Go Green On The Zambezi Queen


Creating a unique travel option in the Chobe, one of Africa's finest national parks stretching across 11, 000 km² of lush African bush was the inspiration behind the unique and totally eco-friendly Zambezi Queen River Boat, part of the renowned Mantis Collection.

Guests tend to enjoy their experience even more in the knowledge that they are not leaving a heavy footprint, carbon or otherwise, after their visit. Being aware of the impact people have during their travels is in the forefront of the travelling community's mind nowadays.

Very few travel experiences are said to compare with the Zambezi Queen. Something that guests often remark on is the delightful contrast of being in a remote African destination and viewing all this raw beauty in sophisticated five-star luxury.

The Chobe is home to the largest elephant population in the world, currently estimated to be around 120,000. Elephants by the dozen often come down to the river to drink, and to play. Prides of lions, leopards, huge herds of buffalo and numerous species of antelope also wander the riverbanks, and hippos and crocodiles regularly appear from the water. And all of this can be enjoyed with a drink in hand, sitting in a comfortable chair!

Running between Botswana and Namibia, it is a travel experience of a completely different kind and is available on a 2, 3 and 5-day itinerary, with cruise-only prices from $975 (based on double occupancy).
