Experience the beauty of the Zambezi River at sunset as dusk forms the backdrop of your guided cruise. This is a firm guest favourite at Royal Chundu, a chance to relax while our guides whisk you down one of Africa's grandest rivers, a river of myth and romance, in one of our spacious, pontoon boats. Watch crocodiles slip off the banks under water as you approach and listen to a chorus of snorting hippos, while you have a sundowner in hand. In drier months, when the sandbanks are exposed, the skipper will anchor near “Ellie Corner”, where you can spot herds of elephants as they drink, play, and bathe nearby. Other wildlife to be seen include baboon, impala, warthog and buffalo. This is also the time of day when African skimmers return to nest, discernable on the water's edge by their tell-tale red beaks.
