Dinner Cruise on the Zambezi River, Victoria Falls

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    A Victoria Falls dinner cruise is a fantastic dining option while on safari in Victoria Falls. Enjoy a Zambezi style gourmet dinner above the Victoria Falls. The Victoria Falls dinner cruise serves a four course meal that includes drinks (wines, local beers, coffee) delicious starters, soup, main course and dessert.

    The dinner cruise departs from the Pure Africa Waterfront (Victoria Falls Zimbabwe side) and initially cruises downstream towards the Victoria Falls. Here you can get a glimpse of the spray from the falls. You will then cruise upstream to catch the sun before it sinks into the Zambezi River. You are treated to a beautiful Zambezi River sunset. As the sun goes down you are served the first course of your dinner. You will continue to cruise upstream as you enjoy the warm African evening and you are served your delicious dinner. All the meals served have been freshly prepared on board by the experienced chefs. The dinner cruise is an enjoyable and relaxing way to spend your evening in Victoria Falls. It truly is a luxury safari on water.

    The Dinner cruise takes place on board either of 2 luxurious boats named Zambezi Reflections and Ma Robert. These boats are dedicated floating restaurants and offer the ultimate river dining experience. A dinner cruse is great value for money as it combines a sunset cruise with a four course dinner. A standard sunset cruise needs to dock in the evening by 6pm. However a Victoria Falls dinner cruise allows you the luxury to float on the Zambezi River while you enjoy a delicious meal until 8pm.

    Had an awesome 4 course fine dining meal. Bar service was exceptional. Sunset and animal viewing was also spot on. Thanks to the fantastic staff who made this tour one of the best dinners we’ve had in Africa.

    Great way to spend our first night in Vic Falls! Dinner was great and the scenery was amazing. Got up close to some hippos and saw several crocodiles. Just a great and relaxing river cruise. OH, and the sunset was the highlight!

    We were in Zimbabwe so I cannot comment but you may be able to do a simular cruise from Zambia to save the hastle. If you cross you need a visa as well so that is another $55 single entry. That makes it an expensive dinner... More

    We saw hippos. To be on the Zambezi river at sunset is a beautiful experience; and the food on the cruise was good. Any wildlife spotted is a bonus. Strongly recommend it
