There are several river cruise itineraries but the one below is my favorite because you travel through some of the most incredible parts of Africa with a great mix of river and land experiences.
Your journey begins with a three-night stay in picturesque Cape Town. Next, fly to Kasane, Botswana to begin your Zambezi Queen safari cruise on the Chobe River. Explore Chobe National Park, home to one of the densest populations of wildlife on the African continent. Spend two nights at the legendary Victoria Falls before flying to Johannesburg for two nights. Then fly to Hoedspruit, located in the game-rich country of the Greater Kruger National Park. Spend three nights at a luxurious game lodge in this premier eco-tourist destination, known for some of the best “Big Five” viewing in South Africa. Experience the thrill of daily game drives, while evenings bring you breathtakingly clear skies. - AMA Waterways.
This river cruise ship is specifically designed for safari river cruising on the Chobe River and offers a sophisticated design to maximize animal sightings. The ship is elegant and intimate with only 28 passengers on board. Enjoy game watching from your luxurious balcony stateroom, or visit the top deck for a beverage, sun bathing and more game watching.
An African river cruise experience is an all inclusive package where you indulge in exclusive activities and cultural experiences. All in a small group setting with individualized attention and an unparalleled level of service.
