The River Club’s proximity to Victoria Falls and location on the banks of the Zambezi River offers a unique blend of safari and adventure activities.


Victoria Falls Tour

A World Heritage Site, Victoria Falls straddles the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia and is the most expansive curtain of water in the world. View its roaring waters, spectacular spray and a small rainforest that clings to the Falls’ edge, with a variety of mammals and birds. (A tour on the Zambian side is included in your stay; the view from the Zimbabwean side is at extra cost.)


Interpretive game drives

Game drives into the Zambezi National Park or nearby Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park (in open or closed safari vehicles) offer various wildlife viewing opportunities, such as elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and white rhino, as well as diverse birdlife.


Sundowner Cruise

Relaxing sunset cruises along the Zambezi offer the perfect opportunity to spot a variety of birdlife, as well as plenty of hippo and crocodile in the river.
