Enjoy sailing through Chobe River, Namibia's Caprivi Strip from Botswana's Chobe National Park, and its exotic banks boast one of the densest populations of wildlife on the African continent.

Teeming with life, this National Park sprawls across some 11,000 m of lush African bush, and is home to the largest populace of elephants in the world - currently estimated at roughly 120 000. Along with the elephants, leopards and lions, huge groups of buffalo, waterbuck, roan, eland, sable, giraffe, and, if you are lucky, one of the rare puku, can also be seen.

In the river itself watch out for hippo and crocodile, and keep your binoculars at the ready for spotting a rich selection of bird life.It is on this great expanse of untamed water an adventure unlike any other awaits.

Pamper, indulge, and feel superior comfort. Whether you are dining on Zambezi Queen's third level restaurant watching the animals gather at the water at dusk, game viewing from one of our private boats, or attempting to land your first tiger fish, the professional team onboard will be on hand to meet your every need.
