What people are saying about Victoria Falls Town, Zimbabwe

An incredible evening being looked after by the crew at pure Africa. The food was delectable. If you are in Victoria Falls this cruise is a MUST! Not to mention the beauty of cruising down the Zambezi with the potential of spotting a few animals. This cruise is a fantastic way to spend the afternoon with loved ones.

It was sensational, Prince Tee was a great great guide - please keep treating him well as I’m sure you are! We were collected and dropped off with no issues, and had an enjoyable open top ride in the car before exploring the park

Great cruise! Fully recommend. Just double check with your hotel to make sure the transfer bus is booked. We booked a few hours before and asked our hotel to check just in case. We’re glad we did.

Food was pretty good, views were very beautiful. Staff were also super nice and maybe did a great job. Overall it was better than simply going to the falls when you are here.

Fantastic food and scenery. A privilege to experience.
