What You Can Expect

Sunset Zambezi River Cruise with Transport from Victoria Falls

See the sun go down over the Zambezi River!

Leave your Victoria Falls town hotel and travel to the nearby banks of the Zambezi River, a famous stretch of water that snakes its way through the savannah plains and swamplands of six different countries on route to the Indian Ocean.

At the water’s edge, hop aboard your sightseeing boat and take a seat on deck, enjoying a selection of finger snacks, such as chips and nuts, as well as a drink from the onboard bar. One glass of Champagne is included, and all other drinks – beer, wine and soft drinks – are unlimited!

With drink in hand, settle back and gaze out at the river to take stock of the rich wildlife floating around you. Have your camera ready to capture sights of hippos wallowing in the shallows and crocodiles snaking along the water’s edge; the colorful birdlife is camera worthy, too.

As the sun goes down, many of the land-based wildlife of Victoria Falls National Park head down to the river to drink, bathe and graze. Look out for Cape buffalo and giraffes, as well as the herds of elephants that often cross the river around sunset.

After three hours cruising up and down a stretch of the Zambezi River, seeing the sunset sights, return to the riverbank and step back onto dry land. Your experience then finishes with a hotel drop-off in Victoria Falls town.

Wonderful views of hippos at play. Sunset beautiful.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2014

Beautiful river cruise. Free drinks. Only complaint is that the appetizers served didn't suit my tastes.

4 star rating: Recommended May 2014

The only reason for not getting 5 stars was because of the age of the boat but having said that, they were all the same. The content of the tour was fantastic. Drinks were not in short supply, the finger food was good but the hippos and the sunset were unforgettable. I could post my own photo but it would be identical to the one shown. Very enjoyable.

4 star rating: Recommended May 2014

But sorry we have little wild animals recrnyly around us.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this May 2015

Yes the sunset was nice But I thought we would travel further along the river instead of doing a short circuit route
