This has to be one of my favourite activities in Vic Falls, I would definitely recommend paying that little bit more and going onto the Signature lounge deck which is at the top. It's just the perfect way to end a busy day and enjoy the mighty Zambezi rivier. The snacks are always plentiful and amazing and the service is great. Slowly chug up the beautiful river and enjoy the sunset whilst sipping a glass of wine or a G & T. I highly recommend this boat trip.

Fantastic cruise and food was excellent. Staff were very friendly, informative and helpful. Sunset was amazing and we also managed to see some elephants and hippos which added to the experience.

This was a gentle cruise during sunset that met all our expectations! Lots of appetizers, plenty of drinks - and a group of Hippos did not disappoint! We were lucky to go during the full moon, which made it even better!

This was the final activity of our trip to South Africa and Zimbabwe and most definitely the grand finale! It is so much rewarding to pay the extra 25$ for the Signature Deck as it offers free flow of drinks and just amazing views of the river. The downstairs deck is also nice but the chairs and sofas are so much more comfortable upstairs. There are also fewer people there. We were lucky that we were only 13 pax altogether, but even with a full house (even more so if the downstairs luxury deck is full) there should be enough space. You will pass many other kinds of boats on the river during this trip, and we agreed that we were really lucky to have booked the Zambesi Explorer/Signature Deck. The cruise is slow and you barely hear the sound of the engine. The staff are always fast to point out any wildlife on the banks of the river. The views of the sunset were amazing.

The drinks are great and the variety is actually too much to handle considering the fact that you cruise for two hours only. We opted for the Mojitos - yummy. The dirty version with ginger and chili is delicious, just make sure you tell them whether you want the mild, normal or "Sure, I can handle this"-version. It gets very spicy!

During the cruise you will be served a variety of different cold and warm snacks which are all delicious! Upon booking I was asked about any dietary restrictions. I was amazed at how everyone was informed about these restrictions and kept making sure that I didn't eat anything "dangerous".

We also booked dinner on the ship which is served right after the actual sunset cruise at the dock. Since we were only two couples who stayed for dinner this made for a really special atmosphere. So we didn't really care that dinner was served at the lounge tables meaning that you have to bend over while eating. The food was great. (Thank you, Mike!) Please note that after the free flow of drinks during the sunset cruise any further drink orders will be charged to your bill. But prices are really reasonable - that is if you can handle any more drinks at all at this point of time.

Having said all that, the best thing of the whole cruise was having Patience as our hostess. From the moment you step on board she is there for you 100%. She gave a brief introduction about the security measures on board and the cruise itself, always giving you the feeling that she did this just for you personally. Throughout the cruise she chatted to everyone on the deck, always having a smile on her face. And we all know that dealing with passengers can be a big challenge sometimes. Again, passengers were few so she had the resources to look after everyone. But you can just feel that she really loves her job. She is authentic, charming and has a great sense of humor. Just fantastic!

A big THANKYOU to the whole team for a wonderful evening. Originally, we were thinking about doing a helicopter flight over the Falls, but eventually decided to go on this cruise. We didn't regret it. Highly recommended!
