Last week, I was thrilled when some representatives from the Zambezi Queen, a new African river safari vessel, came to our offices to talk about their product. I am very excited about this option and think it would be a perfect addition to a Botswana safari or visit to Victoria Falls!
The sailing vessel is ultra-contemporary, with only 14 suites, and it offers 2- and 3-night safaris down the Chobe River — but it is definitely not your average cruise! It really is more of a floating boutique property, as it offers all of the amenities that one would expect from an intimate safari lodge but the experience takes place on the water. As guests sail from Kasane (Botswana) to the Caprivi Strip (Namibia), they enjoy gourmet meals, twice-daily game viewing opportunities on small boats, land excursions, and a riverside boma dinner. Each evening the boat anchors in the middle of the river, providing a calm oasis and unbeatable views from guests’ private balconies. The Zambezi Queen would be an ideal experience for anyone looking for a relaxing and off the beaten path experience; please feel free to contact me for additional information or to discuss incorporating it into your own safari experience. -Jessica
