The elegant Zambezi Queen is a 5-star, 42-metre-long luxury houseboat that sails a stunning 25km stretch of Africa's Chobe River, combining luxury and sophistication with an epic river safari.

On board, 14 suites come with private bathrooms and balconies, each offering stunning panoramic views of the Chobe River and its surrounding landscapes – watch elephants drinking from the river from the comfort of your cosy bed, or go one up to one of the four master suites that all boast outer decks and front sliding doors. The classic but contemporary interior in earthy tones with splashes of African-influenced fabrics and murals plays host to a plunge pool, sun loungers and comfy sofas, while the restaurant uses seasonal ingredients sourced from local markets for authentic flavours – try out traditional local food such as moroho and pap on an African-themed night, all alongside panoramic wildlife views. It’s the perfect prelude to a drink at the bar and comfortable lounge with stunning panoramic views, where all locally-sourced wines, beers and soft drinks are included.

This is truly a different kind of safari with endless flexible activities on offer. The hotel navigates roughly 25km of the Chobe River, stopping at different points for fantastic game viewing. Spot elephant in an area that's home to one of the densest elephant populations on the African continent, as well as buffalo, leopard, lion, antelope and an abundance of birdlife.
