Zambezi River Cruise

A Zambezi River Cruise is arguably one of the best ways on earth to soak in the magnificence of this iconic river and its surrounds.

Victoria Falls River Lodge, the first private game lodge to be set in the Zambezi National Park, is situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, so close the Victoria Falls one can see the spray in the distance!

Uninterrupted panoramic views of African sunsets and exceptional wildlife viewing make this uniquely located lodge the ideal point from which to explore Victoria Falls by combining the safari experience with one of the world’s most famous tourist destinations, The Victoria Falls.

Our trained Field Guides offer guests several safari options.

A choice of two of the following game activities is included in our accommodation rate:

  • Sunrise / Sunset River Cruise and
  • Morning / Afternoon Game Drive

Sunrise Zambezi River Cruise

Watch – from the comfort of Victoria Falls River Lodge’s private river cruiser – as the world awakes and the sun’s first rays skip and dance across the shimmering surface of the mighty Zambezi. A truly revitalising way to start any day!

Sunset Zambezi River Cruise

For the not-so-early-birds: sit back and let the gentle ebb and flow of the Zambezi lull and relax you. Join in on Mother Nature’s Happiest Hour by sipping on a sun-downer in whilst viewing her creatures, big and small, coming to the water’s edge to lap at its liquid life under molten skies.
