Zambezi Queen

Gliding along the picturesque banks of the Chobe River, the chic Zambezi Queen is a luxury houseboat boasting unrivalled sophistication in one of the most extraordinary and remote locations in the world.

As you weave your way through the still 25km waters of the Chobe River, you’ll experience the majesty and stillness of the African bush – imagine waking up to the sun blazing across the sky as you hear the songs of colourful birds; elephants gracefully lumbering along the riverside as you dine on sumptuous cuisine; hippos peaking their heads up from below the waterline as you observe them from the deck; and the night-time cry of jackals and lions lulling you to sleep.

Your deluxe accommodation on board features air conditioning and your own private balcony – perfect for viewing game from the comfort of your own surroundings as you cruise through an area renowned for its diverse wildlife and stunning natural landscapes.
