Zambezi River Cruises

Introduction to Zambezi River Cruises

The Zambezi is a river in Africa with an overall length of 2,200 miles. The source of this amazing river is in Zambia, and from there it flows through Angola, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique, and then into the Indian Ocean. Zambezi River cruises are very popular for several reasons, one of them being the fascinating flora and fauna and the other main reason being the breath taking Victoria Falls which David Livingstone described using the words: “Scenes so wonderful must have been gazed upon by Angels in their flight.” These two reasons are more than enough for anyone to have a good excuse for deciding on a Zambezi River cruise.
