We had a discussion today in the office about the popularity of river cruising in Europe, and how there don’t seem to be similar options on other continents. The segment is growing in Asia (especially Myanmar) and it’s getting some traction here in the USA with some recently-announced launches. But how about Africa? What’s there?
A few years ago we took an African River Safari on the Zambezi Queen, a 14-cabin luxury river cruiser that’s based on the Botswana and Namibia borders. It was a very interesting trip and it felt more like a floating boutique hotel than a river cruising vessel. But the game sightings on the shore of the Zambezi River were excellent (especially the elephants) and the comfort level on the boat was sublime. Great cabins, good food and drink, and expert guides and activities made the trip a huge success.
If you’d like to experience the Zambezi Queen yourself, we’ll show you the way. Get in Touch and our safari partners can hook you right up!
