River cruises are a perfect way to enjoy the tranquility of Africa. Gently floating on a Mokora through the Delta or a house boat on Kariba as you pass large and small game as they drink and play in the cool waters is a memory that must be made while on a Safari, and better still, it can be done with a GnT in the hand while your feet dangle over the passing river - Just be careful of the crocs.
