Cruise serenely along the wide, remote stretches of the Chobe River between Botswana and Namibia aboard a luxury houseboat in the utmost comfort.

The 42m (138 foot) Zambezi Queen offers a true five-star experience in this most adventurous of locations, with 14 air-conditioned understated suites styled by South African designer Jenni Button.

All enjoy floor to ceiling windows and private balconies to look out at the passing riverbanks, an ecosystem home to one of the densest populations of elephant on the African continent – around 120,000 individuals – as well as a large number of buffalo, leopard and lion, a variety of antelope and abundant birdlife.

Dining at the restaurant is a real treat, with meals made from seasonal ingredients sourced from local markets for a sophisticated take on authentic regional flavours. There’s also a bar, open deck area for sundowners and a pool to cool off in.

There are a number of exciting activities to get involved with during your cruise, from water based safaris on the ship’s tender which can get right up to wildlife at the water’s edge, to guided walks and visits to local villages. The Chobe River is also a premier fishing destination for bream and tigerfish, a particularly prized game fish.
