Let your mind drift

Enjoy a change of pace and scenery with a meandering cruise along the Zambezi River, one of Africa’s most famous waterways. As you drift along, you’ll have sublime water-based game viewing, seeing countless bird species and thirty animals coming down to drink.

Ripples on the surface indicate the presence of hippo and crocodile, and there are unbeatable photographic opportunities around every bend in the river.

The peace of the river may be disturbed by the chortle of hippo, the cry of the fish eagle, or even the sight of a herd of elephants crossing to feed on an island.

Our aluminium and fibre-glass pontoon boats have a 60-horsepower motor for cruising against the current, we always serve either morning tea and coffee or sundowners – best enjoyed as the sun appears to sink into the river, and flocks of ibis and egret pass overhead on their way to roost for the night.

Safety is always our first priority, and our modern, well-maintained boats are fully equipped with life jackets, a radio and an anchor, so you can relax and enjoy this unique experience.
