CHOBE PRINCESSES RATES

With only a small number of guests per houseboat, a stay aboard one of our three Chobe Princesses provides a sense of intimacy and exclusivity for every guest. Larger groups also have the opportunity to book the entire houseboat for their very own private villa on the water.

The Chobe Princesses sail on scheduled weekly departures every Monday (two-nights), Wednesday (two-nights) and Friday (three-nights).

Our rates vary throughout the season, so please take this into consideration when planning your stay.

For further information regarding our rates, itineraries, child policy, activities, payment information and other important details, please select your applicable travel date below.
