At sunrise, the water is at its stillest and the tranquility is only broken by bird song. Watching the river come to life as the sun rises over the Victoria Falls is a magical experience that’s popular with guests on their last day at the Falls as a farewell to Zimbabwe and the majestic Zambezi. Tea, coffee, juice, water and muffins are served on the cruise, but you’ll be back at your hotel in time to enjoy the hotel breakfast too.
