The Zambezi Queen offers 14 tastefully furnished Suites located on the lower and middle decks. All suites feature magnificent views from floor-to-ceiling windows. A private balcony allows you to step outside to experience the African breeze.

Each private space was designed with the African summer in mind and clever use of shutters and air conditioning ensures a cool experience even during times of the year when the temperatures on the Chobe soar. Suites can be configured with either double or two single beds.
