Pure Africa - Premium River Cruises

River boat cruise
Sunset Cruises
Pure Africa’s reimagined River Cruises bring a new level of sophistication to Victoria Falls, with our Sunset Cruise onboard our flagship vessel the Zambezi Explorer, the most popular offering. A recent saw newly crafted furniture, hand-woven Ndebele-patterned chairs and mood-enhancing light fittings all adding to the contemporary design elements. There are three decks on board, the 'Signature Deck' on the uppermost level is pure extravagance with gourmet hors d'oeuvres, cocktails and premium beverages served by a dedicated mixologist. The two lower ‘Luxury Decks’ offer inviting lounge seating and a range of beverages, as well as delicious snacks to savour while relaxing into the setting and service. (Max capacity 150 pax)

A private Sunset Cruise onboard Pure Africa’s smallest cruiser, the Kalunda, can be booked for a more intimate experience. Small and charming with a distinct personality, Kalunda allows guests to explore the Zambezi River’s navigable channels peacefully and intimately as it idles quietly up and downstream. Whatever the occasion, enjoy exclusive use with decadent canapés and cocktails served by attentive staff. As the sun sets, toast the orange-tinged sky, the lull of the waters and each other.
Dinner Cruise
Our Dinner Cruise offers everything and more. Not only the magical colours of the Zambezi River at dusk but a truly unique four-course dinner served as you savour the splendour of the setting sun. Ideal for food and nature lovers wanting it all. Embark from the Pure Africa Waterfront and head off into the evening. After your favourite drink is poured, you’ll be ushered to your set table where a delectable series of dishes freshly prepared on the boat and paired to premium drinks are served. Silhouettes of elephants against the sunset and hippos noisily grunting in the distance will most certainly add to the ambience.
Lunch Cruise
While most of Victoria Falls is resting and the Zambezi River flows largely undisturbed, head out for a Pure Africa Lunch Cruise. While our chefs prepare a three-course meal for you onboard, sit back and allow the natural spectacle of the river to unfold. Allow our experienced chefs to prepare a three-course meal on board, using only the freshest seasonal ingredients. A selection of Pure Africa wines and drinks are served as an accompaniment. Look out for elephants, and if you’re lucky get up close to the resident hippos while enjoying your meal. It’s an ideal time to be lulled by the water and exult in the fish eagle’s call. You’ll be forgiven for thinking you have the place to yourself – as it’ll feel that way.
Sunrise Cruises
There are many reasons to get up early in Africa, and our one-of-a-kind Sunrise Cruise is certainly one of them. Onboard, choose between a Continental and English Breakfast, which is prepared on board and served with freshly brewed coffee. The serene ambience that plays out on the river in the early morning hours is magical, and our Sunrise Cruise affords a perfect opportunity to soak up the setting. Marvel at the mirror-like Zambezi as you drift and seek out animals emerging into the new day, all the while enjoying the warmth of the rising sun. This cruise is especially rewarding for bird enthusiasts with our captains well versed in identifying the resident varieties.
