It was splendid. My son really enjoyed the ride
Dailes_N, Feb 2023
We managed to spot a buffalo, rhino, crocodiles and elephants in certain places. It was raining but we still had a lovely time
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you so much for the great review Dailes, we are glad you had a splendid time, and your son had a wonderful time.
Evening afloat
Bruce_W, Jan 2023
Sadly we had no sunset to enrich our time on the river. Saw hippos and birds. Drinks were good and canapés simple. Transportation included from hotel
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you for the review, Bruce, rainy season indeed has some of its disadvantages and we are sorry the weather got jealous.
Where were the cocktails?!
Grant_H, Oct 2022
The sunset cruise itself is a must do, the boat is luxurious, the team were lovely. However we paid for the signature deck and waited 40mins for a cocktail and what arrived was not what was ordered. We are on honeymoon and chose the signature deck for the cocktails. It was disappointing.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you so much for the valued feedback, Grant. Our sincere apologies for the delayed service and disappointing cocktails. We will investigate what happened on the day and as we always try to ensure we have enough cocktails on the Signature Deck.

Really wonderful evening on the Zambezi.
Preiya_H, Oct 2022
Fantastic boat, the upper deck gives wonderful panoramic views. The crew were all brilliant, helpful, professional and courteous. The food was great, although I think some more snacks and vegetarian options would be ideal (take it it a 6-star). The only niggle I had was that I was asked to move my chair by a member of the crew (they were asked by a passenger) to about 5 feet away from my wife (we were celebrating our wedding anniversary). Seeing as everyone were swiftly on their feet taking pictures, I found this ironic, and so very quickly moved my seat back to be next to my wife. Why should I move and be upset, to please someone else who could simply move elsewhere if 5% of the view was a little obscured. Frankly they should have sat nearer the front! So, perhaps some better seating arrangements might be in order.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you so much for the valued review Preiya. We are so glad you had a fantastic time with us and our sincere apologies for the small niggle you had. we are definitely looking into the seating arrangements.
Wonderful way to spend an evening

Christie B, Sept 2017
My wife and I did the Signature Lounge option - one which is expensive for us South Africans. We decided on this after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and we are definitely not sorry we did so. We were collected from our hotel and welcomed by friendly assistants with a warm handcloth and some iced tea. On deck we were treated to canepes and drinks included in the price while sitting in the lounge or standing on the deck. The staff were so helpful and the host very witty without being foreward. We saw a variety of animals from the boat giraffe, crocodiles, zebra, hippo and some birds. The cherry on top was the sunset - which allowed us to take as many phtos of the setting sun at various stages. After 2 and a half hours we docked and were transported to our hotel, taking along some wonderful memories of a wonderful trip.
