Ichingo Chobe River Lodge

The Ichingo Chobe River Lodge is located in the centre of Chobe and is a luxury tented lodge that overlooks the beautiful Chobe River. The main building is built over the river, under thatch and shady trees. It features a lounge with bar area, restaurant with home-cooked meals, indoor and outdoor dining areas and a swimming pool. Our power is supplied by two generators.

Our eight single and double river facing, en-suite Meru style tents are fitted with wooden doors. They are hidden in lush, green pathways with beautiful views over the river. Each tent features cupboards, electric lights, gauze netting fitted to the tents to keep unwanted mosquitos out at night, a large walk-in shower, a balcony.

Ichingo offers 2 or 3 day itineraries, which include a few activities with game viewing by boat to the Chobe National Park, an excursion through the spectacular Kasai Channel to see the Zambezi River and a guided walk on Impalila Island and visit our ancient Baobab tree. Our lodge is known for fishing tigerfish, bream and several other fish. Guests can see huge herds of elephants as they make their way across the river, as well as lion, crocodile, puku, buffalo, lechwe, sable, kudu, giraffe, zebra and occasionally leopard at the watering holes.

Other activities include a sunset river cruise accompanied by ice-cold drinks, or go hiking and see over 400 different bird species, do a Mokoro trip into the small islands of the Chobe River or arrange guided walks to the local villages. Guests can also be transferred from Kasane Immigration by boat to the lodge or fly in; we have our very own airstrip. For the overnight trips, we have two houseboats – Ichobezi Moli & Ichobezi Mukwae – offering a superb opportunity to photograph birds, mammals and have an amazing scenery of nature.
