As you drift down the Chobe River and spot incredible wildlife scenes, you’ll be able to completely relax in an intimate river safari experience. With only a small number of guests per boat staying in one of the three Chobe Princesses is like being on your very own houseboat. The entire boat can also be booked exclusively, giving you your very own private villa on the water.
Chobe Princess Standard Cabins have beautiful big windows that slide open to let in those ever-changing river views. Listen to the soft grunt of hippo as you watch for elephant at the water’s edge – all from the comfort of your king-size bed. Cabin interiors have soft tan linens, and a soothing colour scheme of riverine blues and whites that blend with the natural landscape.
Instead of sliding windows, our Chobe Princess Superior Cabins each have their own private balcony. Imagine waking in the morning and stepping out onto your balcony facing Chobe National Park. Later, while the boat is sailing, you’ll have a front-row seat to the incredible landscapes and wildlife on the riverbanks. What’s more, the top cabin has an elevation that’s excellent for wildlife spotting.
Whether you’re a guest on the ever-elegant Zambezi Queen houseboat, one of her three Chobe Princesses, or at the secluded tented Ichingo Chobe River Lodge, you’ll be able to experience unique water-based safaris on the Chobe River that borders Namibia and Botswana.
We offer a wide variety of experiences at our three properties, ranging from tiger fishing along the Chobe River to our cultural tours where you can meet the Subiya tribe village elders and locals and gain a greater understanding of how the inhabitants of this 100-year old village live.
