Sunset Cruises (or breakfast or lunch cruises) on the Zambezi River

Sunset cruises on the Zambezi River are surely one of the classic activities of Victoria Falls. Though the sunset is a very romantic time to be on the river, the larger boats are quite big (well over 100 people), making it quite the sociable experience. If you prefer, you can also opt to take a morning or lunchtime cruise (including lunch).

For example, the African Queen (on the Zambian side) is a triple deck, 70 ft catamaran. It is furnished with Rhodesian teak, beech wood and brass finishes. It takes 110 passengers and serves drinks and snacks. A more exclusive experience would be to book a place (for a supplement) on the Captain’s Deck which takes only 12 people.

If you like the idea of a smaller boat, consider the sunset river safaris instead – see below.

River safaris

Sunset River cruises The river safari, in a much smaller boat, is a more intimate alternative to the larger sunset boat cruises. It’s also a great way to explore the river as these jet propelled boats can operate in water as shallow as 20cm. As a result, the operational range is substantially greater than any other boat, allowing it to cross the ‘rough terrain’ of the river and giving them access to places where the larger boats cannot go. Elephant, hippo and wonderful birds are the main wildlife attractions and the views and sunsets are highlights.

You choose between three river trips at breakfast, lunch or sunset.

Note: A $10 river usage fee is payable in addition to the price given above.

Please Note: We only book our day excursions and experiences as part of a tailor-made trip, not as standalone excursions.
