Chobe safari aboard new luxury boat

The Zambezi Quee is a ‘luxury houseboat safari’ that will cruise along the Chobe river between Namibia and Botswana, just a few kilometres from where four countries meet: Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.  Wildlife viewing is done from the Zambezi Queen itself and from her three high-speed aluminium launch boats. There are also two fibreglass fishing boats so guests can try tigerfish and bream fishing in season (May-November). The 45-metre steel hulled river boat features just 14 suites and master suites. All have private balconies and full-length sliding shutters. There’s an open-plan lounge with a wood-burning fireplace, an astronomical telescope and a stylish bar area. The top deck features a swimming pool, sunbathing area and shaded seating area, where guests can also have massages and manicures / pedicures. On the third floor is the spacious dining room, which offers unobstructed views of the Chobe River.

  1. This sounds amazing. I stayed at the Chobe Game lodge for four nights in April and it was absolutely fantastic. Each day, we got a sunrise jeep safari, a mid morning boat safari and an evening jeep safari. We also go one sunset boat safari, which was one of my favorites. The top deck with unobstructed views must be amazing!
