Zambezi Royal Cruise
Intimate luxury cruises on the Zambezi River
The luxurious, 28-seater single level cruise boat offers a unique and intimate way to view the Zambezi River. The boat is the first of its kind, custom built to maximize comfort, style, practicality and service. (By manufacturing standards, the boat is actually built to accommodate 60 passengers, but in order to cater for the luxury furnishings, and to allow for ample spaciousness, the design has been customized to accommodate just 28).
