The Ichingo Chobe River Lodge is located in an area that is famous for its large Elephant and Buffalo herds.
At the place where the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers join is the island of Impalila in north-eastern Namibia. The Ichingo Chobe River Lodge is located on Impalila Island, where the borders of 4 countries: Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe, meet.
The Ichingo Chobe River Lodge was the first lodge to be established on Impalila Island.
The word 'ichingo' means spearhead, due to the triangular shape of Impalila Island and its frontal position at the very end of the floodplain where the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers meet.
Ichingo Chobe River Lodge is an activities driven destination and there are a variety of options available during your Namibian Caprivi safari.
Activities at Ichingo Chobe River Lodge include game viewing by boat along the banks of the Chobe National Park; beautiful bird watching; a customised photographic boat; guided walks on Impalila Island; a Zambezi River excursion to see this iconic river; and amazing Fishing for the legendary Tigerfish.
Fishing is a very popular activity at Ichingo, offering both conventional and flyfishing. Outstanding guides, well equipped boats and over 100kms of water including the Chobe, the Zambezi and the Kasai Channel make for ideal fishing conditions.
Enjoy sunset game viewing on the Chobe River by boat to view the incredible sightings of wildlife on the banks of the Chobe National Park. Home to the largest Elephant population, you will be charmed by the huge herds found here, as well as the accompanying Buffalo, Letchwe, Puku, Kudu and Giraffe. Lions and Leopards are also frequently seen in this area.
For birding enthusiasts, you can see over 400 species in this region which combines the riverine forest on Impalila Island and the wetland wonderland of the Caprivi.
Guided walks on Impalila Island area great way to gain an insight into local village life, to view the unique fauna and flora and to marvel at (and climb) our gigantic, 2000 year old Baobab Tree from the top of which you can see where Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia all meet.
The Zambezi River is a must see for first time guests to this area and a sunset boat excursion through the beautiful Kasai Channel to this iconic African river is incredibly memorable.
