Cruises in Victoria Falls

The Ra-Ikane fleet was built to ensure that each guest is able to experience the wild beauty of the Zambezi River with ease and style. Each boat has its own Ra-Ikane crew, made up of a captain, guide and waiter to ensure that you can sit back and enjoy the ride. As you meander along a stretch of river that boasts spectacular scenery and diverse wildlife, you’ll be closer to the action since the Ra-Ikane’s monohull boats allow you to be closer to the water line.

With the banks of the Zambezi National Park flanking each cruise, you’ll be sure to spot elephants, hippos and crocodiles from plush club chairs that sit around teak-topped tables, which accommodate up to four guests each. Don’t be shy; the crew encourages movement around the boat. With lots of space on the flat deck, make yourself comfortable in the space as you look out for exciting and exotic birds and wildlife. Your comfort is paramount; all transfers are included in the cruise and we can cater to dietary requirements.
