A Chobe river cruise with AmaWaterways is unlike any other. With wonderful wildlife, captivating cultures and national parks galore, this South African river offers the best chance to capture life along the banks of Botswana and Namibia as you sail on-board the Zambezi Queen cruise ship.

Pass the borders of Chobe National Park, home to fauna including trooping elephants, hippos and sunbathing water monitors. Soak up the exciting atmosphere of bustling cities like Cape Town and Johannesburg, spot the Big Five at Kruger National Park, or even compliment your Chobe river cruise with a journey on the stunning Rovos Rail train.

Travelling along the Chobe will allow you to live and breathe these exceptional destinations, whilst enjoying the scenic landscapes and truly immersive towns and villages.

Cape Town

A unique mix of cultures, cuisines and landscapes comes together in perfect harmony in Cape Town. Crowned by Table Mountain National Park, there is just as much opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors as the urban delights. Company’s Garden, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, and Green Point Urban Park are all perfect spots for a relaxing stroll, and elsewhere in the city, the up-and-coming culture is evident in a stunning collection of galleries. Even outside of these you can soak up vibrant colours and traditions in the brightly painted facades of the Bo-Kaap, and the Afro-chic decor of Cape Town's restaurants and bars. This is a proudly multicultural city where Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu and traditional African beliefs coexist, and together they create a truly rich and completely unique river cruise destination.

Johannesburg

Commonly known as Jo’burg or Jozi, Johannesburg is an ever-changing city with a vibrant heart. The trendy neighbourhood of Maboneng is the perfect place to people watch as you enjoy a cup of coffee... or even a cocktail! Fantastic museums and galleries offer insights into both the contemporary arts scene and Johannesburg's troubled past - the Apartheid Museum is a humbling yet essential must-visit. Nelson Mandela Square offers a popular photo opportunity next to a striking statue of the iconic president and activist. If you have time while in port during your Chobe river cruise, travel around 90 minutes outside of Johannesburg to visit the Cradle of Humankind, a 47,000 hectare paleoanthropological site with UNESCO World Heritage status. A huge number of hominin fossils have been found here; some dating back as far as 3.5 million years ago!

Elsewhere on Chobe river cruises

As well as these two iconic South African cities, Chobe river cruises will transport you to breath-taking natural wonders and wildlife-rich national parks.

Feel like a small fish in a very big pond as you stand at the top of tumbling Victoria Falls: the largest waterfall system in the world. Feel the spray settle on your skin as you marvel at the UNESCO-listed 'smoke that thunders' from the Devil's Pool.

Your Chobe river cruise could also take you to Kruger National Park. Here, the majestic Big Five (elephant, lion, leopard, rhino and buffalo) roam alongside other star species including cheetahs, giraffes and zebra. So they do at Chobe National Park, which is famed for nurturing Africa's largest elephant population. Keep your eyes peeled for more than 440 recorded species of bird and see if you can spot the rare oribi antelope.

Indulge your senses on a Chobe river cruise and experience the sights, sounds and scents of the African plains. See wildlife roam freely, immerse yourself in vibrant city life and experience some of the world's most famous natural wonders.
