Gliding on the mighty Chobe River, this world-class house boat couples classic elegance with modern comforts, offering excellent sightings of the diverse wildlife that grace its banks. Ideal for romantics who are looking for two or three nights of boat-based safari experiences, the Zambezi Queen creates the ultimate, luxurious safari.

Relax on the deck, sip a refreshing drink in the lounge, or cool off in the pool as you look out over the river and spot wildlife on the banks. For closer encounters with wildlife, set out on smaller specialised boats that won't disturb the animals in their natural environment. Half-day land-based game viewing is yet another possibility, while a helicopter ride to view these animals from above creates a truly memorable experience.

With only 14 suites on the boat, you can look forward to privacy, luxury and excellent views of the river.

Each one of the suites has a private balcony, offering an excellent place to start your mornings. Each suite is elegantly appointed, with clean, crisp lines and carefully chosen furnishings. Suites either have two twin beds or one double, as well as an en suite bathroom.


The top deck is an entirely air-conditioned space where you can relax and be social. The lounge area features a library with many entertaining board games and a telescope, while the sunbathing area and pool are the perfect place to enjoy the warm days on the river.

The bar area is also located on the top deck and offer a wide selection of local and imported spirits, wines and beers.


The restaurant is located on the third level of the Zambezi Queen, and offers unobtrusive views of the river on three sides. Tuck into a full English breakfast every morning before heading out on your excursions.

Return to a delicious buffet lunch, while in the evening you can look forward to a formal dinner. All meals are overseen by the head chef, and feature local African dishes as well as international recipes.

Traveller Reviews

Zambezi Queen

Julia Martinez

"The Zambezi Queen was spectacular. Good combination of guests, great staff and hosts, great food, lovely mode of travel. Though the water was low, we took many game cruises and saw so much. Highly recommend this experience!"

Matthew Clark

"The Zambezi Queen was a fantastic selection. The food, staff, and accommodations were all top notch!"

Elizabeth Watkins

The Zambezi Queen is absolutely lovely, we all had a great time. It is quite a feat really as our ages spanned from 13 to 59 and we all enjoyed ourselves. It is really an amazing concept. The members staff were all so helpful and what they lacked in experience they more than made up with their charm and kindness. Nothing was too much for any of them. (We found quite a few ex Zimbabwean staff members which was great). The events and outings which were organised for us every day were great.
