management by the owners this place guarantees memorable days.
Seclusion, luxurious accommodation, unspoilt natural landscapes, and a sprinkling of adventure are on the agenda when visiting Royal Chundu.
It was a much-needed weekend of restoration and relaxation. Nothing but compliments were expressed by Barbara and Florian upon their return to Cape Town and glowing eyes showed that they had an outstanding time.
Twelve opulent points goes to the resort for their exceptional service and welcoming hospitality. It is a definite recommendation.
