Tigerfish are renowned for being fighters - experience the rush for yourself

Fishing on the Zambezi

The river is home to an abundance of fresh water fish from those perfect to pair with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc to others that put up a bit more of a fight. The mighty Tigerfish is renowned for being one the hardest fighting fresh water game fish with houdini-like escape tactics. Enjoy time on the river, rod in hand, searching for bass to bream, and the feisty Tigerfish. 

Railway Jewish Museum Tour

Co-founder of The River Club, Peter Jones is passionate about the history of Livingstone. Venture on a journey through the history of the town and it's Jewish heritage beginning at the Museum and continuing through the town to the Synagogue.

Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park - the waterfall experience

The Victoria Falls and rainforest is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The River Club takes guests on guided tours to walk in front of this amazing natural wonder. During high water expect to get wet from the spray (the lodge provides guests with raincoats). At low water see the rock-strewn river bed and water flow below the waterfall and the glory of the gorge formation itself. The views on the Zambian side are different to the views on the Zimbabwe side.

Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park - the wildlife experience

The River Club conducts game viewing drives to see the wide variety of plains game including giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, impala, elephant and buffalo (there are no large predators due to the close proximity of town and other human habitation). The park is also home to the only white rhino in Zambia. However these are not encountered on game drives. To see the white rhino, The River Club can book a Game/Rhino Walk (extra cost – see Walking Safaris).
