Zambezi Queen

We are delighted to announce that by demonstrating a superb commitment to excellence and providing guests with an unforgettable river cruise experience, Zambezi Queen Collection took home the award for Africa’s Leading River Cruise Company 2019 at the 26th Annual World Travel Awards.

The five-star Zambezi Queen is a specially designed, stylish “floating lodge” built to offer sophistication along the Chobe River, one of the most remote locations on Earth. This world-class, unique African river safari offers remarkable opportunities for unobstructed viewing of wildlife and river vistas, whether from the comfort of your bedside or from the classic and contemporary lounge, bar, or open-air deck with plunge pool.

Local guides will lead impressive game-viewing river safaris aboard small, custom-built, private excursion boats.

Each of the 14 tastefully appointed, air-conditioned, spacious staterooms (from 215 to 300 square feet) features floor-to-ceiling windows with a sliding glass door that opens onto a private balcony, one queen bed or two twin beds, and a private bathroom with shower.

Regional cuisine is prepared by South African-trained culinary staff using fresh local ingredients with an international flair; the spacious dining room has windows on three sides for optimal game viewing as animals gather at the water’s edge. Onboard meals include early-risers’ coffee, breakfast, lunch and three-course dinner. Complimentary wine and beer are served with lunch and dinner.

The environmentally sensitive Zambezi Queen meets inland water safety standards and is specially designed with a water-jet propulsion system to prevent damage to the riverbed. It is fuel-efficient with low-emission generators and features solar-heated hot water and an onboard water purification system. There is no doctor on board the boat.
