A tribute to Africa’s colonial past, the River Club's Edwardian-style main house, manicured lawns, and luxury chalets are perched on the banks of the majestic Zambezi River just over ten miles upstream from world-famous Victoria Falls.
The club’s eleven luxury chalets sprawl out along the banks of the river with each room having one side completely open to the river. Each air-conditioned chalet is named after an important person from the local history. Most of the chalets are split level, and all offer en-suite bathroom facilities with a bath, shower, and double vanities. The family suite has two en suite bedrooms. The chalets enjoy a private deck with a plunge pool. Other amenities include overhead fans, in-room safe, tea and coffee facilities, and a hair dryer.
The River Club’s enviable location makes it the ideal base from which to experience the Zambezi River, Victoria Falls, and Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park. The Park’s name means the smoke which thunders, and is the Kololo name given to world-famous Victoria Falls, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the seven natural wonder of the world. The nearby Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park covers twenty-five square miles from the Songwe Gorge below the falls in a north-west arc along about the Zambian river bank. The wildlife park is home to Angolan giraffe, Grant’s zebra, warthog, sable, eland, Cape buffalo, impala, and other antelope. There are ten rhinos living in the park. Hippos and Nile crocodiles frequent the mighty Zambezi River below the Falls.
