Picturesque B&B Lodge
Bed & breakfast chalets, lodges and premium lodges in the Zambian countryside by the Kafue River.
Riverview Lodge is ideally situated for a getaway from the big city, or for travellers on their way to Livingstone looking to experience more of what Zambia has to offer. We are on a lovely campus and farm of over 1,100 hectares reaching from the Kafue River along the rocky escarpment and into the distance.
The bright green of banana plantations contrast nicely against the deep green of new avocado plantations and the sweeping views across the centre pivots full of windblown wheat or soya. Large old growth forests still cover large parts of the property providing cool shaded walks from the intense African heat.
Open as Usual
The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has affected everybody, especially the hospitality industry. We are following all the government guidelines to ensure everybody’s safety, and we are pleased to announce that Riverview is now open for bookings and wellness courses as usual.

Fishing & Cruises
Spend a relaxing day on the river. The river downstream widens and reaches the Kafue Dam after 22km. Upstream you can go as far as Kafue National Park - that could be a real adventure!
There are great fishing opportunities. The Kafue River is home to five species of bream that can grow to over 3.5kg.
Another option is the Lady Betty river cruise; houseboat designed to make sure that guests want for nothing.
Riverview Lodge is part of a 1,100 hectare site with access to the banana plantations and all the surrounding countryside. You can climb the escarpment for commanding views of the river plain and the sunsets.
All you will need is comfortable shoes and your camera to capture the scenery. We'll supply an easy to follow route map and a water bottle.
