The River Club, Kafue, Zambia

The River Club is Livingstone’s premier destination on the Zambezi River, situated 18 kilometers / 11 miles upstream from the renowned Victoria Falls - a World Heritage Site and one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World. The River Club is a boutique owner-run lodge set on a bend of the Zambezi with elevated views over the water, safe from flooding. A classic lodge, ideally situated so guests can explore the historical town of Livingstone and surrounds

The River Club was awarded the inaugural Zambian Heritage and Culture Award 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 a member of the ECO-LUXURY group of lodges from around the world, all of whom work to preserve the environment and communities in the areas in which they 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.
