Experience the Chobe River
on safari like never before
A Luxury Houseboat Safari on the Chobe River
Many operators are thinking outside of the traditional bedroom box to find and create unique enclaves where we can rest our heads on truly luxurious holidays. And one in particular grabbed the attention of our team at Elite Travel Concept - a boutique floating hotel on the Chobe River - the five-star Zambezi Queen.
This offers a river safari at its finest, and the sublime service combined with the extraordinary comfort will ensure you enjoy every second of your two- or three-night stay. So you can kick back and soak up the surroundings from the private balcony attached to your air-conditioned master suite.
One of the many beauties of travel is that it’s constantly evolving; bound to the nature of discovery that lies at its core. As we develop new technologies, push new boundaries and create new experiences, travel is taking us to new places - metaphorically and figuratively - that we may never have dreamed of before. Modernisation also plays its part in improving on the tried and tested forms of shelter that date back centuries so that we can sleep in style in a ‘treehouse’ in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, or lap up the luxury in a ‘cave bedroom’ in the Cederberg Mountains.
The Zambezi Queen is a 42-metre long houseboat that, according to its website, “offers unparalleled sophistication in one of the most remote locations on the planet”.
Navigating roughly 25km of the Chobe River over the course of your stay, you will spend your time onboard exactly as you wish, thanks to a range of activities on offer and the flexibility to do as little or as much as you please. You can go birding, fishing, or just simply wake up to the sounds of the river, cool down in the plunge pool like the crocodile on the banks, and sip a sundowner while watching an elephant quench its own thirst.
And if that weren’t enough, the experience is further heightened by offering locally sourced culinary delights and excellent wine pairings that are fit for the most discerning palate. Over the course of your river adventure, you will even have the chance to indulge in an African dinner and try the traditional local dishes, such as moroho (a spinach based dish) and pap (maize meal porridge).
