The Zambezi Queen is unique in that it's a sophisticated, elegant experience that has not lost the essence of all that is uniquely African. When looking at the design it is apparent that no expense has been spared in creating a house boat of a world class standard, and this is especially so, when one considers this boat was built on the banks of the Chobe River.
The Zambezi Queen operates on the Chobe River, situated between Namibia and Botswana. The boat is based on the banks of the Caprivi Strip and is only a few kilometers from the place where uniquely, four countries meet, namely Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia.
The first and second levels of the boat incorporate 14 cabins - all of which have their own private balconies and have been tastefully furnished with either a double or two single beds. Of the 14 suites, 4 are master suites, some with their own private outdoor areas. These master suites are all larger than the 10 standard suites. Because of the limitations regarding power, none of the suites have been fitted with air conditioning units. However, each private space has been designed with the African summer in mind, and clever use of shutters situated on the outer edge of the deck and ceiling fans ensures a cool experience even during times of the year when external temperatures soar. Uniquely, the entire boat including the top deck, living and dining area, has mosquito screening.

Situated on the 3rd level with unobstructed views on three sides, our guests will dine in absolute opulence whilst taking in the unique African surrounds. In order to create a menu that reflects the flavours of Africa, we have commissioned Pete Goff-Wood, self-styled food alchemist and one of South Africa's top chefs. He has long been involved in all things pertaining to the African palate and has huge experience in authentic cuisine.
All sous chefs and waiters have been specially trained at his Cape Town-based training centre. The bar contains both local and imported spirits, wine and beers. All soft drinks, mineral water, tea and coffee are included as well as quality wines and beers during meals and during game viewing activities.
Water-based game viewing on smaller boats which enables close-up viewing in an environment where the animals do not feel threatened. Tiger and bream fishing in season. Bird watching from smaller boats.
