The River Club is situated on the Zambian side of the Zambezi River, 18 kilometres upstream from Victoria Falls. It faces westward into the sunset and onto the Zambezi National Park on the opposite side of the river. Guests here can enjoy the sights and sounds of Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River in a peaceful and tranquil setting away from the crowds.
The Victoria falls is one of the seven "Wonders of the World" and is arguably the greatest waterfall anywhere. Daily excursions to the Falls are a highlight and boating trips to the Zambezi River's islands provide wonderful activities. Fishing and sundowner trips are offered, as are daily visits to the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park for White Rhino and other game. Trips to the Livingstone and Railway Museums and a nearby African village are also offered. Other activities available at extra cost include: white water rafting, river surfing, bungi jumping, abseiling, parachuting, microlight and helicopter flights over the Falls, horse riding, clay pigeon shooting and canoeing.
11 spacious, private suites are individually nestled within the tree line along the edge of the magnificent Zambezi River. From their elevated positions, the suites are perfectly situated to gaze across the river to the Zambezi National Park on the opposite bank, home to an array of wildlife and birds in an area of abundant natural beauty. Renowned for their spectacular views, each room looks west into the glorious African sunset, best viewed from the privacy of the ball-and-claw bath.
The lodge's main area is a well-appointed Edwardian house with lounge, dining room, library, shop and veranda on which breakfasts and teas are taken. Midday meals are often served on manicured lawns, complete with a croquet court. The gazebo and the Summer House (with snooker room) are both alternatives for private dining and the infinity pool seems part of the river itself. A secluded deck provides respite and beauty treatments are available in the Wellness Centre. For the energetic, the gymnasium, running trails and all-weather tennis court are perfect.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.
