It lies about twelve kilometres upstream from the world-famous Victoria Falls. This safari camp in Southern Africa has been named after Dr David Livingstone's faithful friends Sussi and Chuma.

The two private Chuma Houses are ideal for families with young children travelling together. Each of these magnificent houses offers two en-suite bedrooms, a welcoming, spacious lounge and dining area as well as a private plunge pool. Guests enjoy the benefit of their private chef and house staff.

The Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma offers an exclusive wellness retreat where the guest is welcome to indulge in various spa treatments including massages, facials and manicures. The treatment room sits beautifully on the riverbank, offering guests up-close views of passing wildlife while being pampered.
