AmaWaterways’ New Africa Boat Touted by Jack Hanna

AmaWaterways, which plans to start Africa river cruise-tours this summer, says that the boat they are chartering was recently touted by zookeeper and travel show host Jack Hanna. The 28-passenger Zambezi Queen was featured on “Jack Hanna’s Into The Wild.”

“I highly recommend the Zambezi Queen,” Hanna said. “It’s a must. Anyone that’s looking to cross something off a bucket list or a way to travel in Africa, this is the way to go. From dining to the resting area to the accommodations and the wonderful staff and riverboat guides that get you up close to the wildlife, everything is top-notch and beyond five star. I’ve done this for 26 years now and this has been the epitome for me and my family to be on this magnificent vessel.”

AmaWaterways’ African cruises include the 16-day “Stars of Africa,” the 16-day “African Sunsets” and the 19-day “Golden Trails of Africa.” The tours include morning and afternoon game drives, beach picnics, wine tours, and visits to local museums such as the Huguenot Museum or Ngorongoro Archaeological Museum. Guests also will experience tribal dancing and visits to local villages.
