About The River Club
Rooms: 10

The River Club, with its Edwardian-style house and manicured lawns on the Zambian side of the Zambezi River, seems to straddle the continents of Africa and Europe. Its main area is a well-appointed residence with a comfortable lounge, large dining room, impressive library and wide veranda on which breakfasts and teas are taken. Lush gardens spread out beneath the trees and a croquet court is an ideal venue for a Pimm's-soaked croquet game. The pool seems part of the river itself, while a secluded deck with hammocks and loungers provides respite. A wellness centre houses a treatment room for manicures, pedicures, facials and massages as well as a sauna, Jacuzzi and mini gym.

Ten luxury chalets are spread out amongst the riverine vegetation, comprising luxurious bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms. Their originality stems from the fact that one side is completely open to the river, so that there is an uninterrupted vista of the Zambezi and its far bank from both bed and bathtub. Each room looks west into glorious African sunsets best viewed from the privacy of a ball and claw bath, brim-full with bubbles.

Activities include sundowner cruises, visits to the Victoria Falls, Simonga Village, local markets and Livingstone town. Also on offer is a variety of adrenaline-loaded activities at extra cost: white water rafting, bungee jumping, abseiling, and helicopter flights over the Falls.
