Ichingo River Lodge Overview

Nestled on Impalila Island in Namibia, Ichingo Chobe River Lodge is a tented lodge surrounded by breathtaking scenery, abundant wildlife, birdlife and ideal fishing conditions.
Ichingo Chobe River Lodge features eight large air-conditioned Meru safari tents set on a secluded island beneath a riverine canopy on the banks of the Chobe River. Step out on to your own private balcony to listen to the rapids, relax on your sumptuous bed and then head to the dining room or bar for something delicious to eat or drink. Ichingo Chobe River Lodge is also perfect for families and welcomes children of all ages.
Ichingo Chobe River Lodge offers a 2 or 3 night itinerary which includes a variety of activities for you to experience during your stay. These include game viewing by boat along the banks of the Chobe National Park, an excursion through the beautiful Kasai Channel to see the mighty Zambezi River and a guided walk on Impalila Island to visit our famous ancient Baobab tree. Fishing for the legendary Tigerfish is also an activity option.
Because of its unique geographic location, the game viewing and birdwatching in and around Ichingo Chobe River Lodge is second to none. Plus, you can get up close and personal with the wildlife as you glide towards them silently on the tender boats. The lodge’s location is particularly well known for its high quality fishing in over 100kms of the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers, where you can hook a tiger fish, bream and several other fresh water species.

Ichingo River Lodge Rooms

Our large Meru safari tents at Ichingo Chobe River Lodge give you all the excitement of a safari adventure in Africa, coupled with the ultimate in comfort. Your large air-conditioned safari tent comes complete with a king-size bed, a dressing table, bedside lamps, chairs and an en-suite bathroom – everything you’d expect from a deluxe hotel. At the same time, because you’re in a tent you won’t lose that feeling of being in the thick of the African bush, as you listen to the sounds of the Chobe River flowing past you and the call of fish eagles in the distance.
Recent upgrades to our safari tents mean that they’re now all air-conditioned, so you get welcome respite from the African heat which means you can truly relax and unwind. Our bathrooms have all been recently renovated with new floors, vanities, shower heads and taps so you don’t have to miss out on modern luxuries while you’re on safari.
