Zambezi Explorer Cruise

The Zambezi Explorer Vessel

Launched in 2013, the custom-designed five-star cruise vessel takes guests on a luxury trip along the Zambezi River. The Zambezi Explorer has three decks to choose from. Some people prefer to be high and have a wider vista from the uppermost deck, others prefer to be closer to the water, to get a closer look at the wildlife and birds on the river banks.

There is a different level of quality and price between the decks, so you need to choose which one you prefer. The two lower decks provide a luxury service where guests can choose from an exciting range of beverages and cocktails as well as a selection of delicious snacks. The ‘Signature Deck’ is the uppermost level and it is pure extravagance with gourmet hors d’oeuvres and premium beverages served from a private bar. VIP guests can relax in the comfort of the deep-set couches and enjoy the pleasure of luxury service.

Harvesting the abundant sunshine, almost the entire onboard facilities are solar-powered. It has wheelchair access and wheelchair-friendly facilities. The Zambezi Explorer Company caters for regular cruises, private functions, conferences and weddings.

The Experience

Guest are collected from their hotels and transferred to the Zambezi Explorer jetty site.

As with other cruise operators, the cruise boat stays well away from the Falls themselves, 4 km (2.49 miles) away.

Such a large body of water understandably attracts a whole host of wildlife which comes from the often dry interior to quench their thirst. The river is home to great pods of hippo, which are now accustomed to these cruises which can get close to them without any danger. The more sinister-looking crocodiles are regularly seen basking on the banks or gliding through the water. Elephantsgiraffebuffalo, waterbuck, kudu, impala, baboons and monkeys, along with a plethora of exotic birds are regular sightings.
