Several years ago, a friend and I were traveling together prior to flying to Cape Town to board the old QE@ for a cruise to Southampton. Through another mutual friend in Cape Town, we dealt with a very competent travel agent who booked us at The River Club. I still reflect on that trip, as it was one of the best of the best I've ever done ... and I've visited all 50 states, 37 countries, and soon to be all seven continents. (Yes, I've been fortunate!). Anyway ... I couldn't afford The River Club now on my retirement, but while I was working it was definitely worth the splurge! I would love to go back ... it sort of seems like a wonderful dream these days. Trust me, you will NOT be disappointed! I can't praise it high enough.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The River Club is the only boutique hotel in the area and run by its owner. This former residence is a tranquil oasis on Zambia's mighty Zambezi River and is the perfect location for a visit to the renowned Victoria Falls - a World Heritage Site and one of 2 places in the world to have remained on the list the 7 Natural Wonders of the World (the other being the Grand Canyon). Located a mere 26kms/16 miles upstream from the Falls and 18kms/ 11miles from the historical town of Livingstone, The River Club forms a perfect end to a safari circuit in Southern or East Africa. The 11 private and spacious suites are individually set within magnificent trees on the edge of the Zambezi River, overlooking pods of hippo into the Zambezi National Park. A host of activities await young and old, on property as well as around the Victoria Falls. The lodge is set on a 50 acre secure property with manicured gardens, where one can completely relax away from all the noise of helicopters over hotels closer to the Falls. A magnificent rim flow swimming pool, pool loungers, private deck and hammocks complete the setting. An all-weather hard tennis court, a central croquet lawn and a 2km nature trail that can also be used as a running track for those who need to keep fitness levels topped up. Daily sunset cruises on the Zambezi River are offered at sunset. Activities in the area include a visit to the mighty Victoria Falls, game drives in the nearby Mosi-Oa-Tunga National Park, white water rafting, helicopter flights over the Falls, canoeing safaris, historical tours including places of Jewish interest and more. Dining under the stars is a highlight and a kosher kitchen ensures we are able to cater for those who require it. ... more less
