Ichingo Chobe River Lodge
ICHINGO CHOBE RIVER LODGE   is situated on Impalila Island in the very northeastern region of Namibia and because of its location can be considered as a Chobe / Victoria Falls destination.
Impalila Island lies at the confluence of the Chobe and Zambesi rivers, which is also the meeting place of the four countries, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The nearest town is Kasane in Northern Botswana and the Victoria Falls are only some 80 kilometers downstream.
ICHINGO is a luxury-tented lodge accommodating a maximum of sixteen people in twin bedded large Meru tents, each with cupboards, tables, electric lights etc, its own private thatched en suite bathroom and balcony. All tents overlook the river with the main lodge buildings being built over the river and consisting of a lounge and bar with a separate dining room, all under thatch and situated under large shady trees.

Game viewing by boat into the Chobe National Park where huge herds of elephants come down to drink together with an extensive array of other game such as buffalo, giraffe, kudu, waterbuck, puku, lechwe, impala, baboons, etc. The evening boat trip, with quiet sundowners on the river surrounded by elephants is an unforgetable experience
Fishing for Tigerfish and Bream in both the Chobe and Zambesi Rivers. There is access to over 100 kilometers of rivers providing excellent fishing in what is undoubtedly the premier Tiger fishing water in Africa. The Lodge is particularly renown for the quality of its guides and their success in landing Tigerfish, especially when fly-fishing.  High quality tackle is available for guest use.
Bird watching is a year round pleasure with over 400 recorded species and a combination of waterbirds and good dry land birds on the island. It is an excellent place to see all the summer migrants from September through to March.
Excursions by Mekoro (dugout canoe) into the small islands, which exist in the Chobe River and form part of the rapid system. The experienced polers are also knowledgeable in all the various bird species to be found during the trip. This is subject to river conditions.
Guided walks on the Island are very interesting as there is a varied ecology and the villages offer an insight into traditional African life. From the top of an ancient Baobab tree one can view the meeting place of the four countries
All activities are personalised and included in the base rate. Exceptions would be day trips to the Victoria Waterfalls, which are undertaken by independent operators.

The lodge also operates a four roomed, eight bedded, luxury Safariboat  - THE ICHOBEZI on the Zambesi and Chobe River systems. This offers two dedicated tender boats with all the activities and hospitality standards of the lodge plus the added excitement of cruising and overnighting in some of the remote areas of the Caprivi.
The Lodge collects its clients by boat from the Kasane immigration office in Botswana for the short trip across the river to the island. Kasane is readily accessible by road from both South Africa and Namibia and in addition there are now frequent flights from Johannesburg to Kasane. Private charters regularly fly directly onto the Island where there is an excellent 1400 meter all weather gravel airstrip.
