I guess my expectations were not properly set as I did not really enjoyed. I was hoping to see more animal live before getting to the sunset and it would have made the trip enjoyable. But the boat is so big it cannot get to close to the areas. So every time look like the smaller boat were wining the... More

3 levels of seating. Spacious and very comfortable. Excellent variety of drinks. The canapé starters and snacks were excellent. I advise sitting on the RHS of the boat as most of the game sightings heading upstream will be in the park on your right.

Superb, relaxing way to end the day. Best sundowner cruise in Livingstone. Three courses of snacks, unlimited drinks served by staff with a wonderful sense of humour! Didn't see much game on this latest cruise, but lots of fun nonetheless, and excellent company!

Five star cruise, with a marimba welcome as you board. Snacks and drinks served throughout the two hour sojourn. A must do for any visit to Livingstone. Sunsets are spectacular with game and bird spotting along the way. Staff are very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.

A really relaxing and lovely afternoon spent having a few drinks, spotting wildlife and watching the most spectacular sunset. We saw vultures, a large crocodile, large lizard and a number of hippos. Adding those to the Impala, Wart Hogs and Baboons we saw on the way to the boat, it was more than we could hope for on our first... More

We all had a lovely time on the Lady livingstone. Hippo and bird watching were the order of the day. The atmosphere was very social,with the elevated upper deck affording some great viewing. Luckily for us the cruise was included in our accommodation at the David Livingstone, which was a fab surprise as it's a bit pricey for the SA... More

This is a great sunset cruise along the Mighty Zambezi. It is very scenic with the sunset and also being able to see Victoria falls. It is relaxing and there are finger foods and drinks provided.
