Going Wild on the Chobe River

October 13, 2014 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

“The sum of its parts makes this cruise so unique – the unique location bordering the Chobe National Park (and home to around 120 000 elephants), that pampered feeling you get from the exquisite surroundings and of course the service which makes everyone feel special.”


Chobe is known for its game viewing through-out the year, it is therefore the perfect place from which to explore this part of Africa. Relax in a luxury suite, gazing at the banks of the Zambezi River while cruising on the most luxurious ship in Africa, the Zambezi Queen. You will experience amazing wildlife. Elephants, giraffes are common and you will also be able to see other animals like buffalo, leopard, lion and a variety of antelope and abundant birdlife.

The Zambezi Queen makes this cruise so special, with luxury and comfort. She has only 14 suites, making it elegant and comfortable while being completely unique and adventurous. Out of 14 suites, 10 of them are standard suites and 4 are master suites, which are located on the middle and lower decks. In all suites you will receive a magnificent view from floor to ceiling windows. Additionally, you can always step outside on the deck to feel the breeze of Africa. All suites are air conditioned, making sure you are comfortable even during African summers. Suites can be customised with a double bed or two single beds.


During a cruise on the Zambezi Queen you will be served 3 meals a day, with an English breakfast, buffet at lunch and a la carte or a buffet at dinner. All foods are made by trained staff who love to show off their talent with every plate served. There are places on board the Zambezi Queen for people to meet up and enjoy. Dining room and a lounge are located on the upper deck, which is fully air­conditioned. A plunge pool is located on the front deck with Sun lounger.

The nature of the cruise does appeal to guests of all ages as they have the choice in being as active as they wish or simply relax on the upper deck with a pair of binoculars and a drink. The excursions are not based on any particular age level but will also appeal to all ages. Passengers ages varies from mid 20’s to 60+.

You will be able to go near wildlife as close as possible, giving an adventurous experience while exploring nature. You are also able to do some fishing during seasons, all equipments will be provided by the staff. The birdlife is amazing there, with over 300 kinds of birds to see. The best part is you will be able to visit local villages located along the banks of the Chobe. You will be able to meet local people there and learn their culture and rituals and will see the collection of astonishing handmade crafts, maybe you get a bargain.


One has to be careful to see the stay as a typical cruise, starting at one point and ending in another. It is more considered a luxury African river safari and allows for a unique way of viewing the spectacular Chobe. The majority of guests tend to combine a stay on-board the Zambezi Queen with a few nights in Victoria Falls or even the Delta,  the world famous Rolos Train or an adventurous wildlife safari. All these trips are tailored to your needs by experienced travel professionals.
