Get ready to see a river as wide as a lake...and it's teaming with hippos, crocodiles and animals drinking along the banks of the river.

A comfortable cruise along the river at sunset with a couple of cold drinks and snacks, and some hippo spotting along the way! A great day to wind down from a busy day sightseeing.

The best would be to book once you get to the falls, look for the best cruise unless you want me to recommend the one I always jump in when am at the falls.
