Zambezi Dhow Trip Experience: Experience one of the most ancient and purest forms of sailing, on a craft made entirely of natural materials. Wood, rope and canvas combine with wind and water to transport a maximum of 12 guests on an intimate trip building connections with their fellow travellers including our captain.
As the only traditional sail boats in Victoria Falls, the two dhows, Zambezi Tribe and Zambezi Origin, stand out beautifully and romantically on the Zambezi River with their striking silhouettes, providing the ultimate sense of personalised adventure. Experience authentic barefoot luxury and feel in-tune with nature, floating along the river, feeling the boat gently rocking you, taking in the sights and sounds around you, literally taking off your shoes to lounge luxuriously on large light blue canvas cushions, feeling freedom and simplicity without compromising on comfort. As a sail-boat, no noisy engines interfere with your experience; the boats are sustainable & eco-friendly, which is at the heart of Hideaways’ ethos of touching the earth lightly. The soft natural materials and light colours of the dhows blend in beautifully with the environment. By respecting the past and using traditional African innovation we are providing a truly unique memory of a beautiful journey along one of Africa’s most legendary rivers. The only one of its kind.
This Zambezi dhow trip experience includes refreshments in the style of canapes and cold beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) that guests will have a hand in mixing themselves, providing a relaxed and informal atmosphere of peaceful surrender to nature’s beauty.
