The Chundukwa Enviroment Animal and nature lovers, we have grown up in this beautiful country and would like to do as much as we are able to conserve and protect this area. We aim for this to be conveyed throughout our lodge, from the structures we build and the food we serve, to the training and support we give our community, and assistance to wildlife and domestic animals found in our area. Chundukwa River Lodge is built by Doug with his team of local artisans. We ensure no habitat loss on the shores of the Zambezi River, thus our stilted chalets have little interference with the river bank – we haven’t cut away reeds or trees, allowing birds and wildlife such as hippos and otters to move freely between land and water. All building materials and furniture are produced in the area. From locally burnt clay bricks, to sustainable local reeds, Kalahari sand, recycled wood and steel and in recent years, zero use of indigenous hardwoods. Our local artisans of weavers, thatchers, tinsmiths, tailors, welders and carpenters from the nearby villages work their magic and benefit directly from having a busy and productive lodge. The décor is an inspired measure of traditional printed fabrics bought in our local markets. These fabrics are worn and utilised daily by men and women here.
In season, our veggie patch produces wonderful crops of organic cherry tomatoes, strawberries, aubergines, marrows, rocket, lettuce, coriander, parsley, basil and other herbs, all nourished with our compost waste from the kitchen and our farmyard. There are some excellent local suppliers of chicken, beef, pork and vegetables whom we support. We provide spring water stations in the lodge where guests can top up their own water bottles or have the use of our own appointed re-usable bottles to reduce the impact of plastic on the environment. Chundukwa River Lodge also uses no pesticides, herbicides or chemicals on our land. All materials provided and used in the lodge are environmentally friendly. We separate our rubbish and waste, and work with a refuse company that recycles much of this matter. Chundukwa River Lodge is not only a haven for people but also a sanctuary for all animals – wild and domestic. Historically, this area has been a crossing point for elephants, as they move along their ancient migration routes between Zimbabwe and Zambia. We have kept the lodge free of fences, so as not to impede the movements of these giants and allow for much needed access to water. Similarly, hippos are somewhat limited by encroaching developments along the Zambezi River. Having to consume up to 40kg of grass a day we are here to ensure that they are free to come out of the river and graze on our lawns at night. If there has been little rain as is the case in the past few years, we have refrained from mowing our beautiful lawns so as give them adequate food supply. It is not unlikely that that once you are in bed that the hippos will make their way up the riverbanks to feed.
The Chundukwa Community Most of our team live in the nearby Muke or Simonga village. We are immensely proud of our small team of dedicated staff who have been (for the most part) with Chundukwa for many years, many having started on the farm and stables before working their way into key positions in the lodge. Some members of the team are second generation having learned and harnessed hospitality skills following in footsteps of their parents.
Chundukwa supports a small feeding scheme for the youngest members of Muke Community, so that the little ones are guaranteed a meal a day, which is often an extra incentive to go to school. We also support a newly established orphanage in Simonga Village. A visit to the village is a guest highlight.
