The main lodge building comprises of the dining room, well stocked library and drawing room. The swimming pool is situated on the edge of the cliff overlooking the river and the curio shop is also worth a look. At extra cost there are massages available here at the club.

The River Club although not being a game lodge, has the Zambezi National Park just across the river. The bird-watching here is excellent and hippos are regularly sighted along the river banks. Fishing for tiger fish is very popular here, especially during the warmer months. Trips to the Victoria Falls and boating excursions to the islands in the Zambezi River are a great way of spending the day.
