A wonderful alternative to being bounced about on dusty roads, African River Cruises offer the opportunity to see some of Africa’s most stunning landscapes; hippos, crocodiles and many other amazing animals from the tranquil serenity and cooler setting of a boat.

African River Cruises – The Zambezi Queen

For those wishing to combine ultimate comfort and luxury with African River Cruises, a Chobe River cruise on the Zambezi Queen is the perfect choice. Designed specifically for Chobe River cruise safaris, the Zambezi Queen features 14 spacious balcony staterooms; an air-conditioned top deck complete with a lounge, bar and dining room; pool area and plenty of space perfect for sunbathing and, thanks to the Queen’s sophisticated design, maximised opportunities to watch game. Passengers also have the opportunity to explore the river’s banks, enjoy board games or read a good book in the Zambezi Queen’s library.

African River Cruises – The Okavango Delta

Should the chance of seeing lechwe (aquatic antelopes adapted uniquely to their world of water) peacefully grazing; marsh bucks swimming in the river or Pel’s fishing owls swooping over the Okavango Delta mean more to you than comfort and utter luxury, a mokoro (type of canoe propelled through the Delta’s shallow waters by a person standing in the stern pushing the boat ahead with a pole) excursion at Nxabega could be the answer. You can see miniscule frogs; jewel-like kingfishers and stunning pale-pink lilies, as well as buffalo, elephants and lions here. With a bit of luck, you may even spot a gorgeous leopard climbing a tree.

African River Cruises – Selous

Another possible option is to cruise the Rufiji River, experiencing the undisturbed natural beauty and diverse wildlife of the Selous Game Reserve from the comparative comfort of a river boat. With no permanent human habitation or structures permitted and all human entry carefully controlled by Tanzania’s Natural Resources & Tourism Ministry, Selous Game Reserve is home to larger numbers of savannah-dwelling wildlife (including crocodiles and hippos; elephants, cape buffalo and African wild dogs, for instance) than any other national park or game reserve in Africa.
