African Queen

The award-winning African Queen is approximately 30.5 metres with two decks. It has been beautifully converted by its owners and is one of only a handful of floating hotels that sail along the River Thames. The African Queen accommodates 12 passengers, which ensures a warm and friendly atmosphere onboard.

The barge includes a bar, dining area, outside deck and library.


There is a bar in the barge’s communal area with comfortable seating. It provides a great setting to mingle with your fellow guests and enjoy a few drinks as you travel from destination to destination.


Onboard, you can enjoy the hospitality and cuisine in the spacious dining area. The crew will serve a mixture of traditional English cuisine and delicious Dutch and Cape Malay-style dishes.
