Above the Falls - Sunset Cruise

Relax and Enjoy our African Sunsets from our Up Market Cruise Boats….

“A river of enchantment and magical colors bursting in the sky creating nature’s own masterpiece”, is the only way to describe the African Sunset on the Mighty Zambezi.

Cruise along the banks of the river, and view the spectacular scenery that is nature’s own sanctuary, and home to the “laughing hippos”, the “singing birds” and the “snapping crocodiles”, as you sip on your drink and indulge on mouthwatering snacks.

Enjoy the hospitality of our professional guide and Captain as you relax and enjoy the delicious snacks and chilled refreshments. See the “smoke that thunders” as you gently cruise the upper Zambezi River. Enjoy the myths and legends as our guide shares stories of the local tribes. 

Experience the Zambezi River as David Livingstone did and travel through waters once journeyed by him on his way to the Victoria Falls.
Observe the aquatic bird life and other resident or migratory species.

You may be fortunate enough to witness the great African elephant swimming from island to island, grazing or dusting themselves on the riverbanks.

The Zambezi sunset is a highlight of the trip and captivates your magical experience on the Zambezi River.
