Spectacular river safari

Cool off in the heat of the afternoon with a dip in the refreshing plunge pool. Then sip sundowners on the deck, followed by a gourmet dinner beneath the stars. Fall asleep to the gentle rhythm of the boat as it glides majestically along the Chobe River. Whether you’re in search of a romantic escape for two, a memorable family vacation or an exclusive getaway with a group of guests, the Zambezi Queen or one of our three Chobe Princesses never fail to impress.

Families can enjoy a larger tent accommodating two adults and up to four children, while seven other spacious tents are perfect for two adults sharing or a group.
