For those wanting to experience the bush from the water, without the effort of paddling a canoe, we offer boat cruises on the Zambezi River. Morning cruises depart the lodge around early morning or a little later if required, but the early morning light is by far the best to spot and photograph bird and animal life as it starts on its daily journey. You will be back at the lodge around 9.30am.

Sunset cruises depart the lodge at 4pm, and will take you up and downstream to view the late afternoon activities of the abundant wildlife that call the Zambezi their home. From bushbuck and waterbuck on the lookout for predators, to elephant coming down to the water to drink and play, hippos wallowing and crocs cruising in the river – even lions sunning themselves on the banks of the river... the Zambezi at sunset is truly an amazing, enchanting experience. You will arrive back at the lodge just after sunset – around 6pm to 6.30pm depending on the time of year.
