Amazing experience and the pick up was great from the hotel! Great Zambezi River cruise
Went on January 10th, low season after Xmas and New Year holidays so explained why there were lots of boats out on the river but few people on each. Lots of competition when times are hard there. However, picked up on time and driven down to launch site. Obligatory dance group struck up with singing and dancing as soon as we arrived so had to give a tip before getting on. There were about 20 of us altogether from different countries and it was a pleasant evening with drinks and nibbles and good service. The captain was very professional with his health and safety talk before we started. There was a young chap dressed up as a native with spear etc who unfortunately took a fancy to us and particularly seemed to want to practise his English on us! We felt sorry for him but he did become a little intrusive. We were quite glad when he went over to other groups but he did keep returning to us! We saw opposed, crocs, elephants coming down to the river to drink, kingfishers, lots of birds. We were two and a half km away from Vic Falls and could see the mist. Watched the sun go down and it was a really lovely experience. Some boats do full dinner cruises and in retrospect wished we had chosen to do that. Would recommend this tour- value for money, good transport too.
Beautiful river cruise. Free drinks. Only complaint is that the appetizers served didn't suit my tastes.
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.
Very beautiful short cruise with ample variety and qunantity of drinks.
But sorry we have little wild animals recrnyly around us.
Yes the sunset was nice But I thought we would travel further along the river instead of doing a short circuit route
