Discover Africa Cruise Review

“This cruise was nice. I liked the fact that the Zambezi Queen didn’t have room for as many passengers as your typical cruise – it felt intimate and luxurious. All of the activities were really fun, although I do wish more time was spent actually on-board rather than at a hotel.”

Peppa Riddelstone, Sail
