The dinner cruise was absolutely wonderful. The food was great with a four course meal and unlimited drinks, and the views of wildlife were unmatched. We saw many hippos, elephants, and even a crocodile a few feet from a hippo. The staff were professional and...More

Great food and great service. We didn’t even see the spray of the falls. Transport added an extra 45 minutes on each end.
