About
Description
A boutique, owner-run luxury lodge, The River Club is Livingstone’s premier destination on the Zambezi River. The River Club is defined by the value we attach to lasting memories, genuine hospitality, our More peaceful location, the historical preservation of Livingstone and our commitment to the local community of which we form part. Just 18 kms/11 miles upstream from the renowned Victoria Falls and town of Livingstone, in a tranquil oasis, are our eleven spacious suites individually nestled within the tree line overlooking a sweeping bend of the mighty Zambezi River. From their elevated positions, the suites are perfectly situated to gaze across the river to the Zambezi National Park on the opposite bank, home to an array of wildlife and birds in an area of abundant natural beauty. For that perfect mix of idyllic relaxation and adventure travel, along with unbeatable sights, The River Club is the ultimate destination. Less

Depends on time of year. We went late July 2016 and paid around $925 for the 2 of us which included everything. Loved, loved, loved it.
