Sunset over the Zambezi River

Sunset Cruise on the Zambezi

Guests are collected from their hotel and taken on a sunset cruise along the mighty Zambezi River.

Cruise boats vary in size and style but generally all offer comfortable seating in safari chairs with bar service (each passenger gets three drink coupons), snacks and toilet facilities on board. The cruise boats have life jackets and rings and safety features are pointed out by the skipper.

The cruises are shaded and gently make their way upstream toward the National Park, usually accompanied by a brief talk about the river and its wildlife by your skipper. You can relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery and look out for the hippo, elephant, crocodile and amazing birdlife along the river banks.
