    Take a short drive in the lodge’s Game Viewer into the nearby park, Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, the smallest in the country but the most visited due to its proximity to Victoria Falls.

    Sunset river cruise

    The best way to settle into being on the awesome Zambezi river is to sit back and relax on one of The River Club’s evening sunset cruises. Take binoculars and camera with you because you never know what you might see as the boat drifts quietly along. The helmsman has eagle-eyes on the look-out for anything and everything that may be moving on or in the water or on the riverbank. Sunset cruises come with snacks and house-brand drinks included.
