Chobe Princess Houseboat Location Map

With only a small number of guests per boat and no set itinerary, staying on the Chobe Princess is like being on your very own luxury houseboat. As you drift down the Chobe River and spot incredible wildlife scenes, you'll be able to completely relax and enjoy this intimate river safari experience.

There are smaller 'tender' boats for use on daily excursions that take your fancy - mark off over 450 bird species found in this wetland paradise, try your hand at landing a tiger fish, or capture Africa's beauty and wildlife from the unique perspective of being on the water rather than on the land.  Alternatively, simply laze on a deck chair with an ice-cold drink in hand as you soak up the tranquillity that surrounds you.

When you're on holiday, the food you eat and the meals you enjoy become part of your memories. That's why as a guest on the Chobe Princess, the staff make sure that every one of the 3 hearty meals they serve per day are unforgettably delicious - along with the drinks and snacks provided in between.

At sunrise, enjoy a warming cup of tea or coffee with wholesome rusks and biscuits before departing by tender boat for game viewing and other excursions. After an exciting morning – or even if you've chosen to stay on board and lie in – settle in on the deck for a fresh continental buffet or a hot English breakfast if you prefer. Lunch and dinner are set menus with a single option. Finally, after sipping on a traditional African safari sundowner, sit down to a 3 course evening meal as you’re serenaded to the sounds of hyenas, elephant and perhaps even lion nearby. After dinner, enjoy a coffee and a nightcap before heading to your cabin to round off the perfect day and fall asleep with the calls of wild Africa drifting through the open doors of your cabin.

Each Standard Cabin on board the Chobe Princess is tastefully decorated in a contemporary style, and each has its own private view through beautiful big sliding windows onto the ever-changing landscapes beyond. As you lie on your kingsized bed, spot an elephant grazing on the riverbank nearby, or see a fish eagle diving for its prey. The Superior Cabin has a private balcony, giving you a private front-row seat to the wildlife and incredible scenery.

On the upper entertainment deck, a spacious lounge and bar area encourages you to take time out while there's also a plunge pool that's perfect for a refreshing dip. In addition, tea, coffee and home-baked goodies are readily available at the bar area of the entertainment deck for you to enjoy at any time of day.
