On our first night in Zimbabwe, Drew and I went on a sunset river cruise on the Zambezi. We went on a tour with Ra-Ikane and had a great time–definitely recommend them if you’re interested in a peaceful river tour while in Victoria Falls.
The tour company picked us up from our hotel and dropped us of at the dock. We boarded the boat and were treated to cocktails and snacks, which continued to be replenished throughout the journey.
It was a drizzly evening on the Zambezi, so there wasn’t too much of a sunset. However, the river was very active! During our river cruise, we spotted crocodiles, hippos, and plenty of birds. We also saw fresh elephant tracks, but sadly, no elephants.
Overall, it was a relaxing boating experience and we were thrilled by the animal sightings. Our skipper kept his eyes peeled throughout the excursion and made sure to point out different animals as we made our way down the river. It was the perfect way to kick off our time in Victoria Falls!
