What people are saying about Victoria Falls Town, Zimbabwe

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

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.
