Wildlife and the Falls Cruise Review

“I honestly can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed this cruise so I’ll keep my review brief. If I had to sum up my experience with one word, that word would be ‘perfect’. The fact that we got to travel as frequently as we did was already the main reason I booked the cruise in the first place, but the high standards the food, staff, itinerary and accommodation were held to are what have cemented this cruise as the best I have ever been on. Worth every penny.”

Chris Price, Winchester, Hampshire

Wildlife and the Falls FAQ

Find answers to some of the most common questions about river cruising here.

What language is spoken on board?

The official language spoken on board the Zambezi Queen is English. Most of our crew members can speak English fluently.

What should I wear during my Wildlife and the Falls cruise?

Since you will be travelling through Africa, you are advised to travel light due to the strict limitations on baggage size and weight required by some itineraries. While on safaris, wear casual clothing that requires little effort to keep in good, working condition, including long-sleeved articles that will protect you from sun exposure and insects, such as mosquitoes.

If you’re travelling during the winter period (April – September), it is advised that you bring some warm clothes to combat the lower temperatures early mornings and late nights bring. Layering your clothing is also advisable as temperatures tend to rise during the day.

Is Wi-Fi available aboard the ship?

Yes, complimentary Wi-Fi is available aboard the ship, but connectivity may be limited and spontaneous during particular times of the day given the isolated location of the ship.
