Zambezi Queen

The Zambezi Queen has been added to my Bucket List & I just had to share it with you.  This unique boat is a sophisticated, elegant experience that has not lost the essence of all that is uniquely African.

There can be few natural wonders as synonymous with Africa’s raw wilderness as the great Chobe River. These waters divide Namibia’s Caprivi Strip from Botswana’s Chobe National Park, and its exotic banks boast one of the densest populations of wildlife on the African continent.


Teeming with life, this National Park sprawls across some 11 000 m of lush African bush, and is home to the largest populace of elephants in the world – currently estimated at roughly 120 000. Along with the elephants, prides of leopard and lion, huge groups of buffalo, waterbuck, roan, eland, sable, giraffe, and, if you are lucky, one of the rare puku, can also be seen. In the river itself watch out for hippo and crocodile, and keep your binoculars at the ready for spotting a rich selection of bird life.

It is on this great expanse of untamed water an adventure unlike any other awaits. Why join he crowds on land-based game drives when you can experience the thrill of it all from your own private suite aboard a luxury 45 meter boat?

The Zambezi Queen operates in 5-star opulence, and is all about pampering, indulgence, and superior comfort.


Whether you are dining on the third level restaurant watching the animals gather at the water at dusk, game viewing from one of the private boats, or attempting to land your first tiger fish, the professional team will be on hand to meet your every need.

With over 20 years’ experience organizing diving holidays worldwide, the Regaldive  team share your passion for diving.

Whether you are just embarking on the sport, or are already an experienced diver looking to further your adventures, Regaldive have the holiday for you. Everything from Learn to Dive packages in the Red Sea to exclusive liveaboard charters in the Galapagos Islands and the Maldives.

Swimming with Whale Sharks SAVE £150!
If you can tread water and snorkel, you can meet whale sharks. This means that almost anyone can experience the incredible encounter of swimming with the largest fish in the ocean!

Regaldive, the UK’s leading specialist dive company, has designed special itineraries offering both divers and non divers an experience of a lifetime, encountering whale sharks. From mid October to February plankton ‘blooms’ develop in an enclosed bay near Djibouti town called the Goubet al Kharab (the Devil’s Cauldron). These plankton-rich waters attract many of the great pelagic species into the area surrounding Djibouti. The bay is very important in the development of juvenile whale sharks, which stay within the safe confines of Djibouti’s coastline.
Each day there will be extensive opportunities for surface snorkelling as well as deeper exploration of the Goubet Al Kharab.Other diving opportunities include: the Obock’s step, wreck of Le Boutre, Ghoubet El Kharab’s strait, the wrecks of Musha, Arthur Rimbaud & Salem Wreck, the Dôme, the Shark Teeth, Red Sands and Ras Eiro.
This whale shark encounter is best experienced with Regaldive’s exclusive whale shark charters in November on the MY Deli liveaboard.  The package is just £1,449 per person based on 2 sharing, FB on the MY Deli liveaboard for 6 nights & 1 night at the Sheraton Hotel (BB), and includes flights from London Heathrow on Ethiopian Airlines, transfers and a minimum of 12 dives and snorkelling.
