KOSHER & HALAAL KITCHENS
Luxury Kosher Safari @ The River Club
The history of Zambia’s small yet significant Jewish community is a personal passion for Peter Jones, an owner of The River Club. His enthusiasm for the subject has led him on a journey from the past to the present and along the way, Peter decided that The River Club would offer guests the opportunity to visit the Victoria Falls, while remaining observant.
Both kitchens are laid out according to kosher rules. All cutlery, crockery, utensils, equipment etc are stored permanently in these kitchens and used only for Kosher catering. All food and ingredients are strictly kosher.
