Zambezi Queen

Sailing the Chobe River of South Africa

The beautiful Zambezi Queen was specifically designed for safari river cruising on the Chobe River and offers a sophisticated design to maximize animal sightings.

Responsibility towards the environment forms the foundation upon which this eco-boat was built. A water jet propulsion system replaces the conventional propeller system, causing no damage to the river bed.

The 28-passenger Zambezi Queen offers a sophisticated onboard experience. Your comfort is ensured when staying in any of the 14 air-conditioned balcony staterooms (which range from 215 to 300 square feet) all decorated in contemporary style. The air-conditioned top deck of the ship offers a dining room, lounge, bar and pool area for your comfort.

This is a Gay/Lesbian Group.  Instead of taking over the whole ship, this group will range from 10 to 250 travelers. You'll have an opportunity to meet the entire group at a private cocktail party early in the cruise.  While they don't offer the complete gay experience, groups can make it easy for you to find new friends of common interests, excursion/party connections, or future vacation companions.  

Since they are smaller, gay groups can offer a much broader range of places, locations, and interests than the all-gay vacations. While all-gay vacations offer a limited number of itineraries and a few ships or resort experiences, gay groups can offer much wider opportunities. You'll find more interesting ships, more exotic resorts and more available dates with gay groups. If onboard or resort amenities, exotic locations, and great values hold the greatest interest to you, gay group vacations should be on your list of considerations.
