Botswana’s Chobe River is a destination in itself for those looking to experience the thrill of wildlife up close.  And on the elegant Zambezi Queen, which accommodates only 28 guests, you’ll have a true intimate safari experience.

The banks of the Chobe National Park boast one of the densest populations of elephant on the African continent – currently estimated at approximately 120,000. The Park is also home to a large number of buffalo, leopard, lion along with a variety of antelope and abundant bird life. On the Namibian banks of the Chobe River, you’ll find the gentle nature of rural Africa as the local people welcome you to their village.

Choose from either 2 or 3 night stays on the Zambezi Queen. With tiger and bream fishing on offer, morning and afternoon water-based game viewing by tender boat or a visit to an authentic Namibian working village, where you can browse their selection of handmade crafts, excursions are many and varied. Or, take life in the slow lane and enjoy game viewing from the comfort of your luxury suite or enjoy the expansive views from the upper deck of the Zambezi Queen.

Combine the 2 or 3 night Chobe River cruise itinerary with South Africa, Victoria Falls or other Africa destinations for an unforgettable land and cruise itinerary.
