The Zambezi Queen offers its passengers luxurious river safaris and unrivalled experiences within one of Africa's last true wildernesses. Spot elephant and buffalo on land safaris in Chobe National Park, visit a local village or glide along the Chobe River in a traditional mokoro as carmine bee-eaters dart along the banks.
The best time to visit Botswana for game viewing in the delta areas is during the dry winter season from April to October when animals are drawn to water sources. Days are warm and sunny although nights can drop below freezing – in October temperatures can be particularly hot. The Okavango area tends to be more moderate than the Kalahari where seasonal differences are more extreme and activities vary according to wet (November – March) and dry (April – October) seasons.
