"Zambezi Close Up"

Based at Victoria Falls Hotel on 26 Aug 2018
"The only slightly less-than-optimal thing about this cruise was the fact that if you don't get in the first half of the queue at the boat, then you don't get a seat next to the edge of the boat. If you don't know the people who did, you can't exactly lean across them to get a decent view. That said, it proved perfectly possible to find a gap at the rails at which one could stand and get a perfect view, although one did have to keep hopping back to the table get the very nice snacks.

However, once posted in the right place, the trip was wonderful. Our captain (Ephraim?) and steward (Dixon) were extremely well-informed about local history, wildlife, climatic conditions, traditions - all sorts of interesting things. Whatever one asked, one of the two could answer it. We saw elephant, crocodile and hippo and several birds, one of which was the apparently rarely sighted African Finfoot. The sunset was pure magic...

All the arrangements were smooth and punctual. A most enjoyable afternoon and evening." Read more about this whole safari

"Booze cruise!!"

Based at Ilala Lodge on 10 Oct 2016
"Slightly disappointed as we were expecting to cruise slightly further and see a bit more of the river and unfortunately on that particular night not much of a sunset.

The boat was lovely, and the crew excellent and we did still enjoy it but the emphasis seemed to be on the drinking rather than the scenery.

Maybe just spoiled after our cruises in Chobe." Read more about this whole safari
