great Chobe River divides Namibia’s Caprivi Strip from Botswana’s Chobe
National Park, and the river’s exotic banks boast one of the densest
populations of wildlife on the African continent. After boarding your
home for the next three nights — the luxurious Zambezi Queen — embark on
the first of many game-viewing cruises from small boats that allow you
to get close to the elephants, crocodiles and hippos that call the river
home. When you’re not on safari, take a dip in the pool, enjoy a
relaxing siesta, tour a local village by canoe or even do some fishing.
