The River Club is a tranquil oasis on Zambia’s mighty Zambezi River and the perfect location for a small or large wedding. Located close to the renowned Victoria Falls - a World Heritage Site and one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World, The River Club provides an exotic location for intimate affairs of only 26 guests, or larger celebrations of up to 100 guests.
