Wild Horizons Newsflash – August 2019

Sublime Zambezi Dinner Cruises on Wild Horizons’ Malachite

One month ago, the Malachite slipped into sunset with her first dinner cruise guests. Exploring a moonlit Zambezi River and exemplifying the hallmarks of exquisite cuisine, the debut of this product was a resounding success. Like the exquisite bird after which it was named, the “Malachite” is one of the Zambezi River’s crowning gems. Powered by two 60HP four-stroke marine motors, this beautifully crafted double-deck vessel silently slices across the surface of the river. On the upper deck, guests are offered a glass of sparkling wine to sip as they settle into the plush cushions. As the sun sets, it is swallowed by the river, leaving pools of colour melting through the sky.

Dinner, freshly prepared on board, is served on the lower deck. The rich aroma of locally sourced, fresh ingredients wafts around diners as the dishes are plated. Time seems to stand still as the boat gently glides along to the sound of water lapping up against her hull. A barman and three intuitive waiters anticipate guests’ needs, serving a selection of lively cocktails and imported premium spirits throughout their journey. Far removed from the glare of city lights and noise, the moon and stars shine brightly in the sky and an atmosphere of mystery and romance envelopes the evening’s experience. Access our image library here.
