Customer Reviews

I had good experience with The Sunset River Safari Cruise. The guides were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Managed to spot some animals in actions and most importantly, a very beautiful sunset. - Roger


Great fun! You get up and close to animals - elephants, hippos, crocodiles, giraffes and others. Much better for wildlife viewing than one of the big ships, however not quite as social. You stop on a small island for snacks and drinks as the sun sets. Magical! As we finished, one person on our boat said it was only his first day in Africa and it was already the best vacation of his life! - Van Hooker


Amazing experience! We saw elephants in the water, hippos, beautiful sunset. The crew was incredibly nice and diligent. Tons of drinks and nice picnic. - Emilia D.


Great afternoon and sunset drive for my Mom's 60th birthday. The team was excellent and really did everything to make us feel comfortable. There was plenty of drinks and food and we got very nice close-ups of hippos, crocodiles and various birds. - JAN B.


We had a wonderful trip on the Boat Safari. The guide was great and took us up close and personal with all the wildlife! The snack were a welcome treat while watching the sunset. Would definitely do it again and recommend it as a relaxing evening outing in a small group. Thanks! - Robert Segeritz
