In 2017, CroisiEurope Cruises introduced the African Dream to cruise the waters of Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe. The 110-foot-long luxury vessel features eight well-appointed cabins; a bar/lounge; restaurant; small pool on the bow; and outdoor lounges on the stern and upper sun deck. With a friendly crew and a manageable number of daily excursions, guests can enjoy wildlife spotting along the lake shores and on a land safari in Matusadona National Park.
This Southern Africa cruise spans three nights in Zimbabwe. The weeklong itinerary also includes three nights at Croisi’s private Cascades Lodge, located on Impalila Island in Namibia (with flights to and from Kasane, Botswana). There, more safari excursions continue along the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers, as well as in Chobe National Park, which is home to lions, elephants, hippos, crocodiles, water buffalo, giraffes, antelope, and many more animals and colorful birds.
Passengers will also spend one night in Johannesburg, from which the trip begins with a city tour. Cruisers will also visit the town of Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, where they can join a scenic walk and take in sweeping views of the world’s widest waterfall.
