Highly recommended as a must-do activity when visiting southern Africa, cruising along Botswana's Chobe River on board the elegant and sophisticated 45 metre Zambezi Queen conjures up images of a bygone era when romance and decadence romanced the wild and rugged world of Africa.
From your vantage point on the luxurious 5-star Zambezi Queen boat, you will be able to see a wide variety of African wildlife from Lion, Leopard, Buffalo and Wildebeest to a multitude of antelope species,all coming down to the riverbank to drink.The area is also known to be home to the largest population of Elephants in the world and visitors are guaranteed excellent sightings on these majestic giants.
The Chobe River forms the border between the Caprivi Strip in Namibia and the Chobe National Park in Botswana resulting in a constantly changing landscape of vegetation and landmarks. Conveniently located just 3 kilometres (1.86 miles) from Kasane International Airport, and 80 kilometres (49.6 miles) from Zimbabwe's Victoria Falls, visitors can explore the surrounding area and then choose to relax and spend 2 to 3 nights aboard this magnificent vessel as it meanders slowly down the river.
Days are spent enjoying a range of activities from relaxing on board and viewing game from the boat or disembarking onto a smaller boat for some up close boat based game viewing. Those wanting to explore the area further can enjoy a guide game drive through the nearby Chobe National Park or a visit to a nearby traditional African village, where friendly locals welcome you with singing and dancing.
On the first and second levels of the boat, luxurious and stylish en-suite rooms with crisp linen and comfortable beds await, to ensure a comfortable night's sleep or an afternoon nap. The air conditioned top deck is home to the lounge, bar, sunbathing area and pool where one can choose to sip on a delicious cocktail or to cool down with a refreshing swim in the pool.
Delicious evening meals are a romantic experience served on-board the boat or African boma style on the banks of the river. Friendly staff are available at all times to ensure that your ever need is seen to and that your safari experience on board the Zambezi Queen is everything you imagine it will be.
The day ends with a few more drinks at the bar after dinner or you can simply relax in a sun lounger and gaze up at the incredible night sky twinkling down on you or return to your comfortable room.
