VICTORIA FALLS - ZAMBIA

THE RIVER CLUB IN VICTORIA FALLS - ZAMBIA
THE RIVER CLUB

River Club - Zambia - www.classicencounters.com

The River Club is situated on the Zambian side of the Zambezi River, 18 kilometres upstream from Victoria Falls. The camp has a distinct Edwardian flavour, and guests here enjoy the sights and sounds of Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River in a peaceful and tranquil setting away from the crowds.

Ten luxury, thatched chalets overlook the Zambezi River, and have en-suite facilities including a bath, shower, toilet and basin. All the rooms have fans. The rooms are all completely open in the front giving guests the best possible views of the Zambezi. The main building also has an interesting library.

The Victoria Falls are one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World and is arguably the greatest waterfall in the world. Daily trips to the Falls are a highlight. Boating to the Zambezi River's islands provides relaxed afternoon activities, and fishing and sundowner trips are offered.

The Zambezi National Park is located just across the river, and elephants can be seen on the river bank.  A rich bird life is found in the area. Hippos are regularly sighted (and heard) along the river's edge.
