The River Club Zambia
The Dining area of The River Club Zambia

The River Club Zambia is defined by the values attached to helping families and friends create lasting memories together. Unpretentious hospitality in an outstanding, exclusive and safe location. Their preservation of historic Livingstone, and commitment to the community they live in, all form part of their ethos.

The River Club offers a realistic experience by combining the natural heritage of the Zambezi River and Victoria Falls, culturally-extraordinary Livingstone-town as well as visits to Simonga Village, an authentic piece of present-day semi-rural life.

The River Club offers a hassle-free and gratifying array of experiences for guests of all ages to enjoy.

Soaked in ambience and history; the lodge's main building is a well-appointed rebuilt 1940's homestead with a comfortable lounge, dining room, and library complete with wrap-around veranda and gift shop. Meals are often enjoyed on the veranda, in the Gazebo, around the infinity pool or in the lush gardens beneath the trees. There are many alternatives for private dining, making The River Club relaxed and easy for purposes of social distancing. A secluded deck above the river adds to the infinity pool area which seems part of the river itself. For the energetic, the croquet lawn, the gymnasium, walking/running trail and all-weather tennis court are perfect. A 'Summerhouse' and snooker room provide additional areas to enjoy. Beauty treatments are available in the Wellness Centre.

Eleven spacious, private suites are individually set within the tree line along the edge of the magnificent Zambezi. From their elevated positions, the suites are perfectly situated to gaze across the river to the Zambezi National Park in Zimbabwe on the opposite bank, home to an array of wildlife and birds in an area of abundant natural beauty. Renowned for their spectacular views and romantic ambience, each suite looks west into the glorious African sunset, idyllically viewed from the privacy of the ball-and-claw bath.
