Ultimate River Cruise

For a superb Zambezi River Sunset experience, book the Ultimate River Cruise Safari. Enjoy an hour cruise on a River Safari Boat with a stop-off at one of the islands for drinks and snacks, then join the African Queen to toast the setting sun from the elevated Captain’s Cabin and watch the changing colours of a African sunset as you head back to the Royal Landing.


Experience the best of both worlds on this wonderful Zambezi River Sunset Cruise with a difference. The Ultimate River Cruise combines the picturesque tranquillity of the African Queen Sunset Cruise with the excitement of a River Boat Safari to experience the different aspects of this legendary river.

Being a smaller boat, the River Safari Boat can meander along remote narrow channels and speed across rapids, while the African Queen offers the chance to recline and enjoy gracious hospitality. The Ultimate River Cruise Experience offers both river cruises in one exceptional combination activity that will ensure you experience the perfect Zambezi River Sunset Safari.

At the Royal Livingstone deck, board the River Safari boat for an exciting speedy ride over the rapids, then slow down to a leisurely pace to enjoy close-up river game and birding before stopping for delicious refreshments on one of the islands. The adventure then continues upstream on the Zimbabwean side of Siloka Island where you join the African Queen to toast the Zambezi sunset from the comfort of the Captain’s Cabin. The trip back to the Royal Landing in the fading light is a magical conclusion to your Zambezi experience.
