Must do in Victoria falls
We really enjoyed the cruise, viewing the animals in the river, and the food. Great service too. We also saw elephants along the way to and from the boat dock while in the bus.

Highlights were a herd of elephants in the river, hippos, and the view from the boat in general. We found the food and drinks to be excellent. We thought the value was good. The staff sang the Africa song at the end of the cruise as the skies had opened and rain poured down. Absolutely worth doing when in VF.

Disappointment for the price
Feb. 2020
Everyone was very friendly and obviously trying hard to do all the right things. The drinks were readily available and the descriptions of the animals and stories were thorough and nice. However, the food was sub-par for the price. We stayed a long way from any wildlife so we had little or no opportunity to appreciate any of them.

They put nice romantic candles on the table, but there was a lot of chitter chatter by the cooks and staff at the back of the boat the entire time. It was loud and distracting. They were obviously having a good time, which I'm happy for them. But it was not appropriate for the atmosphere we were expecting.

Top rated experience in Vic Falls
Jan. 2020
We really enjoyed this cruise on the Zambezi river. There was free alcohol (which we weren't expecting) and a delicious 4 course meal with 2 options for starter and main. We met some very friendly couples sitting either side of us and it was great to chat with them about their travelling experiences and share local tips and recommendations. The cruise itself took us up an down the upper part of the Zambezi (before the falls) and we saw the 'smoke that thunders' from the deck, along with a crocodile, elephant, some hippos and some birdlife. The service was excellent the the crew were welcoming, amusing and attentive to our needs. The cruise itself was very relaxing and a great introduction to Vic Falls! Highly recommended!

Dinner Cruise on Zambezi Refletions
Dec. 2019
The food was good and plenty of it. Drinks were readily available. We saw some hippos and one crocodile along with lots of birds. The tables are well spaced out, so there is space to move around and get photos.

Remarkable relaxing experience!
Nov. 2019
We took the sunset cruise and were rewarded with sightings of elephants, hippos, giraffes, warthogs, etc. Pick-up and drop off were included. We had to pay $20 or $30 for 2 people on top of the river cruise fee to enter the park. There were few passengers and we were seated on the upper deck only. However, we were free to walk around. Drinks were unlimited, food were delicious and the ambiance was so relaxing. Although the price was a tad expensive, but it was a wonderful and relaxing 3 hours that we would highly recommend. Thank you!

Magical way to end our trip!
Nov. 2019
My partner and I recently went to Vic Falls to celebrate my 40th birthday - and wow, did Zimbabwe deliver. This cruise was the cherry on the cake for us, as we not only enjoyed the wonderful sites of the magnificent Zambezi, we were spoiled by the crew and given the most amazing three course meal. We would highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Vic Falls and the standard of food was beyond expectation. I even got a happy birthday and bottle of wine! Thanks to everyone who made our evening special. xxxxx

A fabulous evening
Sep. 2019
This was a wonderful night from start to finish. We were on the Zambezi Reflections and enjoyed being on this smaller boat with only about 10 couples. The food was wonderful - far better than I had expected. We even had choices! They do well in such a small galley. The drinks were high quality and all included. The service was friendly and the staff were delightful. The sunset was stunning and we watched elephants and hippos as we ate and drank. I didn’t want it to end. Definitely do this if you are in Vic Falls!
