What people are saying about Victoria Falls Town, Zimbabwe

We have enjoyed every minute since we stepped onto the boat, the atmosphere, the vibe, the people, the food and drinks were just out of this world and just seeing the beautiful sunset was truly amazing

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.

Cruise was well coordinated and we saw a variety of wildlife on board. Quick bites were decent, overall a pleasant ride and lovely sunset to top off the Zim experience.

Pick was straight forward, friendly staff and a wonderful evening with great views and food! Couldn’t recommend enough!
