Overview

DELUXE | CRUISE: The banks of the Chobe River boast one of the densest populations of wildlife on the African continent. Experience the thrill of water-based game viewing, seasonal fishing and cultural visits, all while staying aboard the Zambezi Queen luxury houseboat.

The Zambezi Queen is unique, in that it’s a sophisticated, elegant experience that has not lost the essence of all that is uniquely African. There can be few natural wonders as synonymous with Africa’s raw wilderness as the great Chobe River. These waters divide Namibia’s Caprivi Strip from Botswana’s Chobe National Park, and its exotic banks boast one of the densest populations of wildlife on the African continent. Teeming with life, this National Park sprawls across some 11 000 m of lush African bush, and is home to the largest populace of elephants in the world – currently estimated at roughly 120 000. Along with the elephants, leopards and lions, huge groups of buffalo, waterbuck, roan, eland, sable, giraffe, and, if you are lucky, one of the rare puku, can also be seen. In the river itself watch out for hippo and crocodile, and keep your binoculars at the ready for spotting a rich selection of bird life.

It is on this great expanse of untamed water an adventure unlike any other awaits. The Zambezi Queen is all about pampering, indulgence, and superior comfort. Whether you are dining on our third level restaurant watching the animals gather at the water at dusk, game viewing from one of our private boats, or attempting to land your first tiger fish, the professional team will be on hand to meet your every need.
