4Cs Projects at The River Club

Committed to Wilderness Safaris’ 4Cs ethic, The River Club contributes to various projects to support the local Zambian community and their conservation efforts.


Elephant Chilli Pepper Project

Run by the Elephant Pepper Development Trust, this project helps farmers protect their food crops and generate income. Dried chillies mixed with dung produce briquettes to burn at night and a paste is used to grease a ‘chilli fence’ to keep the elephants away.

Community Upliftment Projects

Community involvement is vital in the Livingstone area and The River Club’s projects focus particularly on assisting children via schooling, as well as income-generating activities for the adults. Other initiatives have included connecting clean water and providing essential medical equipment to the clinic.

Pack for a Purpose

Wilderness Safaris has partnered with Pack for a Purpose, a non-profit organisation that provides travellers with up-to-date information about required supplies for community-based projects. Guests that would like to bring along a contribution can view the needs list for The River Club’s community projects on the Pack for a Purpose website.

A Quote From Our Guests

“ In a breathtaking location overlooking the Zambezi, a stay at this fabulous colonial era property feels like a house party with friends. Great food, varied (included) activities, but most importantly, wonderful staff and management. ”
