      The River Club

      A Comfortable Base for Victoria Falls Activities in Zambia

      Livingstone, Zambia is renowned for the impressive Victoria Falls. Over one mile wide, Victoria Falls is the most expansive curtain of water in the world and drops more than 328 feet into the sheer Zambezi Gorge. Located in the southwest corner of Zambia, these falls and the Zambezi River are the central points in an area of spectacular scenic beauty. The River Club is located on a magnificent vantage point, providing stunning views over a sweeping bend on the Zambezi River, 11 miles upstream from Victoria Falls. The lodge boasts 11 chalets, each named after people who in their day played a special part in the history of Zambia. All are individually set within a magnificent stand of trees on the edge of the river and have impressive views over the Zambezi and spectacular African sunsets. Each room is open-plan and beautifully decorated with furniture and fittings made from Rhodesian teak wood and includes wi-fi access, mini-fridge with bottled water, digital safe, hairdryer, reading lamps, small library, writing desk and a sitting area. Large mosquito nets swathe the beds combined with an electric fan and air conditioner/heating units to provide a comfortable flow of air above the beds. Each room has a bath, shower, shaver socket and “loo with a view” overlooking the river. Screen doors can be opened to give unimpeded views. The lodge is set on a 50-acre secure property with manicured gardens, where a guest can totally relax without having to go anywhere if they choose not to, enjoying a magnificent swimming pool with one of the best views of Africa from its infinity vista. Additional facilities include a small gymnasium, wellness center, tennis court and croquet lawn. The following activities (two per day) are included in the accommodation cost at the River Club: game drives through Mosi-oa-Tunya Park, sundowner cruises on the Zambezi River, guided visits to the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls, visit to local village, and fishing.
