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.


Cultural Community Visit

Community involvement is vital in the Livingstone area and one of The River Club’s projects is cultural visits to a nearby village. Projects are focused particularly on assisting children via schooling and income-generating activities.

Pack for a Purpose

Wilderness has partnered with Pack for a Purpose, an innovative way that guests can help by packing stationery or other small amenities and bringing these when they visit a school or village. The River Club is part of this project.

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.
