Customer Reviews

We were looking for a sunset cruise on the Zambezi during our trip to Victoria Falls. We came across the River Safari. It was different than the standard large, slow boats that you find. The boat could only hold around 12 people. We were the only two passengers on this particular trip. Mike and Michael were outstanding guides on this trip. Their knowledge of the river and the birds/animals was impeccable. They were happy to answer all our questions and stop in the places where we thought we saw things. As the sun started to set, they picked a perfect spot on an island to view the sunset, have drink or two, and eat great snacks. Because we were staying at a hotel on the river, at the end of the cruise, we were dropped at a dock in front of our hotel. Make no mistake, Zambia is open for tourism. This is a must do if you travel to the area. - Burnett

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

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

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
