A stay on-board Zambezi Queen is a different kind of safari. It’s the kind where you get to decide if you want to be up with the birds, or prefer to laze all morning watching game from the comfort of your bed. The itinerary is flexible so while there is a range of activities on offer, you can choose just how much you want to pack into your holiday or how relaxed you want to be.


Don’t think of your time on Zambezi Queen as a river cruise. Instead, think of it as a floating boutique hotel that departs and returns to the same point, navigating roughly 25km of the Chobe River.

 

Rooms

Standard suite come with en-suite bathrooms (shower only) and full length sliding shutters for both privacy and protection from the sun. Hairdryers, toiletries, gowns and slippers are provided for your comfort, while electronic safes in each room are ideal for storing your valuables. All suites accommodate two adults, and two of the larger standard suites can take a maximum of three adults.


Master suites let you relax and unwind in a luxurious setting as they are slightly bigger, and have larger balconies that house two deckchairs and a table for your viewing pleasure. King size bed with an en-suite bathroom (shower only). The master suites feature both side and front sliding doors for a truly panoramic view of your surroundings. Each suite was designed with the warm climate in mind equipped with air-conditioning and room fans to ensure you keep cool.

 

Facilities

Take a seat at your own private table and enjoy panoramic views of the wildlife during breakfast and lunch. Special dietary requirements can be catered for. The bar on the upper deck stocks a selection of local and imported spirits, wine and beers.


On the upper deck of Zambezi Queen you’ll find the dining room, bar and a comfortable lounge with unobstructed views of the unique African landscape that surrounds you.

As a guest on the ever-elegant Zambezi Queen houseboat, you’ll be able to experience unique water-based safaris on the Chobe River that borders Namibia and Botswana. You can experience catch and release Tiger fishing from one of the tenders of the Zambezi Queen.
