This camp has been around since the mid 90’s and is built on a raised part of the river bank some 17 kilometres upstream from the Falls and 30 minutes drive from the airport. The camp is well designed to take advantage of the views across a wide bend in the main river and the perspective from camp is wonderful.
The central area is delightfully colonial in style with old books, silverware and plenty of photographs to complete the illusion that one has stepped back in time. This feeling is further enhanced on meeting the owner manager Peter Jones, an ex British army officer with a passion for the history of the area.
The camp sleeps a maximum of 20 guests, the rooms were designed to be open fronted but inquisitive monkeys amongst other unwanted wildlife have forced the fronts to be screened in recent years. The rooms are split level and extend out from the steep river bank. There is a pool with a fantastic elevated view of the river and also a croquet lawn.
The Luxury River Suites
Imagine a place where days are spent languishing on a secluded private deck, dipping into a private pool and gazing over the Zambezi River from a private suite.
Each of the two Luxury River Suites have spacious, open plan interiors offering the ultimate space in which to relax and unwind after a day spent exploring Victoria Falls, or playing lawn games, or visiting other nearby attractions. Decorated with furniture made from Zambezi teak, these rooms also feature a living area and one queen-size bed swathed with a walk-in mosquito net. Both suites have a full bathroom.
One Luxury River Suite has an additional half-bathroom as well as room to accommodate an extra single bed. This room is gauze-fronted.
The other Luxury River Suite is glass-fronted and has one full-bathroom.
Both Luxury River Suites have overhead fans above the beds, air-conditioning units (cool or warm), hotel-type safes, a hair-dryer, a mini-bar fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. In the event of power outages, each room has an inverter/solar battery back-up system to run the overhead fan, as well as certain lights and plug sockets.
There are 2 Luxury River Suites: Livingstone Luxury River Suite and Rhodes Luxury River Suite, each sleeps 2 guests.
