The River Club, Livingstone

Yes, the name does sound rather elegant and surprisingly English for its Zambezi setting. There’s an excellent reason for that.

Join the guests at The River Club and you do become part of an elite. You become one of the few to stay there at a time. You are also treated to the luxury of a traditional farmhouse converted, Edwardian-style, into an exclusive resort situated on a sweeping bend of the impressive Zambezi River.

From your elevated position you will have astounding views over the river, Hippo Island (the name is self explanatory) and the Zambezi National Park. From your room you’ll also be able to experience some of the most fabled of all African sunsets. Welcome to the club.
