On the water


From our luxurious cruises on the Zambezi River, you can experience all the wonders of nature that this mighty river has to offer.

The African Cruise Company has two vessels; the impressive African Queen, a triple deck 70 foot catamaran and the slightly smaller, but equally luxurious African Princess. Both offer the charming combination of the mighty Zambezi River and gracious hospitality; unforgettable experiences that will take you back to an era when time stood still.


Explore the Zambezi... Experience the wide winding river and the myriad of islands and channels above the Victoria Falls...

Victoria Falls River Safaris offers you an exceptional upper river safari experience. Our specifically designed propeller-free safari boats can operate in water as shallow as 20cm, increasing our operational range to as close as 200 metres from the Victoria Falls. As a result, we can now offer cruises to amazing parts of the Zambezi that have previously been out of reach.

Enjoy the thrill of speeding over rapids then slowing down for a leisurely game viewing trip around the islands.


River Cruising in Style... The combination of the River Safari and a Sunset Cruise will leave you breathless.

What is the best way to explore the mighty Zambezi? On a boat that meanders along remote channels and speeds across rapids, or aboard a luxury cruise boat that offers gracious hospitality? The Ultimate River Cruise Experience offers both unique river cruises in one unforgettable combination activity that will ensure you experience all the Zambezi has to offer.

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 game viewing before stopping for delicious refreshments on one of the islands. The cruise then continues upstream on the Zimbabwean side of Siloka Island where you join the African Queen or the African Princess to toast the African sunset from the comfort of these royal crafts. The trip back to the deck in the fading light is a magical conclusion to your Zambezi experience.


The ultimate fishing experience on the mighty Zambezi River.

With over 75 species in these waters, you can’t go wrong with a fishing excursion on the Zambezi River. It offers one of the most exciting and challenging experiences for avid anglers: an opportunity to catch the Tiger Fish.

Rated by many sports anglers as the finest freshwater fighting fish in the world, this powerful and swift predator is sure to give you a run for your money.

The fishing starts at Kalai island about 9 km above the falls. We then move downstream between the islands looking for the best spot where the fish are found.

At 07h30 Sun International residents are collected by boat at the Royal Livingstone deck, and a road transfer will collect guests from accommodation venues in Livingstone town. Departure is at 08h00 from the Royal Landing Jetty for an exciting morning’s fishing on the Zambezi. Both trips return at 12:00.

We supply all fishing equipment and tackle. A standard replacement fee will be charged for all lures lost by the angler.

Non-fishing partners are welcome to join the river safari experience, special rates apply.

Maximum anglers 6, maximum anglers per boat 4 plus non-fishing partners.

The rate includes return transport to your hotel, early morning tea and coffee, a light snack and cold beverages.
