The Zambezi Queen, a new 150-foot-long river boat owned by Tony Stern, is a “five-star floating boutique hotel.” It has been designed to provide all modern amenities to the passengers with minimum impact on the environment. The boat offers a luxurious new way to explore the Chobe River in Botswana, which runs through the Chobe National Park.
The luxurious boat is both luxurious and green as it is equipped with solar water heater and uses jet propulsion instead of conventional propellers for better fuel economy. Moreover, the boat doesn’t have any air-conditioners to save on precious energy. All of its 14 suites are appointed with private balconies, modern colonial-style décor and plenty of mosquito netting.
Tours are two or three days, and cover 20 miles of the river, with prices ranging from $800 to $3,600, depending on length, time of year and accommodation.
