  1. Great from start to finish

    From the great staff and delicious meals to the eventful drives and boat tour with our #1 guide Phixon we had a momentous time. As a photographer I was able to capture some memorable shots in the sanctuary. Such a fantastic time!

  2. Terrific lodge from which to start your safari adventure!

    The accommodations and staff here were OUTSTANDING! We were so well received and given a brief orientation upon arrival. It was so comfortable. We were on a 9 day safari to four different Sanctuary camps. This was the first and a great place to ‘get our safari legs!’ Our first ‘game drive’ was to the rhino preserve. Fascinating. Visiting the bike shop, school, and clinic at Nakatindi village was inspiring. Victoria Falls are wondrous. Meals at Sussi & Chuma were delicious and varied. The pinotage became a favorite!

  3. Amazing stay at Sussi and Chuma

    We loved our stay on Sussi&Chuma. The friendliness of staff, the knowledge of the guides, the cooking (incl caterpillars…), the evening visits by the elephants, the nights around the fire talking…., the white rhinos…. only positive things to say. We felt like being part of the family. Special thanks to Phixon and Junior!
