We did the captain cabin and it was a very nice and relaxing experience. We were given information on the animals and good food and drinks in a very personal way because it was only 3 of us.

The cruise started at 4.30. It was a three decker boat. We stayed at the second deck. They served free drinks and snacks. Along the river bank you saw hippos, elephants, birds, crocodiles. In the return trip, you saw the beautiful sunset scene. Very relaxing...More

This is one of the slower activities at Vic Falls and totally worth it. Watching the African sunset, whilst sipping on cocktails (Great service from Martha) and watching the wildlife on the banks on the Zambezi - doesn't get much better than that. Good value...More

The cruise is actually a smooth glide on the Zambezi River where you enjoy stunning landscapes, monkeys on the banks and hippopotamuses in the water. The sunset is breathtaking. In meantime you can enjoy some drinks from the free bar, served by kind waiters. Recommended!

A two hour trip worth the time. You will see numerous animals, some up close, on a pleasant voyage. Food may not be plentiful, but it is not advertised as a feast, so enjoy the late afternoon trip, and the animals.
