About Accommodation

Not your ordinary river cruise

Cruising along the Chobe River with a fresh cocktail in your hand, watching an orange-glowing sun sink slowly below the horizon? Well yes, but staying at the Zambezi Queen is so much more than a river cruise. It is a magical experience, where you can get extremely close to very relaxed wildlife. When you wake up and peek through the curtains, you will see elephants, hippos, birds - all indulging in the fresh waters of the Chobe River. Leave the ‘mother ship’ by hopping on a smaller, yet comfortable, tender boat to get even closer to the wildlife. You will soon realise that the Zambezi Queen offers a true hotel experience on the Chobe River, operating between Botswana and Namibian waters. This long (45 meter) luxury boat cruises gently down the river, with amazing views over the Caprivi Strip on one side and Chobe National Park on the other. Once on board, flexibility is key. Feel like venturing out in a smaller boat, or trying your luck during a fishing trip? It’s all possible. Or are you leaning more towards lazing all morning on the viewing deck to the background sound of rippling water? No problem, it is all about finding your own flow.

Sleeping in small ship cabins? We didn’t think so. This luxury vessel has three floors with fourteen cabins on the first and second floor. Spacious, modern, beautifully decorated, with comfortable beds and spa-like bathroom – just to name a few characteristics. There are ten cabins with a small private balconies and four larger master cabins. Cabins are twin or double, en-suite with a toilet and shower. There are fans and shutters to keep the cabin cool. All the main areas are on the top floor (for the best views), air-conditioned and protected by mosquito screening. Simply nestle yourself into one of the cosy nooks, glimpse at game through a telescope, order your favourite drink at the bar, or dip in the plunge pool with a 360°-degree view. And let’s not forget the culinary delights, served on board. From a creamy bowl of warming porridge in the morning, to a decadent white chocolate parfait at night: dining here is a treat. The well-trained kitchen staff effortlessly combines local flavours with culinary delights from the west, creating mouth-watering dishes, suited for true gourmet palates.
