Chobe National Park accommodation

Zambezi Queen

Zambezi Queen


The Zambezi Queen Houseboat cruises on the Chobe River next to the Chobe National Park. The Zambezi Queen Houseboat is accessible from Kasane through Kasane immigration, but transfers from Livingstone and Victoria Falls are arranged. Departure dates are available comprising two or three-day set itineraries. The Zambezi Queen Houseboat is equipped with 14 suites on board and is, therefore, the biggest boat cruising the Chobe River.

Another unique aspect of cruising on the Zambezi Queen is that it is the only houseboat that offers game drives in the Chobe National Park as a included activity. The Chobe River adds a level of wildness and provides an excellent opportunity to experience the abundance of natural wildlife of the Chobe National Park. The combination of land and river safari offers a unique perspective on the Chobe region.

This great Zambezi Queen is a great overnight or two days packaged option for travelers seeking a tranquil and comfortable experience while visiting the Chobe National Park. Book your Zambezi Queen.
