Customer Reviews

We had beautiful experience on the Zambezi River with River safari boat . Saw lots of Hippos Crocks monkeys different type of birds. Everything was so fine the food was great in the boat operator are the best. Thanks again sincerely. Yehuda and Chris - Yehuda Yacoby

This 2 hour flip back & forth across the Zambezi was the highlight of our visit to Vic Falls. From the moment, literally, that we stepped onto the boat we were looked after by our 'pilot' and his mate. The drinks were flowing and the snacks that we were offered on the small island were delicious. This experience is great value for money. We had a ball ! - Peter Mundell # 3509135

Was first activity in Zambia. Excellent and informative boat operators. Felt close to the water and therefore the animals. Great stop for snacks at sundown and all safety concerns abated. Excellent intro to Africa and highly recommended early on your trip! Graeme and Dini - Graeme Membrey

thrilling awesome adventure , i loved the moment we stop for some snacks by the island. this is a place to be also the guide wow he had lots of information - BELLA M

We thoroughly enjoyed our River Safari. At time it was very invigorating, especially when we went through the rapids. We managed to get close to the Hippos and other animals on the river banks. The nibbles and drinks break on a small island in the river was great and you felt part of the surrounds. Our guides were very knowledgeable and informative. I would say that it might be useful to have some waterproofs available. I really great trip. - Robert Humphries
