Literally situated in the Chobe River, the Zambezi Queen is a luxury resort that floats between Namibia and Botswana. Offering an experience unlike anyone else, a stay on the Zambezi Queen is a true bucket list adventure. Aboard this vessel, you can take an African safari from a vantage point not afforded to most.
Why Zambezi Queen
It’s said that an existence near to water is conducive to an ultimate, tranquil state. The Chobe River will aid your relaxation while you sit on its upper deck, drink in hand, eyes to the starry skies and engulfed in the natural sounds of the plains. Within initial steps out of bed, guests are met with elephants, antelope, lions and leopards, engaging in morning routines of their own. There is more to Zambezi Queen than the fact that she sails and guests can experience:
- Dining and drinks on the upper deck
- Private boat excursions
- Sailing journeys along the banks of Chobe National Park
- Three meals a day that include at least one buffet
- A plunge pool and sun loungers
- Extra activities including local village visits and game drives
Holding 10 standard suites and 4 master suites, this luxury vessel has been crafted with excellence in mind and decorated by a renowned, South African interior designer. The suites are laid out with floor to ceiling windows and muted internal tones to make the beauty of the animals more drastic as they graze by outside. As your feet hit the floor, amble to the windows, stretch up your arms and watch the elephants bathing by the banks, all before you even eat breakfast. Suites will include:
- Air conditioning
- Private balcony
- Choice of double or two single beds
- An emphasis on natural lighting
Make it Extra Special
Go beyond the boat by booking extra nights on a fly-in safari to a luxury tented camp in the Okavango Delta. As one of the largest inland water systems in the world, it thrives when tectonic plate shifts cause the Kwando River to flood the plains. Try to visit during the dry season, from May to October when this delta becomes teeming with animals looking to hydrate. Unlike anywhere else around globe, giraffe, zebra, hippos, buffalos, elephants, leopards, lions, wildebeest, African wild dog, impala and cheetahs flock to the scene in unfathomable numbers, putting on a once in a lifetime display for lucky viewers.
If visiting Africa wasn’t special enough, outdo all other experiences by taking a safari from the life blood of the plains.
