Exceptional experience! by Justmewjd

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This Amawaterways tour was exceptional in every way!  The accommodation was 5 star throughout the 2 week period.  The stay in Cape Town and tours; the river cruise safari; the safari and stay a Tinswolo in Kruger National Park; Victoria Falls and Johannesburg were all outstanding.  It was so much more than we imagined.  All this and the food was superb!  I have traveled significantly and was not disappointed with anything this trip had to offer!

Awesome way to be on a Safari by dollyemerson

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

My husband I had a package with AMA WATERWAYS for an African Safari that included 4 evenings on the ZAMBEZI QUEEN.  It was absolutely the most fantastic experience one could wish for.  We were greeted by a very friendly staff and Captain, Wayne.  The bedrooms were lovely with small balconies with french doors - I would opp for the upgrade next time, but was still happy with our room. We went on several river safaris viewing elephants playing at the rivers edge, hippos, cape buffalos, birds, you name it - we saw it.  The river safaris were small boats that glided down the river and held 10 people comfortably.  One day was spent on a land safari in Chobe National Forest - we must have seen 50 elephants, 50 giraffes, hundreds of kudus, cape buffalos, and a leopard!  WOW!  Another treat was to visit the village of Josephine's (hostess on the Zambezi Queen) brother in law, Charlie.  The Village put on a special show for us and shared their beautiful Africian crafts.  We had a special "Bombay Dinner" one night and again were graced with Africian music and dancing.  The food on this Cruise was excellent, buffet style for breakfast and lunch with served dinners in the evening.  The excellent attentive staff led by an energetic fun captain made for a marvelous trip that we would love to repeat.  P.S.  The Zambezi Queen is a 14 room luxury "houseboat"  - it was a perfect blend to the rest of the trip, which included 3 evenings in Cape Town, 4 evenings on the Zambezi Queen, 2 evenings in Victoria Falls, 1 evening near JoBurg, 3 evenings in the bush at Tintswalo Lodge - ALL WERE LUXURY!!

This ship is really not comparable to other ships! It is more like a luxury houseboat - with only 14 rooms.

We loved the size - small - accommodating about 26 people total. The service and food were excellent and the excursions exciting and memorable.
