The Zambezi Queen

The waters of the Chobe River that form the divide between Namibia and Botswana are the lifeblood of Chobe National Park. It’s here that one can witness one of the largest remaining elephant populations left on earth. In addition, guests to Chobe can see a full spectrum of African wildlife from the top predators of lion and leopard through to an array of plains game and bird life

Traditionally the most popular way of game viewing is by vehicle, but the Zambezi Queen offers the discerning guest a chance to get away from the crowds and game view from the comfort of a luxury boat. The emphasis of the Zambezi Queen is on comfort, good food and relaxation.
