The Zambezi Explorer Waterfront is the most breathtaking river bank venue the Victoria Falls has to offer. 

Mainland Venue

Our manicured lawns meet the river with over 110m of river frontage, creating a lovely ambiance with spectacular views. Our riverside is used as a venue for lunch, dinner, private events and weddings. Since the Zambezi Explorer picks up guests at the jetty along side our lawns, it is ideal for combining your riverside event with a cruise.


We have three main options for events. We can host your event onboard The Zambezi Explorer where then entire luxury catamaran is privatised for your event or you can hire a single deck for smaller functions. Alternatively, we can host your event on the banks of the Zambezi at the Explorer’s riverside venue. Each have their unique opportunities for spectacular eventing and they all include fresh gourmet cuisine, a comprehensive wine list and customisable themes. Why not combine a cruise with a riverside event for the best of both.
