Moving along the banks of the great Chobe River, Zambezi Queen is a 5-star, 42-metre long luxury houseboat offering unparalleled sophistication in one of the most remote locations on the planet. Best of all, as a guest on the vessel, you can enjoy a truly unique and adventurous river safari holiday while still being surrounded by complete comfort and elegance.

Each of the 14 suites on Zambezi Queen features air-conditioning and your own private balcony, where you can enjoy unobstructed views of the Chobe River and African landscape beyond. Wake up to the sight of an elephant drinking from the river, or watch a fish eagle take flight – all from the comfort of your own luxurious bed.

Unlike a land-based lodge, Zambezi Queen navigates roughly 25km of the Chobe River, allowing you to explore different vantage points and enjoy unparalleled game viewing. In fact, the banks of the Chobe National Park boast one of the densest populations of elephant on the African continent – estimated at approximately 120 000. The Park is also home to a large number of buffalo, leopard and lion, along with a variety of antelope and abundant birdlife.

Celebrated South African fashion designer Jenni Button created the luxury houseboat’s classic yet contemporary interior, using understated tones that make the wildlife on the banks of the river the star of the show. And, just like at any contemporary hotel, you can expect first class service at every turn. Whether you’re enjoying a gin and tonic on the upper deck at dusk or attempting to land your very first tiger fish, our highly experienced team will be on hand to meet your every need.

Waterberry Zambezi Lodge, on the banks of the Zambezi, is 30 minutes from Livingstone and 40 minutes from Victoria Falls. A small, friendly and informal lodge with just seven rooms, it’s the perfect setting for visiting the amazing Falls and enjoying the wide range of activities around Livingstone.

The lodge was built 25 years ago in classic style and has seven thatched cottages set around sweeping lawns with a central restaurant, viewing lounge and deck. All rooms are en suite, with air conditioning, ceiling fans, mosquito nets and private terraces.

The real beauty of Waterberry is that it is within easy reach of Livingstone and the Falls, but well away from helicopters and microlights and the general buzz of a busy town. Guests usually spend at least one day around the Falls and the town to experience the activities there and then choose to stay at the lodge, enjoying what Waterberry has to offer – river activities (cruises, island picnics, fishing) and amazing birding with top class guides. A highlight of many visitors’ stay is the village visit to a completely uncommercial local village where many of the staff live and where Waterberry has built and manages the local pre and primary schools.

The new Univisa between Zambia and Zimbabwe makes travel between the two countries cheap and easy, so guests can easily visit both sides of the Falls. Waterberry is also within easy reach of neighbouring Botswana and Namibia.

Waterberry is a four star lodge that aims to over deliver on every aspect – excellent food, friendly staff, comfortable rooms – and is entirely dedicated to making every guest feel special. That’s why Waterberry is No1 on Trip Advisor for Speciality Lodging in the area.
