Zambezi River Sunset Photoblog
Traversing six different countries, and 2500km in length, the Zambezi River is one of Africa’s most spectacular attractions. Flowing from the Zambian highlands to the Indian Ocean in Mozambique, it is a life source for countless people, wildlife, and flora. Along its course, the Zambezi River also boasts a wide range of exciting activities, suitable for adventure-seekers, wildlife enthusiasts, and laid-back holidaymakers alike.
Nowhere is this more apparent than Victoria Falls – Africa’s bustling adventure capital. The town of Livingstone is Zambia’s gateway to Victoria Falls, and Livingstone’s Adventure is the top activity provider/tour operator on the Zambian side of this Natural World Wonder. As expected, a number of activities offered by Livingstone’s Adventure centre around the Zambezi River, including but not limited to river cruises, canoe trips, boat safaris, and microflight flights.
Easily one of the most popular activities in Victoria Falls is a sunset cruise along the Zambezi River. Watching the sky spectacularly turn from day to night, with a refreshing G&T in hand, is an undoubtedly unforgettable way to end off another day in Africa. Operated by Livingstone’s Adventure, the African Queen – a triple deck 70 foot catamaran – is one of the best vantage points from which to enjoy this experience.
To provide you with all the persuasion you need to book a Zambezi River sunset cruise aboard this luxury cruiser, we’ve put together a detailed photoblog. After all, pictures do speak louder than words.
