Where To Find Zambezi Queen and Chobe Princesses
Situated in Northern Botswana, Chobe National Park is the second largest National Park in Botswana with the largest concentration of game in Africa. The luxury houseboats are located on the Chobe River within the beautiful Chobe National Park. The smaller Chobe Princesses traverse about 50 kilometers of the Chobe River, whereas the larger Zambezi Queen traverses a shorter distance of about 25 kilometres. During a stay on the Zambezi Queen or the three Chobe Princesses, guests will travel along the Chobe River close to the point where the African countries of Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe meet and get the opportunity to observe animals in their natural environment from a tender boat.
