The Chobe Princess Houseboats are situated at the confluence of the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers where four African countries meet: Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The area is characterised by abundant wildlife both within the rivers and on the banks. The three Chobe Princesses each offer four luxury en-suite double cabins, decorated in tasteful, modern colours and equipped with ample cupboard space and power outlets for all devices. The cabin windows slide open onto a beautiful open view of the water, and guests are protected from mosquitoes by window screens. Guests have the opportunity to soak up the African sun on the sun deck and are able to spot wildlife whilst enjoying dinner or brunch on board.
The vessels boast fully furnished entertainment areas and plunge pool, perfect for relaxation in the midday sun. Guests can relax at the bar whilst watching the African sunset. Activities involve game viewing (both from the main boat and the smaller tender boats) and guided fishing trips. Fully qualified guides are available to take guests on walks on Impalila Island. The Chobe area is teeming with animals that come down to drink from the river. Guests can expect to see elephants, hippo, crocodiles, buffalo, giraffes and numerous antelope from the houseboat.
