Sip G&Ts on a Sunset Cruise above Victoria Falls

A sunset cruise above the Victoria Falls is one of the most iconic activities to add to your 2020 safari bucket list. The African Cruise Company has two vessels; the African Queen and the smaller, but equally luxurious African Princess. Both offer the combination of old world charm and magnificent river views.

The sunset cruise is without a doubt our most popular option and a great opportunity to slow down and enjoy the beauty of the river. There’s also a great chance of seeing hippo, crocodiles, elephant and other antelope along the river bank.

Have breakfast on a river island near Victoria Falls

Our river safaris explore the meandering Zambezi River, above the Victoria Falls. The early morning cruise offers fantastic game viewing and great photographic opportunities. The birdlife is exceptional and your guide will help to point out important sightings.

Half way, you’ll stop for a light breakfast and hot refreshments. There’s a good possibility of seeing elephants and hippo in the river, as well as white rhino, buffalo, giraffe and smaller antelope on the banks.

Get soaked by the spray from the Smoke That Thunders

Getting wet under the spray rising from the Victoria Falls is a rite of passage for anyone visiting the Mosi-oa-Tunya, the Smoke That Thunders. Enjoy a guided tour of the Victoria Falls as part of our Ticket To Adventure Package or our 3 Day Victoria Falls Activity Package.
