Right Royal River RunZambia

As the first luxury safari cruise ship in Africa, the Zambezi Queen sets the standard rather high. This chic floating hotel boasts panoramic views of the famous Chobe National Park, home to an astonishingly dense population of wildlife. Gawk at elephants from the comfort of your bed, or opt for a small boat excursion for a more up-close view. Don’t fancy a dip with the crocodiles? Instead, why not retreat to the top-deck spa with a glass of Stellenbosch’s finest as a herd of zebra graze just metres away.
