This is possibly the best way to enjoy an authentic African sunset at Vic Falls. The snacks were good and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Well worth the experience!

We just loved our dinner cruise on the Zambezi Explorer! It was the most perfect evening, gently cruising along the magnificent Zambezi River. While sipping the obligatory G&T, we saw hippos wallowing in the shallows, and could see the 'smoke' rising from the Victoria Falls...More

Mine just turned 6 and 8. They loved it. Compare it with going to dinner with them. If they can handle that, they can handle the cruise. There are bathrooms on board. Lots to see but no entertainment.
