Chikunto Lodge

South Luangwa

Chikunto Safari Lodge is situated north of the central area of South Luangwa on the banks of the Luangwa River (Big Bend Site).

This small-scale lodge enjoys sweeping views of the Luangwa River and accommodates just 12 people. The main lodge area is under thatch housing a cosy bar and dining area. The salt water swimming pool offers cool respite; a perfect vantage from which to take in the beautiful setting.

The inviting fire pit is a popular meeting place before safari activities and around dinner time.
