Waterberry River Farmhouse


With family holidays and groups of friends in mind we've built River Farmhouse on the site of the old colonial farmhouse on the Zambezi riverbank. The bedrooms are grouped around the central living space with lounge and dining area and large sliding windows leading onto the huge shady terrace. The terrace is perfect for outdoor living – with dining table and comfortable alfresco furniture.


In the large gardens there are sun loungers around the infinity pool between house and river, seats under the shady trees and around the fire pit (for evening warmth) and on the pontoon boat deck.


A private boat with guide for river cruises and fishing; a chef and household staff to cater for you; activities organised for you………. what better way to relax and enjoy the wonderful Zambezi with a group of family or friends?


Rooms at River Farmhouse


River Farmhouse has four bedrooms, two doubles and two twins, named after the points of the compass. South and East doubles have French windows opening onto the terrace and en suite bath/shower rooms. North and West twins with en suite shower rooms overlook the gardens. All bedrooms have ceiling fans, mosquito nets and air conditioner.


The L-shaped lounge has comfortable sofas and chairs with amazing views over the terrace, pool and river to the game park beyond. There’s a fireplace for cold evenings and air conditioner for warm ones. In the kitchen off the lounge chef prepares meals which are served inside or outside depending on the weather.


On the shady terrace guests can dine, relax and stay cool out of the hot sunshine or warm up with braziers on cold evenings. And for those who just can’t bear to leave the world behind there’s wifi – which also means you can download great birding, stargazing and other apps to help you make the most of what you see.


The Pool at River Farmhouse


The infinity pool, lined with Kariba stone that sparkles slightly in the sunshine, lies between house and river so you can sit on the terrace with an almost uninterrupted view of water. It’s deep enough for a good swim, and also has a gently sloping ‘beach’ end making it safer for children.


You can relax on a sunbed or cool off on one of the in-pool platforms with a chilled drink. And the pool lights allow for a midnight dip under the stars. Perfect after a hard day enjoying yourself around Victoria Falls!


Activities at River Farmhouse


See Victoria Falls. Walking around the Falls is different at every season – from so overflowing that viewing is like a tropical rainstorm to the dry season where you can see all the way to the rapids at the bottom.


At the Farmhouse your private boat can take you on sunset, dawn or daytime cruises, fishing and island picnics.


There’s guided birding with our local guides, and guided tours to the village (many of our staff live in the local villages and are proud to explain how rural Zambians lead their lives) support the local preschool. The tour of Livingstone town, museum and markets shows you past and present in this town that used to be the country’s capital.


The Falls visit and activities run from the Farmhouse will be organised for you – other activities run by outside operators can be booked and paid for at the Farmhouse.
