This upmarket Zambezi River lodge has a distinctly Edwardian flavour, reflected in its décor and superb service. The restored 1940s Edwardian homestead has a comfortable lounge, dining room, library and veranda where breakfasts and teas are enjoyed. Midday meals are often served in the lush gardens spread out beneath the trees.
The River Club is set on a 50 acre secure property with sprawling gardens. The gazebo and the Summer House (with snooker room) provide alternatives for private dining at The River Club. The pool seems part of the river itself, a secluded deck provides respite and beauty treatments are available in the Wellness Centre. For the energetic, the running track on the secure property, gymnasium and all-weather tennis court are ideal.
Your suite at The River Club has floor to ceiling sliding glass doors looking out onto the Zambezi River and over pods of hippo into the Zambezi National Park.
