A 2-night Africa safari cruise on the Chobe River


width="128"
The Zambezi Queen cruise on the Chobe River is not a traditional cruise; it’s more of a float on the Chobe, and works best as an add-on to a African safari or vacation.

What’s better than an African safari? How about a super-lux Africa safari cruise! A mere 28 guests sail aboard the elegant Zambezi Queen, enjoying endless luxury and up-close access to Africa’s amazing wildlife for two nights on the Chobe River. If this isn’t a dream river cruise, we don’t know what is.

Along Your Journey – Chobe River Sights
Step into another world as you make your way along Chobe National Park. Sailing roundtrip out of Kasane, Botswana, this 2-night Africa river cruise makes stops in Cenku and Mbalasinte, Namibia – taking in all the wild sights along the way. Thrilling encounters with wildlife are a highlight of the voyage, seen up close on water-based game drives by tender boat. Spend your time spotting elephants (there are around 120,000 here), as well as the buffalo, leopards, lions, antelope, hippos, and birds that make their home in the park.

During the season, grab some tackle, bait, and a stocked cool box and cast a line for tiger fish and bream. Immerse yourself in local life with a visit to a village on the Namibian side of the river – a cultural opportunity like few others.

As You Sail – Lux Onboard Life
The Zambezi Queen – or ZQ, as it is fondly known – is likely to be one of the most unique luxury river cruise ships you’ll ever step aboard. This floating hotel features only 14 suites, each lavishly appointed with air-conditioning, a private balcony, and tasteful modern furnishings. Floor to ceiling windows offer magnificent views – and the once-in-a-lifetime chance to spot an elephant from your bedside.

Relax on the cool upper deck, which features a dining room, a plush lounge, and a plunge pool complete with sun loungers. Sip a drink as you watch the scenery go by – the bar stocks a selection of local and imported wine, beer, and liquors. The all-inclusive cruise comes with three sumptuous meals daily, prepared using fresh ingredients from local markets for a true taste of the region.
