Victoria Falls Sunset Cruise

Imagine cruising freely between 2 countries, 2 National Parks, and just 2 kilometers away from the largest waterfall in the world. It’s twice the thrill, twice the excitement and double the adventure, all for the price of one. The only question is, why would you have to imagine it though when you can simply experience it by going on an amazing Victoria Falls Sunset Cruise on the Zambezi River?

You get the amazing opportunity of cruising between Zambia and Zimbabwe, two beautiful countries, and between two National Parks, the Zambezi National Park and the Mosi Oa Tunya National Park. From the comfort of your boat, you will see the rising smoke of Victoria Falls and you will catch a glimpse of the rainbow that forms as the sun rays penetrate through the rising spray of water.
