Customer Reviews

We had a briliant river safari cruise: specially the mornig cruise was greate. nice food, everything was great.. the evenig cruise was a bit too short, but nice with the sundowner we had seen. i would like yto make the afternoon cruis 1/2 hour morge (earlier) becaus i think more animals are a bith further on near the river. any how it was fine too, and we enyoyed them both very much - ilona piris

A little disappointing from start to finish. As it was winter and early morning they provided blankets to only a few people (my wife and I not being one of them) as they didn’t have enough for all. We were seated at the back and the views of animals were being shown to the people at the front of the boat. I had a feeling they hoped they would get better tips from them! On the brochure it mentions going over some rapids. This does not happen. The morning tea was set out nicely and plenty of sandwiches (not muffins) for all. - Darren Roberts

We are 4 adults who very much enjoyed the Zambezi Morning River Cruise. We had had a very hectic itinerary prior to that, so it was wonderful to have an easy morning just enjoying the scenery. Our guides were wonderful and helped us spot a lot of birds, hippo, croc, etc. and the stop on the island for morning snacks was well done and greatly appreciated. Very nice way to spend a morning. - Linda Hambleton

excellent cruise - Andrew Brown

Great experience in a beautiful setting. Saw elephants, hippos, crocodiles and lots of birds. The guys on the boat were excellent and the refreshments were lovely too. - Steven Ware
