During the cruise in which drinks are included, we were able to see several types of wild life including buffalo and hippo. There are three 'stories' to the boat and the two higher decks give a much better view of the river banks. Great service...More

Lovely way to relax on the Zambezi river while being served snacks and drinks. The sunset was amazing. "A little short", but good.

2 of us were booked on the sunset cruise on the Zambezi river aboard the Lady Livingstone. They sell this as a 5* activity. Not even close. The boat sets sail from the David Livingstone Lodge. Boarding the boat you are greeted by lovely staff...More

Took a sunset tour which included dinner. Honestly, I wish I had skipped this and saved the money. The “dinner” was a few peanuts, some sad cold chicken and a veggie that I can’t even remember. And the “endless drinks” were really, really week and...More

Interesting to see the large number of Hippos in the Zambezi River and the Crocodiles sunbathing on the banks of the river. Saw large herds of elephants in the distance and impalas roaming around. Sunset was a beauty especially as the skies were clear. Relaxing...More

Delivers what it says and more. Drinks included - Gin and tonic, beer and wine. 3 courses of appetisers included which are very substantial and very tasty. Read reviews beforehand about whether or not you need dinner afterwards. I'd say book a late dinner and...More

A bit pricey but the drink is free flowing. Lovely views and sunset. Don't rely on snacks to fill you up.
