The River Farmhouse, Zambia | Discover Africa Safaris

The River Farmhouse


Make The River Farmhouse part of your safari from

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 friends?
