River Cruising - Africa
A river safari cruise on the Chobe river in Botswana is a unique way to view wildlife in Africa. These cruises are usually aboard the Zambezi Queen (an upscale boat) or the Pride of Zambezi (a houseboat), which are chartered by the various cruise companies operating in this area. Cruises are generally 2 to 4 days, and are the perfect addition to a Southern African safari trip.
The other cruise option in Africa is the Nile in Egypt. Cruises are the ideal way for you to experience the Nile river, and the monuments which line the shore. The best time to cruise the Nile River is from October to April. Cruises vary in length from 3 to 7 days.
