Dinner Cruise on the Zambezi River, Victoria Falls

62 reviews
Dine by twilight on this Zambezi River dinner cruise, which takes you down toward Victoria Falls for a good view before turning around and heading for the sunset. Enjoy a 4-course dinner with drinks as you watch the sun dip below the horizon and keep company with the intimate crew of people on board, setting this cruise apart from its larger competitors.

We booked this tour as a bit of a fill in day and while majority of it was fantastic, there were some parts that weren't so great Picked up on time, not that long of a drive until we arrived. Drinks when we arrived - service and great and friendly Out onto the jeep to take us to the elephants. Had a ranger with a rifle, although not sure how much for show this is as we had just finished a 2 week safari and they didn't have a rifle with them Found the elephants where we walked through to bush to catch up with them. They are very protective of you to ensure that you are safe at all times and try and position the elephants so that you can get pictures We took turns having our pictures taken beside the elephants and it was all structured and managed very well - so total credit to them making it seamless and easy Then we got to hand feed the elephants after a demonstration, and great that we could keep doing it until the food ran out. They had clothes for us to wash our hands afterwards which was most appreciated When we were walking with the elephants however, unlike some of the other places we had visited, it felt like they were just there for us and to make a profit out of them. Maybe they weren't, but whilst we were initially excited to do the tour, afterwards we felt maybe it wasn't the right thing to do After the tour, they take you make for more drinks (all included - beer and soft drink as well!) and then bundle you into a room to show you the video that was made as part of the tour and photos, both available to purchase. We did purchase the DVD which was delivered to our hotel later that night, but when we got home and played it the quality of it was horrific - certainly didn't look like the flashy version that we were showed. Was also labelled wrong and not what our tour was. Definite waste of money and suggest take enough of your own photos and don't bother with their one Also, Nice gift shop available with lots of different elephant stuff

When we participated in the Wild Elephant encounter it was at the beginning of our trip so we had no idea what to expect. From the moment we arrived we were treated as royalty with welcome drinks and a tour of the sanctuary. We climbed into the Jeep, started driving out to the to find the elephants and we were treated to a mini game drive as we passed birds and a beautiful Kudu just off the road. Having the opportunity to meet, touch, wall with and feed the elephants was by far a highlight of our trip. The guide, handlers and videographer were very professional. We have shared our video with several family and friends and they are always amazed. Make sure you go here when you are in Victoria Falls. It was awesome!

Amazing,amazing, amazing. Elephants are my favorite animals and I could not wait for the encounter. It was better than I imagined. The staff that walks with you is very knowledgeable of the animals and can tell they have a relationship with the animals. The animals are beautiful and very well cared for. They drive you out to the bush where you walk to where the elephants are. When you get their they will tell you about each elephant, get to pet them and take pictures with them, go for a short walk with them and then feed them. I would have liked the interaction to be longer but also could have spent all day just walking with them and watching them in their natural habitat.

WOW, from start to finish this trip with a mixture of youngsters and those young at heart has been amazing. The service we received from everyone at the Elephant camp & Wild Horizon staff in general has been exceptional. Lifelong memories were created for the first timers to this beautiful part of the world. Thank you to all the people from Wild Horizons who have made it so special.
