Ichingo Chobe River Lodge


Ichingo Lodge is on Impalila island on the Namibian side of the Chobe river.  It is very private and tranquil on the island.  The rustic look of the lodge provides a great atmosphere of style and comfort.

This is the ideal break for families, couples and groups. Visitors love the lounge, bar and open-air dining room area set above the Chobe River. Moreover, the safari activities on water and the opportunity to visit local villages nearby make this a unique location.

Accommodation is provided in 8 Meru-style safari tents – with air-conditioners! All the tents have newly-renovated en-suite bathrooms and private viewing decks. You can expect a true luxury hotel experience with king-size beds, dressing tables and bedside lamps. You also feel like you’re truly in the African bush with the sound of the river flowing past and fish eagles in the background.

For families, there is the option of a family tent which has an adjacent children’s tent, with two bunk-beds for up to four children under 12, plus an en-suite bathroom.

Ichingo is, in fact, the sister lodge of the Chobe Princess Houseboats. If you want the perfect getaway, then it would be a good idea to combine a few nights stay at the lodge with a trip on one of the houseboats.



To get to the lodge you have to take a  boat transfer from Kasane immigration. Ichingo is a water based lodge, therefore the lodge does not offer game drives as a scheduled activity. Activities that guests can expect are for example boat cruises, guided village tours, birding, and fishing. Nevertheless, game drives can be arranged at an additional charge if guests request this.
