Riverview Lodge & Wellness Centre

Changing lives since 2006

It wasn’t long ago that “experts” claimed that diabetes was irreversible. Yet despite the claims of the experts, Riverview Wellness Centre opened its doors in 2006 with the premise that lifestyle was the answer to the growing epidemic.

Today, our research based lifestyle change programme continues to help hundreds to regain control of their health by changing the very things in their lifestyle that brought about disease.

Who we are

We are Christians seeking to show that God really cares about the wellbeing and happiness of his people. Riverview is a division of Riverside Farm Institute, a non-profit organisation.

Located just outside Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia, Riverview offers its guests a delightful natural retreat with spectacular views of the magnificent Kafue river. Comfortable and inviting accommodations amidst well-kept gardens provide the adequate setting for our 7-day On-site Diabetes and Hypertension Reversal Programme®.

“A well thought-out and planned programme. Totally wholesome. I had a great time”
