We went on the sunset cruise with Shearwater. Great staff, great snack, unlimited drinks. Entertained by local traditional musicians on the Shaw. Saw buffalo, hippo and a baby crocodile. Well worth the money. Staff had a great sense of humour and very attentive

My work colleagues and I took in a sunset dinner cruise one evening while in Victoria Falls and it was a wonderful experience. Beautiful sunset, cool breeze on the river, and hippos! We enjoyed the food and wine and the wonderfully entertaining singers.
