The Pride of the Zambezi is an upmarket houseboat berthed on the Chobe river right by the entrance to the Chobe National Park. The accommodation is all en suite and located on the top and lower deck.
The top deck comprises luxury en suite cabins with doors opening on to a large deck with views of the African bush on your doorstep. Also on the top deck are the loungers which are a great place to relax and soak up the sun when the houseboat starts to cruise the famous Chobe and Zambezi rivers. The lower deck has five well appointed en suite cabins, each with superb views over the river. The front cabin features its own private deck. All cabins have electronic safes, fans, mosquito gauze and built-in cupboards. The middle deck is refered to as the heart of the riverboat, with its fully equipped bar, comfortable lounge and dining area. There is also a large jacuzzi and flatscreen television. This deck also has a unique roller shutter system where the entire deck, or part thereof, can be shut down for protection against the elements.
Activities that can be arranged while on board include birdwatching, fishing (both fly and conventional), safari drives and boat cruises into Chobe National Park, mokoro trips and day trips to Victoria Falls and Livingstone.
