A highlight. Do not miss the opportunity to go on a Sunset Cruise when in Victoria Fall. We went with Batoka. All drinks were included as well as plated savoury snacks. The barmanRobson was a gem. Once he knows your drink of choice he keeps your glass full and keep lively conversation going. Before getting onto the boat one is... More

Hey, go down to the river, and up to the falls, then get back in the car and go to the Zambezi Gorge Swing and zip line. Crazy scary but fun.

Had a wonderful experience on this cruise. Traveling solo, I met some interesting folks. We encountered Hippos, birds, crocs and elephants. The sunset was stunning. I fully recommend this trip even if you have been on Safari and seen lots of wildlife - it always fun to encounter them in their natural habitat.

We loved watching the sunset on the Zambezi River on this cruise. The staff was knowledgeable and very friendly. They provided all we could drink along with several appetizers on the trip. Some were not my favorite, but it was a good assortment. We had talked to other who saw elephants on this trip, but we did not. What we... More

To see the river at its best do try an evening or dining cruise, we tried the dining cruise and the boat was about a quarter full. Food was good not excellent but more than adequate, the sunset was to die for and managed to get a few cracking photos.

If you have not yet been on safari, this cruise will be interesting for the small amount of wildlife you will see--hippos, crocs, and maybe an elephant. If you have been on safari, it may be a bit disappointing. We did enjoy the sunset and seeing the river close up (our other experience was a helicopter ride). We did the... More

On our trip to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, we cruised down the Zambezi during sunset. It was amazing. We saw hippos, birds AND 4 elephants cross pushing a baby in the middle. Like submarines with their trunks up. It was a breathtaking site!
