The boats sail through regions with the highest concentrations of the ‘giants of Africa’, and can take you as close as you can safely experience.
A LAND safari in Africa is exciting, but observing wild game from a private cabin on a floating palace is the stuff dreams are made of.
To live the dream board Pride of the Zambezi or Zambezi Queen, two exclusive cruisers operated by Mantis Collection. They host five and 14 suites respectively and depart from Kasane, Botswana, on a stretch of Chobe River flowing near the meeting points Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. It flows on through Chobe National Park, home of the largest concentration of game in Africa.
Be in mind of David Attenborough as your voyage meanders through areas inhabited by 120,000 elephants, 400 species of birds, countless hippos, rhinos, crocodiles, you name it – skinny dipping not advised!
Close-up game viewing by tender boat or car can be arranged, and to cap it all Pride of the Zambezi travels to within a short distance of Victoria Falls, the world’s largest.
The two floating palaces depart from near Kasane, Botswana, just five minutes drive from the local airport; Mantis drivers will take you directly to the vessels from landing.
