Explore the Zambezi River in a propeller-free safari boat and see wildlife in its natural habitat as the sun sets over Africa

Explore the islands and channels upstream of the Victoria Falls in a specially designed water jet propulsion safari boat that can comfortably cross the rapids along the upper Zambezi River. Since there's no external propeller, the boat can operate in water as shallow as 20 centimetres. This gives it an operational range much greater than any other powerboat, extending from as close as 200 metres from the Victoria Falls to beyond the upper river lodges.

Late afternoon is a great time to be on the river, as the heat begins to seep from the day and the sun sets in bright, bold African colours. Aboard this '4x4 of the Zambezi River', you'll be able to get close to animals such as elephants, hippos and crocodiles in the river and along its banks, as well as to a number of bird species.
