Botswana’s Chobe National Park is renowned for its rich wildlife and fantastic game viewing and the Zambezi Queen’s route along the Chobe River takes you to the heart of the action, in relaxed luxury. This sophisticated vessel, combining elegance with a homely houseboat feel, is your passport to a very different safari experience.

On your two or three night itinerary you’ll combine water safaris with more traditional land-based 4x4 game drives to ensure that your experience contains the very best of both worlds. Smaller boats for the water safaris allow game viewing in amazingly close proximity, bird lovers in particular will revel in the opportunities this type of safari allows, and keen fishermen are sure to fancy a little tiger and bream fishing in season.

Your private suite, all crisp linens and cool white decor, complete with balcony, offers a personal window on the world of the Chobe River and the cruise becomes an ever-changing game-viewing experience in its own right. The life-giving river waters draw all types of wildlife and what could be more special than to dine at dusk on the top deck of the Zambezi Queen with unobstructed 270 degree views of animals clustering on the shores? Away from the mighty river there is choice aplenty, so as well as 4x4 game viewing there’s the opportunity to discover a little about the local culture with a village tour and you can gain a unique perspective on the area by choosing a helicopter flight for a little aerial insight (additional cost).
