We hope you enjoy the snacks and drinks provided and suggest you bring the camera along!

FUN & GAMES

An all-weather hard tennis court, central croquet lawn, boules, and snooker are available to all guests. There is more to do here than meets the eye both in the area and at Victoria Falls.

BIRD LOVERS’ PARADISE

People travel to Africa from all over the world to see the Schalow’s Loerie and the African Finfoot, residents at The Club. Other birds to try and spot in the area include the African Skimmer and native Fish Eagle whilst the Taita Falcon and Black Eagle can be found in the gorges below the Victoria Falls.

KIDS @ THE CLUB

The River Club is an ideal destination for families with children aged 6 years and older. Set on a 50-acre secure property with sprawling gardens, the lodge provides the perfect setting for young ones to run around and explore. Young guests have a “Kids @ the Club” adventure bag available to them, including a booklet featuring activities to complete and an insect catch and release kit. Under the supervision of parents, children have the opportunity to build their own raft with a raft building kit (featuring eco-materials such as driftwood, rope, and fabric for a sail). Some activities have minimum ages or require a parent/guardian to be present. Please speak to our team to enquire about more information.
