Going on a sunset cruise on the Zambezi is an absolute must when you visit Victoria Falls. The beauty of the luscious bush and vast Zambezi River is such a peaceful experience. Not only do you get to take in the sights, but during a sunset cruise, you most certainly will see the river regulars such as the hippo, crocodile and elephants, to name a few. Sunset is the time when a lot of the animals converge for their last drink of the day.

There are a number of cruise boats options that do sunset cruises in Zambia; the African Queen and African Princess, are amongst the most popular vessels. They are comfortable luxury boats that set off from the Royal Landing jetty at 16h00 during winter and 16h30 in the summer months. Transfers are provided from the Day Activity Centre to the jetty.

While you sip on delicious cocktails and freshly made snacks, the boats will take you around the different islands on the Zambezi. The cruise boats do not go closer than 4km from the edge of the Victoria Falls but you will be able to see the rising spray from the safety of the vessel. The duration of a single trip is about 2 hours.

From the David Livingstone Safari Lodge & Spa comes a newer cruise vessel called the Lady Livingstone. Also a luxury cruise boat, it is larger than the African Queen or the African Princess. The Lady Livingstone takes you along the Zambezi River at the edge of the Mosi oa Tunya National Park while you enjoy freshly baked snacks and drinks which are included in the price. An experienced guide accompanies each cruise and has good knowledge on the wildlife and local history of the area.

What you will need to bring
• Camera
• Sunglasses
• US$10 National Park fees to be paid on entry

Children 3 - 12 years pay approximately 50% of the adult rate.

Fantastic Itinerary
by Graham & Janet (United Kingdom)
Dear Boo
We would like to offer our thanks for sorting a fantastic itinerary for our all too short visit to Vic Falls. The cruise on the Zambesi at sunset was a delight and the helicopter flight breathtaking! The pick ups were punctual and staff members were all very smiley, friendly, helpful and good company. The whole experience of the actual Falls and the town itself was outstanding.
We will return! Your company will be our first port of call. Many thanks for a very efficient service.
Best wishes
