The Put Foot Rally

Annual events hosted and supported by The Victoria Falls Waterfront and Safari Par Excellence are The Put Foot Rally and Tour D'Afrique.

The Put Foot Rally is an epic road trip adventure where incredible people from all over the world come together to explore and experience the very best of Africa! Crews in a wide variety of whacky vehicles, meet up at checkpoints located at the heart of each country, for awesome parties, and load of giving back through hands-on charity work.

The River Club

The River Club was awarded the inaugural Zambian Heritage and Culture Award in 2009 for all the work carried out in the Livingstone area preserving the heritage in the town as well as being involved in cultural and support efforts in the nearby village. The lodge is also listed as a member of the ECO-LUXURY group of lodges from around the world in 2009, all of whom work to preserve the environment and support local people in the areas we operate.

The River Club has been involved with the local community since 2000, helping improve the lives of the people who live there. This Social Development Project has been hugely successful largely due to the generous donations from guests who have stayed at or been connected to the lodge.
