The River Club

Situated high on the banks of the Zambezi River, The River Club offers some of the most magnificent views in the area, and with the Victoria Falls just around the corner. The Lodge is homely and luxurious and has an older-colonial touch to it giving a historical feel throughout the Lodge. The River Club is all about offering their guests an authentic experience so relax, unwind and enjoy the adventures that are on offer at this beautiful spot.

Why we love The River Club!

The rooms are large and spacious with amazing views looking out onto the river. The grounds are beautiful and other than the usual safari activities there is a pool to enjoy as well as a gym. Dinner outside was a special touch and the sunset cruise was a highlight.

Client Reviews

  • Outstanding

    A fabulous location, an excellent product and amazing staff. The food was beautifully cooked and presented. The view over the Zambezi was wonderful and the sunset cruise was full of sightings in the water and on the river banks. Our Lodge was superb with a great view from the plunge pool of the river. Our arrival by river to the Club was an unexpected delight!

  • Three nights was too short!

    We stayed at the River Club as our first destination of a 3 week trip to the southern half of Africa where the Vic Falls was our first destination. We found the Club a wonderful venue with great character, located above the Zambezi River. We really enjoyed our stay & found all the staff exceedingly helpful & attentive.

  • Beautiful Lodge right on the Zambezi

    We stayed here for the last two nights of our honeymoon and weren’t disappointed. The lodge is situated on the banks of the Zambezi offering incredible views over the river. We enjoyed sitting out for pre dinner drinks watching the sunset over the river on the terrace at the end of the day. We stayed in one of the suits which overlooked the river and had its own plunge pool. The accommodation itself was clean, comfortable with a traditional feel which we loved.
