The River Club is defined by the value they attach to helping family and friends create lasting memories together. Their unpretentious hospitality, the outstanding, exclusive and safe location, the preservation of historic Livingstone, and commitment to the community we live in, all form part of our ethos.
They offer a realistic experience by combining the natural heritage of the Zambezi River and Victoria Falls, culturally-extraordinary Livingstone-town as well as visits to Simonga Village, an authentic piece of present-day semi-rural life.
Their mission is achieved by giving service and synergy to our community, while exceptional attention to detail elevates each stay – turning moments into magic for our guests.
The River Club is situated on the banks of the Zambezi River situated 20 kilometres / 12 miles upstream from the legendary Victoria Falls – a World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
The lodge itself is one-of-a-kind and arguably the only privately owned boutique lodge in the Victoria Falls area. Soaked in ambiance and history, the restored 1940’s homestead has a comfortable lounge, dining room and library. Meals are often enjoyed on the veranda or in the lush gardens beneath the trees.
Weddings at the River Club
The River Club is an oasis of serenity and the ideal location for a special occasion, providing a perfect setting for intimate or special celebrations. The lodge is away from the hubbub and noise around the Victoria Falls which ensures that as a wedding or special event destination, the lodge provides complete tranquillity in an extraordinary venue. As a private lodge, the property hosts weddings, vow renewals, birthdays, anniversaries or any other momentous celebration.
The maximum number of guests for the main event, including those booked to stay at the lodge, is 100. For your wedding or special occasion, the whole lodge has to be booked by the group for a minimum of 3 nights (one night before and one after the event date).
The River Club has 11 suites with a total of 26 beds. All guests accommodated at The River Club will be on a Fully Inclusive package option. Please enquire for rates.
The wedding couple/couples whose honour the event is being held also includes a Champagne-style breakfast in their suite on the morning after the wedding or event.
Bar service is provided by The River Club and a photographer can be sourced. Couples also have the option of using a 1929 open-top Rolls Royce (maximum 3 passengers) for short rides within the vicinity of the lodge for an extra cost.
Plan your Victoria Falls function with us
The River Club enjoys any and all celebrations and will do their best to accommodate guest requests. The property boasts many activities on-site available for guests including a 2,1km nature trail, swimming pool overlooking the Zambezi River, Summer House with a snooker table, darts and other games, a croquet and boules lawn and a tennis court. A small on-site gym as well as Treatment Room are also available to guests. Please enquire should you wish to book a treatment.
During low water season, the lodge has a small island, dubbed Honeymoon Island, that pops up right in front of the lodge. Couples can therefore enjoy sundowners in the middle of the Zambezi River and take in the beauty of the lodge from a different angle. The River Club has two private cruise boats for guests to go out on sundowner cruises, only available to guests staying at the lodge.
