The River Club
Eleven luxury en-suite chalets (including 1 family and three suites) are screened, air- conditioned and have uninterrupted views of the Zambezi.
For the energetic the gymnasium, running track on the secure property and all-weather tennis court are perfect. Activities (on an inclusive rate) include a Victoria Falls Tour on the Zambian side, sundowner cruises, tiger fishing, and visiting a nearby village. Others (extra cost) include white water rafting, bungee jumping, abseiling, canoeing, and flights over the Falls. The area is steeped in local history and rich in wildlife; hippo and elephant are seen regularly and birdlife is prolific.
The River Club overlooks the Zambezi River, 18 km (11 miles) upstream from Victoria Falls. Its main area is a well-appointed Edwardian house with lounge, dining room, library, shop and veranda on which breakfasts and teas are taken. Midday meals are often served on manicured lawns complete with croquet court. The gazebo and the Summer House (with snooker room) are both alternatives for private dining. The pool seems part of the river itself, a secluded deck provides respite and beauty treatments are available in the Wellness Centre.
