The River Farmhouse sits just 200m from Waterberry Lodge, in its own 3-acre plot. Built on the site of an original colonial farmhouse, this stunning sole use property has four ensuite bedrooms (two double, two twin), carefully positioned around a large, comfortable lounge and huge shady veranda, with the most beautiful grounds and a private infinity pool overlooking the wonderful Zambezi River. All four bedrooms are en suite, with fans and air conditioning, huge draped mosquito nets and electric blankets for cooler evenings.

The house is intended for families and groups holidaying and relaxing together. With a private chef and waiters, and a boat for exclusive use, River Farmhouse is a truly amazing escape to enjoy while on a trip to see the wonderful Victoria Falls.

The River Farmhouse is a perfect place to relax and recover from the rigors of safari or long flights. You are made to feel completely at home, whilst enjoying the private house staff, vehicle and boat. The décor echoes the colonial feel of the building – Afghan rugs on cool polished floors, Moroccan lighting adding splashes of colour in the evening, old paintings and exotic mirrors.

Outside is a seating area where you can lounge on comfortable eco friendly recycled furniture and sun loungers in sun or shade. At night, relax under the stars, with the croaking of frogs, the grunting of hippos, and the call of hyena and lion echo through the sky.

The Farmhouse is only 35 minutes from Victoria Falls. Explore this wonder via a helicopter ride over the falls or a swim in Devils Pool. Visit the museums or tour the Livingstone town and markets.
The River Farmhouse boat will take you on sunset, daytime or dawn cruises, fishing trips, island picnics. On land you’ll have the chance for guided birding trips and visits to the local village where the school is supported by guest donations.
