Luxury Deck Sunset CruiseMost Popular
At the end of the day, the Zambezi Explorer sails upstream to celebrate the setting African sun. Enjoy our range of cocktails served with an accompaniment of delectable hors d’ oeuvres.
Signature Deck Sunset Cruise
The ‘Signature Deck’ is the uppermost level of the Zambezi Explorer and it is pure extravagance with gourmet hors d’oeuvres and premium beverages served from a private bar.
Watch a Zambezi River sunset on a cocktail cruise that's timed to see wildlife gathering by the riverbanks at dusk. Door-to-door transport from Victoria Falls hotels ensures a smooth experience from beginning to end, and the optional upgrade features top-deck seating, gourmet snacks, and premium drinks throughout the cruise.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel on the Zimbabwe side of Victoria Falls, then travel to the edge of the Zambezi River to board spacious river boat. Grab a drink and a snack from the bar as the setting sun illuminates the surrounding countryside, and watch for animals drinking at the edge of the water. It’s common to spot hippos, giraffes, crocodiles, zebras, and many species of birds, with light that’s great for photography or just enjoying the view. You’ll see the first stars appear over the Zambezi River by the end of the cruise, and finish the night with drop-off at your original departure point.
