Sunset Cruise - Luxury Deck of the Zambezi Explorer

An unforgettable Sunset Cruise is a must-do during a Trip To Victoria Falls, and Pure Africa's flagship Zambezi Explorer's two exquisitely furnished "Luxury Decks" are the perfect choice for this. With Ndebele-patterned seats, roomy lounge seating, and views through sun-bleached UV-protected drapes that subtly block the afternoon breeze, the space has been completely renovated

Before returning to the Pure Africa Waterfront, you'll be treated to the most spectacular sunset, an African tradition.

Zambezi Explorer Signature Deck: Sunset Cruise

The most opulent option for your Sunset Cruise is our Zambezi Explorer's "Signature Deck." The top "Signature Deck" Uniquely designed" refinement encourages visitors to unwind on the deep-set couches that echo the natural hues and river blues of the surrounds.

Enjoy exquisite canapes, attentive service, and unobstructed views from the 6m height. Craft beer, artisanal spirits, and a selection of our Pure Africa wines are also offered everywhere. Return to the Pure Africa Waterfront as the sun sets.

The Kalunda, the smallest cruise ship operated by Pure Africa, can be reserved for a private sunset cruise.

The Experience

Visitors are picked up from their accommodation and driven to the Zambezi Explorer jetty location. After everyone has boarded, the captain starts the scarcely audible engines and begins to sail the ship around the islands in the upper Zambezi River. The cruise ship, like other cruise companies, keeps a good 4 km (2.49 miles) away from the actual fall.

What Will You See ?

It makes sense that such a sizable body of water would draw a wide variety of fauna from the frequently dry interior. Huge hippo pods can be found in the river, where they have grown accustomed to the excursions and can approach them without risk. It's common to observe the creepier-looking crocodiles lazing on the banks or gliding through and the hippos. The most common animals you will see are Elephants, waterbuck, baboons and monkeys, along with a wide variety of birdlife.

What to carry with you ?
