We cruised along the Zambezi river and saw elephants, hippos and crocodile. The crew made us took our time taking pictures. They also provided bottomless drinks which was great. They also pick you up and drop you off your lodge.

We are a group of 18 and had our own boat. They served unlimited wine and liquor. Also some snacks. The views are spectacular especially the sunset. The staff was very friendly and informative.
