Yoga on the Zambezi River in Zambia


Imagine starting your day with a morning meditation session and a sunrise yoga class held on a beautiful riverfront deck hugging the Zambezi River surrounded by the sound of moving water and singing birds. On The River Club yoga retreat, this is exactly how every morning begins.


During the day you can spend your time around the lodge - book a massage or other spa service to really relax. Alternatively you could make visit to Victoria Falls, go on rhino game walk, or if you’re a little more adventurous go white water rafting.

In the late afternoon a second yoga session will take place but this time it will be whilst watching the sun set over the Zambezi River.

Yoga sessions will progress over the duration of the retreat, adding new poses each day. The aim is to make sure guests leave the retreat feeling more confident in their yoga practice and able to continue on at home.


Eating wholesome food is an important part of the retreat and contributes to the overall feeling of wellbeing; this is why all meals served are packed full of nutrients using many local, seasonal ingredients.

Your yoga instructor, Carolyn McPherson, has many years of teaching experience around the world, teaching at retreats, in studios, and privately. Carolyn spent 8 months in India living on a yoga ashram and studying yoga.

The retreat is held at The River Club, an oasis of natural beauty and tranquillity overlooking the Zambezi River. You will be staying in a beautiful riverfront cottage, with a large bedroom, two bathrooms, an outdoor deck, and breath-taking views.

The River Club and this yoga retreat strive to be leaders of sustainability, ecological conservation, and conscientious travel in this region. They support various community projects, work with local talent, project the environment around them, and use recycled materials. By attending this yoga retreat, your investment helps to support the ecology and the community around the Zambezi.
