Luxury overnight boat safari

A relaxed, intimate river safari


Staying on board one of the Chobe Princesses is like being on a permanent game viewing vehicle, but with a much higher comfort factor. Situated in the heart of the Chobe region with access to river frontage of the Chobe National Park, we also offer water-based game drives by tender boat, allowing you to experience the enormous diversity and concentration of wildlife up even closer.

The Chobe River offers exceptional game viewing opportunities, especially from March to November when the weather is drier. During this time, animals are more active as they search for food and water. However, summer and spring also provide unique experiences as the landscape comes alive after the first rains. Witness the incredible sight of large herds of elephants swimming across the water, along with buffalo, lions, crocodiles, lechwes, pukus, giraffes, zebras, sables, kudus, and occasional leopard gathering at watering holes to quench their thirst. The Chobe River is also teeming with diverse birdlife and plant species, creating a rich tapestry of sights and sounds.

When staying on the Chobe Princess, you’ll enjoy an intimate and exclusive experience, with only a small number of guests per boat. It’s like having your very own houseboat, providing a tranquil and private setting. Alternatively, you can book the entire boat exclusively, turning it into your own private villa on the water. Drifting down the Chobe River, you’ll have the opportunity to spot incredible wildlife scenes while indulging in the serenity of a river safari.

Each houseboat is equipped with a minimum of three smaller boats for daily excursions. These excursions can be tailored to your interests, whether it’s birdwatching to spot the abundant bird species, trying your hand at fishing for the renowned tiger fish, or capturing the beauty of Africa through a photographic safari. With a small number of guests sharing the tender boats, the day trips offer a personal and flexible experience.

The cabins on board the Chobe Princesses are tastefully decorated in a contemporary style, providing a comfortable and inviting space. Each cabin offers a private view of the ever-changing landscapes beyond. The upper entertainment deck features a spacious lounge and bar area where you can relax and unwind, as well as a plunge pool for a refreshing dip in between wildlife sightings.

On the Chobe Princess, you’ll find a perfect blend of comfort, natural beauty, and personalized experiences, making your river safari a truly memorable and relaxing adventure.
