Namibia Safari

The Ichingo Chobe River Lodge and Chobe PrincessĀ Safariboats makes the ideal combination to discover and explore the Chobe and Victoria Falls.

Staying at either Ichingo Chobe River Lodge or on the Chobe Princess Safariboats (or even a combination of the two) will allow you the freedom and access to view the wonderful wildlife provided by the Chobe National Park; to mark off the over 450 bird species found in this wetland paradise; to try your hand at landing a tigerfish on a fly rod; or to capture the beauty on one of our photographic safaris. We are owner managed and we pride ourselves on our ability to tailor make your stay with us. Each group of guests will have the use of their own personal guide and tender boat for the duration of their stay in order to participate in any of the activities at your own time. This means a totally flexible and relaxed holiday while you get to know this ultimate Chobe destination.

About us

Almost twenty years ago we were fortunate enough to be able to pursue our dream of building and operating a special type of exclusive lodge in a unique part of Africa. Ichingo Chobe River Lodge was the result, right on the Chobe River at the confluence with the Zambezi River, – a perfect setting and place to live. We never looked back as we constantly made new friends, many of whom continue to return time after time.

In order to enjoy the beauty of the whole area even further, we then built and successfully launched the two Luxury Safariboats, giving guests a great new opportunity to explore the rivers, channels and floodplains that make up this very special corner of Africa. We hope that you too will join our family at the River Lodges for a truly personal experience which will exceed all your expectations.
