The Zambezi Queen and King's Den are unique in that it's a sophisticated, elegant experience that has not lost the essence of all that is uniquely African.

There can be few natural wonders as synonymous with Africa's raw wilderness as the great Chobe River. These waters divide Namibia's Caprivi Strip from
King's Den Lodge & Zambezi Queen Namibia roomBotswana's Chobe National Park, and its exotic banks boast one of the densest populations of wildlife on the African continent. Teeming with life, this National Park sprawls across some 11 000 m of lush African bush, and is home to the largest populace of elephants in the world currently estimated at roughly 120 000. Along with the elephants, prides of leopard and lion, huge groups of buffalo, waterbuck, roan, eland, sable, giraffe, and, if you are lucky, one of the rare puku, can also be seen. In thKing's Den Lodge & Zambezi Queen Namibiae river itself watch out for hippo and crocodile, and keep your binoculars at the ready for spotting a rich selection of bird life.

It is on this great expanse of untamed water an adventure unlike any other awaits. Why join the crowds on land-based game drives when you can experience the thrill of it all from your own private suite aboard a luxury 45 meter boat? The Zambezi Queen operates in 5-star opulence, and is all about pampering, indulgence, and superior comfort.

Whether you are dining on our third level restaurant watching the animals gather at the water at dusk, game viewing from one of our private boats, or attempting to land your first tiger fish, our professional team will be on hand to meet your every need.

The Zambezi Queen operates on the Chobe River, situated between Namibia and Botswana. The boat Zambezi Queen Namibia - roomis based on the banks of the Caprivi Strip and is only a few kilometers from the place where uniquely, four countries meet, namely Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia.

The Zambezi Queen cruises on the banks of the magnificent Chobe National Park with its teeming wildlife and approximately 120 000 elephants and over 400 species of birds. The boat is also only 70km by road from one of the great wonders of the world, namely the Victoria Falls.

The Zambezi Queen is conveniently located about 80km from both Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and Livingstone Zambia and 3km from Kasane International Airport all of which have international airports and operate regular scheduled flights out of Johannesburg, with Kasane been ideally suited to charter flights.

Transfers from airport to the boat are by road and takes approximately 90 minutes. Road transfer guests will be collected from immigration situated on the banks of the river at Kasane in Botswana for the 10 minute boat transfer to our docking station.

Location: Chobe King'sZambezi Queen Namibia Den Lodge is situated in the east Caprivi on the banks of the Chobe River, which forms the border of 4 countries (Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia). The lodge is equally easy accessible from these countries as well as from South Africa. Guests will be met at the Kasane immigration office in Botswana and transferred to the lodge by boat. The guests leave their vehicles at the Kasane border post, at secured parking.

Accommodation: 10 wooden chalets with balconies overhanging the river, offer a magnificent view of the Chobe and Sedudu (Kasikili) Island. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms and are equipped with ceiling fans. The Zambezi Queen, moored on the river at the lodge, offers another 8 air-conditioned rooms with en-suite bathroom facilities and lounge.

Zambezi Queen: All double rooms have an en suite bathroom with shower; a lounge and a sliding door leading to a private walk way. All single rooms have an en suite bathroom with shower/bath with a communal sitting room. All rooms Zambezi Queen Namibia - restaurantare fully air-conditioned and have a hairdryer.

The Zambezi Queen operates on the Chobe River, situated between Namibia and Botswana. The boat is based on the banks of the Caprivi Strip and is only a few kilometers from the place where uniquely, four countries meet, namely Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia.

The Zambezi Queen cruises on the banks of the magnificent Chobe National Park with its teeming wildlife and approximately 120 000 elephants and over 400 species of birds. The boat is also only 70 km by road from one of the great wonders of the world, namely the Victoria Falls.

Cabins

The first and second levels of the boat incorporate 14 cabins - all of which have their own private balconies and have been tastefully furnished with either a double or two single beds. Of the 14 suites, 4 are master suites, some with their own private outdoor areas. These master suites are all larger than the 10 standard suites. Because of the limitations regarding power, none of the suites have been fitted with air conditioning units. However, each private space has been designed with the African summer in mind, and clever use of shutters situated on the outer edge of the deck and fans ensures a cool experience even during times of the year when external temperatures soar. Uniquely, the entire boat including the top deck, living and dining area, has mosquito screening.

Lounge/pool deck

The top deck is air-conditioned and consists of the dining room, the lounge, a bar and a sunbathing area complete with private pool. The interior furnishings have been designed by one of South Africa's top designers and this can be seen by the elegant, timeless look that has been created. Also to be found in the living area is a library of books, numerous games and a telescope for studying the stars at night.

When looking at the design it is apparent that no expense has been spared in creating a house boat of a world class standard, and this is especially so, when one considers this boat was built on the banks of the Chobe River.
