Dinner Cruise on the Zambezi River
This Zambezi River sunset cruise combines a sunset safari with a romantic dinner on the water. Views of animals wading in the river at sunset pair with fresh Zambezi-style cuisine and unlimited drinks—perfect for winding down and beginning your evening in luxury. A limited number of tables makes for more intimate dinner parties and better viewing opportunities from the open-sided boat.
What to Expect
Your evening begins with pickup from your Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe hotel. After a short drive, arrive at the boat put-in to begin your Zimbabwe Falls dinner cruise.

Choose your seat at one of a limited number of tables. Candles and flowers set the scene for gourmet Zambezi-style cuisine, freshly prepared by an onboard chef. Enjoy sunset views from the open-sided boat while you dine, and keep your camera close by to capture the incredible views.

This tour doubles as a Zambezi River safari with opportunities to sight animals like hippos, elephants, and crocodiles.

Once the sun fully sets, your tour concludes with hotel drop-off.
