The African continent is spectacular but there aren’t that many spots in Africa that remain as truly untouched as Mother Nature intended.
Sure, we love our little corner of Africa, the magical Chobe River region, but we know just how special the wider area is. That area, if you didn’t know, is the very aptly named Africa’s Eden. Africa’s Eden enjoys a claim to fame as the world’s largest transfrontier conservation area and southern Africa’s last untouched wilderness.
We’re lucky enough to be nestled in a tiny spot within Africa’s Eden, meaning that our guests can not only experience the delight of the Chobe River but also easily combine a trip with us to discover Africa’s Eden’s wider surrounds.
What and where is Africa’s Eden?
Africa’s Eden is the name given to the over 520,000 sq. km area of the KAZA (the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area). It’s the world’s largest transfrontier conservation area and incorporates 12 national parks and protected areas of natural significance.
The Africa’s Eden region encompasses, amongst others:
- The Zambezi and Kavango River basin where Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe meet.
- The towns adjacent to the Victoria Falls.
- The Okavango Delta.
- Lake Kariba, the Lower Zambezi and Mana Pools in Northern Zimbabwe
What’s there to see in Africa’s Eden?
- Home to the largest population of elephants in the world (75 % of southern Africa’s elephant population alone).
- The African Quadripoint – the only place on earth where four countries meet. You can see this with us!
- Impalila Island – a secluded, inhabited island nestled in the middle of the Zambezi River at the meeting point of four countries – Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana.
- Caprivi Strip – Named by National Geographic as one of the top destinations to visit in 2022, the Caprivi Strip boasts plenty of national parks and incredible wildlife sightings.
- Chobe National Park is home to four ecosystems, attracting one of the greatest concentrations of wildlife on the entire continent.
- The Chobe River flows in both directions depending on the floods or rains. Travellers can get the most out of the river experience by opting for a stay on our Zambezi Queen or Chobe Princess houseboats.
- The UNESCO listed Victoria Falls and the Chobe River make for our most popular combination package. Zambezi Queen Collection properties are located just 90 minutes from the Falls in Zimbabwe.
