Welcome to Ichingo Chobe River Lodge, where your ultimate fishing adventure begins! Offering you an unbeatable all-inclusive getaway package and the ideal location to experience all that the Chobe has to offer.

If you’re not into fishing or have friends and family joining you – there are plenty other activities available.

The region is renowned for its’ heard of elephant in the free roaming national parks surrounding the island. Your personal guide will pack a cooler, some snacks, and head out on a thrilling game cruise. Chances are, you will get as close as safely possible to any elephant, hippo, crocodile, water buffalo, lion, various buck species, and some cheeky baboons that head down to the river for a splash or drink of water.

Avid birders or early risers keen to head out on a morning birding cruise? You could spot some of the 450+ bird species. Our guides are all locals, with a plethora of knowledge and will spot interesting birdlife as you cruise up the Chobe River.

Want to learn about how the Impalila island community live? Or get involved in one of our many community initiatives? Go on a guided Impalila Island walk, get to know the locals and experience life on the island.

You are on holiday after all, you can decide how you want to spend your days. Kicking back and relaxing beside the pool, is a treat all in itself!

What People Are Saying

What a wonderful experience! Even got a tigerfish in March!! Kenedy and his team are great!

Due to travel contingencies, we were able to spend one night at Ichingo before boarding the Chobe Princess. The hospitality was excellent, as was the food (we are both vegetarian). Seeing the 800 year-old baobab tree was a highlight of the area (we do not fish, so those main featured activities weren't for us). We requested a small boat morning safari, which was superb. Our tented room was comfortable, with a wonderful view of the river rapids below.

It was an awesome experience and the service was first class. We could not ask for better. All the arrangements went well and according to plan! It was like clockwork! The staff were very friendly and helpfull and the food was excellent and more than what we could eat. Nico took us fishing and no trouble was spared for me to land my tiger fish. Kennedy litterally welcomed us with open arms and was greeted by Melissa's friendly smile. They all are such an asset to the Company.
