Sunset Cruise

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by raycarstairs on October 6, 2003

An obligatory part of any stay at Victoria Falls is the celebrated 'Sunset Cruise'. However, rest assured this is not a cruise for the faint hearted. Despite being billed as an opportunity to view river wildlife under a setting sun, this is not really a cruise for animal lovers . . . at least not lovers of the 4 legged kind.

Instead, the Sunset Cruise is really just an opportunity to let your hair down and party and the likelihood of seeing even a glimpse of any animals is slim as the rowdy boats drifting along the river scare everything out of its wits.

For your US$20, you get as much tasty food and booze as you can manage. We did attempt to drink the bar dry as it was my birthday, but our hosts still managed to keep the beer coming with smiles all round.

Remember, if you fancy a wild night on the tiles, this is the cruise for you. If you're a teetotaler and want to be at one with nature, forget it!!
