Overview
Watch a Zambezi River sunset from a cocktail cruise that is timed for you to see wildlife gathering by the riverbanks at dusk. Door-to-door transport from Victoria Falls hotels ensures a relaxing experience from beginning to end. An optional upgrade offers top-deck seating, gourmet snacks, and premium drinks throughout the cruise.
Highlights
  • Cruise the Zambezi River at sunset, the ideal time to see active wildlife
  • Experience cooler temperatures in the early evening 
  • Enjoy included appetizers and drinks or upgrade to gourmet service
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at Victoria Falls hotels
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel on the Zimbabwe side of Victoria Falls, and then travel to the edge of the Zambezi River to board a spacious riverboat. 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 in soft 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.

We took the sunset cruise and selected the Signature (top deck) option for the trip. The start of our trip was very eventful as a thunderstorm happened as we boarded the boat - it was great to get an umbrella to keep some of the rain off of us. The boat cruise itself was very

The boats are quite spacious even though there were quite a few people. We never felt cramped. There was a free open bar and nice snacks. The boat ride wasn’t rough at all so it was a very relaxing trip. Our captain was hilarious and we got to see lots of hippos and a variety of
