The eleven private and spacious suites are individually set within magnificent trees on the edge of the Zambezi River, overlooking pods of hippo into the Zambezi National Park. All are west facing and take advantage of the spectacular African sunsets. The rooms are named after people who in their day played a special part in the history of the country.
The large dining room can seat all guests at one sitting at the impressively long teak dining table, although most meals tend to be served outside on the elegant terrace or by the poolside.
The lodge is set on a 50 acre secure property with manicured gardens, where one can completely relax.
Here there are no early wake up calls; guests are encouraged to lie in and enjoy the surroundings. The ‘Do Nothing Activity’ (DNA) around one of the most magnificent pools is very popular, especially at the end of a safari! A magnificent rim flow swimming pool, pool loungers, private deck and hammocks complete the setting.
An all-weather hard tennis court and a central croquet lawn and a 2km nature trail that can also be used as a running track for those who need to keep fitness levels topped up.
There is a comfortable sitting room with fireplace and a well-stocked library with an interesting collection of books, journals and board games. Wi-Fi provides connectivity throughout the main building and to most areas of the property. The gift shop sells clothing, jewellery, postcards, books, curios and crafts.
Not surprisingly, activities at The River Club are largely based around the Zambezi, both upstream and further down at the Victoria Falls – about 45 minutes’ drive away. The lodge has its own boat which offers leisurely sun-downer cruises accompanied by an experienced river guide. Although there are a couple of other lodges in the vicinity with their own boats, you won’t see anywhere near the volume of traffic you might expect further downstream.
If being on the water is really your thing then why not try your hand at a spot of fishing? Whether a novice or an experienced angler you can spend a morning using the Club’s tackle before returning in time for lunch. Also on offer, of course, are tours of the Falls as well as visits to a local village (where many of the staff live with their families).
Also on offer; Game Drives, visit the local African Village, Helicopter flight over the Falls, White Water Rafting, Jet Boating, Quad Biking Safaris and MUCH more!
For those looking to keep fit while away, The River Club has its own tennis courts and even a couple of running tracks which ring the property.
