The lodge is hidden under shady trees on the river banks of the Chobe River with tossing waters and rapids rights in front. The lounge area opens up to the waters and is a perfect place to just relax with a good book. Dawn and Ralph, the owners of Ichingo Lodge give you the feel of a home away from home and host every dinner in the evening, mostly accompanied by an interesting conversation.
The lodge has 8 very spacious tented rooms, situated on the raised riverbanks of the Chobe. Each tent has en-suite toilet and shower facilities. The food here is excellent and prepared with lots of care and to each customers likening.
There are many great activities one can do here, but the highlights are fishing trips on the River for bream and tiger fish either with fly or course, depending on the season and a river safari into the Chobe National Park. Huge herds of elephants, buffalo, giraffe, leopard, lion, kudu, waterbuck, puku, lechwe and impala are amongst others that can be viewed at the water’s edge.
There are a series of good quality tender boats available, all with large motors, including a jet boat for the rapids and rocky areas. Chobe National Park is also bird watchers paradise all year around with more than 400 different species and of which species are not to be found anywhere else in the world. Other activities like mokoro excursions and walks onto Impalila Island can be arranged and cultural visits to nearby villages.
The lodge is booked on an all inclusive basis with accommodation, meals and drinks (no premium brands), activities and park fees.
