Special activity for last night in Africa

Hello - Our family of four (2 adults and 2 young adults) will be ending our 2 week safari with a one night stay at the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge before we head home. Would like to get ideas for something extra special to end our trip. Thoughts, ideas? How are the sunset cruises/dinner cruises? Any ideas are welcome - thanks in advance!

Obviously you are going to go see the falls. A dinner or sunset cruise would seem like a good way to end the vacation. We did the Sunset cruise and it was relaxing with snacks and drinks and we enjoyed.

Agree with comments from RV429 - as you're staying at Vic Falls Saf Lodge, why not do your tour the Falls in the afternoon, then do a sunset cruise and then have dinner at the Boma which is at Vic Falls Saf Lodge - its great value for money, food is interesting fusion African based with game meat braii and buffet type service, but more than the food its a night of diverse entertainment, includes traditional dancers, interactive drumming and a bunch of fun stuff for everyone, there's even a 'witch doctor' if you choose to have your fortunes read. On the surface of it this all might sound a little kitch or Disney, but I've done dinner nights there on a few occasions now over the years and have always been impressed - and I'm Zimbabwean! Enjoy the rest of your stay :-)

I found the sunset cruise rather touristy. You're in a dinky boat and the food is pretty poor. The wildlife was somewhat interesting (we saw some hippos) but if you've already done a safari by then you may not find this so special. Instead consider a helicopter ride over the Falls. You can also go see it at night if it happens to be the time of the month for the moon rainbow. High tea at the Vic Falls hotel is amazing. We also ate at their fancy restaurant (Livingstone Room). A bit formal but excellent food and wine.
