PLEASE NOTE: The Zambezi Queen operates on the Chobe River, which is a natural border between Botswana and Namibia. The Zambezi Queen is based on the Namibian side of the Chobe River. In order to board the boat, you will need to exit Botswana and enter Namibia. The Zambezi Queen team will arrange all boat transfers required, and the process will take around 30-45 minutes from the time of arrival in Kasane. Guests will firstly be taken to the Kasane Immigration Office where they formally exit Botswana, and then will take a 5-10 minute boat transfer to Impalila Island on the Namibian side of the river, where guests will go through Namibian passport control to officially enter Namibia. Please note there is a 250m walk to the passport control office, and assistance is available if required. Please arrive in comfortable walking shoes. After your passport has been stamped, you will take a short boat ride to the Zambezi Queen to begin your Chobe River adventure. PLEASE NOTE: Some nationalities do not require a visa to enter Namibia. Other nationalities require a visa BUT ONLY certain nationalities can obtain a Namibia visa at Impalila Island so please check the Namibian Visa Information for further details to find out more about which nationalities this applies to, otherwise you will need to arrange your visa prior to travel.
