Amazing time at the River Club
Really an excellent stay. The service is personal. The staff went out of their way to make it special for us. The owner and management were friendly and helpful. The food is great. It could not have been better. Shout out to Belinda, Mark, Peter, and the rest of the staff. Thank you

Small, private, not corporate property. Personalized visit. Excellent communication prior to trip and tours setup of Victoria Falls. My wife and I spent our 10 year anniversary here and we were treated exceptionally well. We felt like the two most important people. The food was excellent. The staff phenomenal. Mark, Charmaine, and leadership staff went above and beyond. I highly recommend and will stay in the future.

I loved everything about it! Charmaine was a high help in organizing our plans. Amy was on top of everything & making sure we keep to our schedule & Tom was always making sure we had whale needed to be comfortable! The owner, Peter, picked us up in his boat to deliver us to the hotel. Very special! Gilbert picked us up from the airport & got us through immigration to Zimbabwe to see the falls...........everything was perfect!!

Wonderful relaxed lodge overlooking the Zambezi. We had a brilliant 3 night stay and the hotel staff organised all our activities for us before we arrived so the whole trip ran very smoothly.

Nurtured by the best team in the best location !
We had high expectations and these were exceeded by some. The warmth of welcome, the spirit of the team, the beauty of the layout and location were simply the best. Our lodge ticked all the boxes and more. Probably the most comfortable bed in the world ! We only really understood the camp's peace and tranquillity on the few brief occasions that we heard the scurrying of the playful monkeys. River Club and the experienced, charming and cheerful team were an ideal springboard from which to fully engage in the local attractions. These, of course, led by The Falls though also including surprisingly exciting safaris, village walks and so much more. I think our favourite time was "the sundowner on The Great Zambesi River" with our great guide, Mack. We shared this experience with some other super guests. Another bonus of this camp being that it unsurprisingly attracts such super, interesting, fun and like-minded guests. The stunning sight of The Great Zambesi River from the camp grew in power and significance the longer our stay. Thank you Peter, Jonathan, Charmaine and your terrific team.
