The luxury Chobe Princess Houseboats operate on the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers in Botswana. With only a small number of guests per boat; staying in one of the three Chobe Princesses is like being on your very own luxury houseboat.
The Chobe Princesses traverse about 50km (seasonal water levels permitting) of the Chobe River, along the banks of the Chobe National Park. This allows guests to explore many different vantage points of the river. As you drift down the Chobe River and spot incredible wildlife scenes; you’ll be able to completely relax because the wildlife is right in front of you. Ice cold beer or gin & tonic in hand. As a matter of fact; safaris have never been this easy!
Each houseboat comes with a host, a skilled chef for preparing your delicious meals, and also; a talented team of river guides to provide you with the best experience. The entire boat can be booked exclusively, therefore; it is like having your very own private villa on the water. Each houseboat is equipped with a relaxed open-plan lounge, bar and dining area, outdoor viewing deck with loungers, and also; a small plunge pool; showcasing unobstructed views of the African landscape and wildlife.
The Houseboats sail on scheduled weekly departures every Monday and Wednesday for two nights, and Fridays for three nights packages.
The Chobe Princesses depart near Kasane; only a few kilometers from the point where 4 African countries meet namely Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. It is within traveling distance from one of the great wonders of the world; the magnificent Victoria Falls. Chobe National Park has an abundance of wildlife and approximately 120 000 elephants; as well as over 400 species of birds. This makes Chobe an exceptional wildlife safari experience.
Chobe Princess 1 has 3 x Standard and 2 x Superior Cabins. One with a front balcony and the other located on the upper (top) deck.
Chobe Princess 2 & 3: 3 x Standard and 1 x Superior Cabin.
Chobe Princess Standard Cabins have beautiful big windows that slide open to let in those ever-changing river views. Listen to the soft grunt of hippos as you watch for elephants at the water’s edge; all from the comfort of your king-size bed.
Instead of sliding windows, our Chobe Princess Superior Cabins each have their own private balcony. Imagine waking in the morning and stepping out onto your balcony facing Chobe National Park. Later, while the boat is sailing, you’ll have a front-row seat to the incredible landscapes and wildlife on the riverbanks. What’s more, the top cabin has an elevation that’s excellent for wildlife spotting.
