Dancing when you arrive. Snacks on board and drinks for free. Lovely, quiet and wonderful for a nature lover. The sunset is something to see.

Seeing game is always a bonus - the real thrill is being on the iconic Zambezi and witnessing a glorious African sunset. You are always certain to see Hippos though, which is wonderful. Many thanks, Kent.

Pro: a smaller boat (we were a group of 23) can come close to hippos and crocodiles. And there were not other tourists. Contra: both drinks and snack were so-so
