A sunset cruise on the Zambezi River is one of the most unforgettable safari activities available.
A Zambezi sunset cruise is the perfect cherry on top of a luxury African safari. It provides guests with the opportunity to coast the fourth longest river on the continent during the most spectacular time of the day. African sunsets are legendary amongst visitors, and a sunset cruise offers one of the best occasions to enjoy the late afternoon embers setting the bush afire with its warm beauty.
The Zambezi River swells with its prolific bird- and wildlife. Passengers aboard the safari boat will typically be spoiled with sightings of hippos, crocodiles, elephants and giraffes. Flights of open-billed storks, African finfoot, sacred ibises and yellow-billed stork color the riverbanks.
The river’s most striking feature, however, is the majestic Victoria Falls. The ‘Smoke that Thunders’ remains omnipresent during the cruise, sending sails of frothy mists upriver. A typical Zambezi sunset cruise lasts approximately two to three hours. A variety of drinks are available to guests, from soft drinks and beer to local spirits and wine.
