"Zambezi Explorer River Cruise review"

Based at Victoria Falls Hotel on 3 Sep 2023
"This was absolutely fabulous. Better than I thought.

It was a luxurious boat and so relaxing to be on. We were on the upper deck which I recommend. Comfy rattan seats. It’s not overcrowded even though it was full.

The food was very good, and complementary drinks and cocktails. The sunset was stunning and we saw elephants in the water.

We had to cancel our dinner reservations that evening as so full." Read more about this whole safari

"Zambezi Explorer River Cruizabse review"

Based at Victoria Falls Hotel on 18 Nov 2018
"Was terrific, lack of animals was a little disappointing, but I had just left Kenya!!!!

Some information given was a little off, hippos can stay underwater for more than 2 minutes, but otherwise a great evening." Read more about this whole safari

"Very Comfortable enjoyable cruise"

Based at Victoria Falls Hotel on 16 Oct 2018
"We were picked up promptly from the hotel and then went to a few other hotels to pick other people up. We really enjoyed the cruise and found the staff very friendly and helpful. When we arrived at the boat there were some African dancers there to welcome us, which was a nice touch. The captain was very knowledgeable and navigated his way along the river to enable us to see as much as possible. It was a lovely evening with four people sharing each table and we had nice comfortable cushioned seats. The people sharing our table were all very nice and interested in seeing the wildlife.

There were probably around 26 people on the cruise, so we had lots of space and it was easy to move around to take photos. Some of the other boats we saw appeared cramped, which was what we had read prior to booking this. The hot and cold snack food was plentiful, so much so, we ended up not needing dinner that night. The snacks were served to each table by the staff.

There was a cocktail menu or you could have spirits, wines or beer. When you wanted another one you just order it with one of the waiters. We saw quite a few elephants and hippo’s and of course a fabulous sunset. Once we disembarked the bus took us back to the hotel.

We were pleased we had booked the Zambezi Royal Sun Downer Cruise, we really enjoyed it." Read more about this whole safari
