If you need to up the romance, why not wow your significant other with an incredible getaway you won’t soon forget?
Here’s why the Zambezi Queen ticks all the romance boxes:
Location, location, location
For a dreamy and utterly Instagrammable holiday, you may not have considered a bush break. But then again, this is a bush break like you’ve never seen it. One of Africa’s last untouched wilderness areas, the Chobe River is a paradise for nature and wildlife enthusiasts, bird watchers and wellness seekers. You may be pleasantly surprised to discover that it’s also a haven of tranquillity for luxury lovers.
You’re ‘landlocked’ in one spot while staying at a traditional lodge. But a houseboat gives you a range of vantage points to take in the scenery. Plus, you only have to unpack once. The Zambezi Queen houseboat navigates roughly 25km of the Chobe River, allowing you to travel in smaller, more exclusive ‘safe bubbles’ for a truly hassle-free, peace of mind holiday.
Step on board our luxurious Zambezi Queen houseboat, rivalling any boutique hotel on land, and up the romance stakes.

Game watch from your bed.
Forget the traditional crack of dawn, chilly game drive. The Zambezi Queen’s 14 luxurious suites offer uninterrupted game viewing and sunsets, all with private balconies and floor to ceiling windows. Max out your river safari and opt for one of the four master suites nestled at the bow of the boat. The Master Suites are more spacious, but they also have two balconies. The larger balcony makes for the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee or sundowner in private, all while game watching from your front-row seat. On deck, hop into the plunge pool for a spot of game viewing!
Dining for two
Forget arguing about what’s for dinner or who is doing the washing up. The Zambezi Queen’s superb locally trained Namibian chefs will whip up an array of seasonal dishes, combining the best of local flavours with world-class culinary concoctions. All meals are included and consist of a full English breakfast, a buffet lunch and a choice of two plated menu options for dinner.
Come dusk, snuggle up and enjoy a sundowner at the bar and lounge on the upper deck. Where else in the world can you enjoy game viewing under the star-studded African sky as the landscape changes before your eyes!
Keen to get active? If you can haul yourself away from the plunge pool, embark on a photo safari, game viewing, fishing and birding safari – all included.
Hop on a tender river safari boat to get up close to some of the stunning wildlife, take a morning birding cruise down the river with a knowledgeable guide or try your hand at catching a Tiger Fish.
There are a few logistics you’ll need to organise before you leave – like deciding where and when to go, how to get there, and what you’ll need to bring with you. You’ll find useful information about the Chobe National Park area, as well as facts on visa and border entry requirements, transport, weather, what to pack and more here.
