River Farmhouse, Zambia

The newest part of one of our favorite Victoria Falls lodges, Waterberry, this exclusive use farmhouse was built on the site of the old colonial farmhouse on 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. 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 aircon for warm ones. In the kitchen off the lounge chef prepares meals which are served inside or outside depending on the weather. 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. Perfect after a hard day enjoying yourself around Victoria Falls!

River Farmhouse, Zambia

The Victoria Falls is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and are the largest sheet of falling water on earth - a spellbinding and mesmerizing spectacle. The sheer mass of water cascading down the 100m drop across nearly 2km makes a thunderous roar in full flood and creates a magnificent spray of water that can be seen for miles - hence the local name 'Mosi oa Tunya' meaning 'the smoke that thunders'. 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 in advance or at the Farmhouse.

River Farmhouse is an exclusive use farmhouse offering private vehicles, private guides, house staff and 4 bedrooms accommodating up to 8 guest. The farmhouse is accessed by road transfer, scheduled or private charter flights. Once settled in enjoy Victoria Falls visits, birding, village and market visits, river cruises, fishing and island picnics.
