This cruise exceeded my expectations in that I wasn't expecting food and drinks to be included in the price! I must have missed this when I booked! All the staff were very friendly and welcoming and very knowledgeable of the river wildlife. We were able to get pretty close to some of the animals so I was able to get... More

Indeed , it fulfilled its name- sunset cruise. I managed to capture splendid photo of the sun setting over the Zambezi river. The cruise was calm and relaxing. The crew was lovely and interactive. The snack and bar service was very good as well . Not forgetting the energetic and lovely traditional dancers and chanters who set the mood for... More

Pro: a smaller boat (we were a group of 23) can come close to hippos and crocodiles. And there were not other tourists. Contra: both drinks and snack were so-so

You cannot come to Vic Falls and not do a sunset cruise on the mighty Zambezi river. This was one of the highlights of my stay at the Vic Falls. The staff are professional and the drinks and eats are also lovely. This a must in Vic Falls!

At $40 this cruise seemed expensive but it included hotel pickup, 2 hours on the Zambezi ,snacks and continuous free drinks. We saw lots of birds and hippos. Well worth the money!

This was my first activity in Victoria Falls and a very pleasant one too. We were greeted by authentic African live music and dance as we boarded the boat, it set the scene perfectly. Plenty of wildlife on the Zambezi river with Hippos stealing the show. An abundance of great food and drink served on the journey, an absolute must... More

I had boat tour at different places of the World. This is in the first three. Sunset tour is a must do when you are in Victoria Falls. It is romantic, full of surprises and worth the time and the money you will spend.

We booked a sunset cruise for our first evening at Victoria Falls and did we hit the jackpot! We were lucky enough to watch a herd of elephants cross the river - amazing!

While this was not our best Zambezi cruise experience, it was pretty good all the same and was a very relaxing and enjoyable late afternoon cruise. It is disappointing to see how much the river cruise boat traffic has increased exponentially since our last cruise end-2005. Clearly tourism has boomed in Zimbabwe (good for them) and there are many more... More
