This was the most incredible life experiences! The AmaWaterways Cruise - African Wildlife and Falls exceeded all expectations. The Zambezi Queen cruising on the Chobe River in Namibia with side land safari in Botswana allowed you to see wildlife in their natural habitat and to experience a true African village and understand their lifestyle. The Water Safaris [5] lead by Francis viewed elephants, baboons, crocodiles, hippos, cape buffaloes and others up close. The staff led by Bernard was always there - friendly, helpful and proud of Namibia. The food was outstanding - gourmet quality comparable to first class restaurants anywhere. The Land Safari into Chobe National Park was also excellent viewing elephants really upclose - 5 feet or so. Our next visit was to Victoria Falls, standing at the grand hotel Victoria Falls Hotel. There room was vintage and modern 1920â??s; the food again was outstanding. Two experiences stood out: [1] the visit to the Falls - massive and magnificent and [2] the steam engine ride to Zambia. Then, we visited Jo-burg - an ok experience. Finally, we were off to the Makanyi Lodge and Game Reserve - a totally incredible and peak experience. The Lodge has seven cabins- 2.500 sq.ft. - with living room, bedroom and massive bath including outdoor shower. The food was 5 star, including Kudu tenderloin. During our five safaris, we experiences lions, giraffes, zebras, hippos, cape buffaloes, rhinos - black and white, hyenas, and sunsets.
