Customer Reviews

We had a great time on the African Queen Sunset Cruise. Luckily for us, the terminal was right next to our Lodge/Hotel, so we could walk to it in under 5 minutes (we could also walk back but were told to keep an eye out for Elephants that could be on the road in the evening !). We arrived at the terminal to be greeted by a very friendly Daphne who explained how it all worked and escorted us to the African Queen. We boarded and were shown to our seats and were then very well looked after by one of the hostesses - Florence, who kept us supplied with drinks (pretty much whatever you wanted and as much as you liked) and a stream of delicious nibbles. On the 2 hour cruise, we were told all about the local wildlife and the Zambezi river. We saw Hippos, Crocodile, Elephants and a number of different bird species. And of course, we saw the sunset over the river - a beautiful vivid red. This was an excellent trip and well worth the money - highly recommended. - Kevin Collins

We had a amazing time on the African Queen. We had excellent service from the staff. An unforgettable experience. I will recommend it to all. - Albert Geldenhuys

Really, really enjoyed ourselves on this trip. Taken by minibus from our hotel direct to the boat (African Queen), facilities at landing stage excellent. Staff really friendly and well turned out. Standard of service excellent. All drinks are included in the price (as much as you want) and the "snacks and nibbles" were actually quite substantial. Decor on board is lovely with wood panelling and comfy seating positioned so that you can see the wildlife along the river and river bank well. Got to see crocodile, hippo and elephant as well as numerous birds. Watching the sunset over the Zambezi is quite spectacular. Thoroughly recommend this trip and although it does seem expensive when booking in the UK, it is good value for money. - Martin Concannon

We had a great trip. The waiter was very attentive and welcoming and we enjoyed the commentary of the history and geography of the area. The boat was very comfortable and we enjoyed the cool drinks. The snacks were OK. It was a very relaxing trip and a great way to unwind. Thank you Susan Gosling - Susan Gosling

Cruise very enjoyable and great sightings of hippo. The return trip felt a bit rushed - Thilo Schindler
