Botswana - Ultimate Chobe River Safari Experience

Chobe River Lodge and House Boat Safari Experience

The Ultimate Chobe River Experience

Ichingo Chobe River Lodge

The river lodge is a luxury tented lodge consisting of eight large Meru safari tents each beautifully turned out with its own private balcony overlooking the Chobe River and an en-suite bathroom.

Each tent is positioned to ensure maximum privacy and to allow guests to relax in an environment that is truly distinctive. The main lodge buildings are designed to provide total comfort and include a relaxing lounge, a welcoming bar and a separate open-air dining room. All of these areas are situated under thatch and are built to blend into the scenery amidstthe large riverine trees.

To add to the personal level of service there is a fleet of high quality boats that guarantee that all guests are provided with their own dedicated Guide and boat.

In perfect harmony to the lodge, the safariboats are unmatched in style, elegance and pure comfort and allows you the thrill of overnighting in some of the most scenic areas along the river.

Chobe Princess
Each safariboat has four large twin cabins, beautifully decorated with the focal feature being the
large sliding window that allows you your own personal view of the changing landscapes before
you. The cabins also have an en-suite bathroom, each tastefully fitted with a modern shower,
toilet and hand basin.

About our trip providers and reviews

Our Trip Providers

We carry out extensive company checks on all our providers, over 20 years we have built strong personal relationships with each of them, which assures you of an unparalleled service, great value and the trip of a lifetime.
We have participated in many of the trips found here (we have a nice job) and make our own independent assessments of the services provided, ensuring they meet with our own high standards.

All the trips are supplied by the end provider of that trip.
You may find the same or similar trips elsewhere, usually these are offered by an agent.
We prefer to give you direct access to the trip provider for reasons outlined below:

  1. Best price.
    The price you see here is the direct trip price set by the provider, the same price as purchasing directly with them (which is how it works), there are no added commissions.
    This means you are not paying an agents commission and the provider is receiving their fully budgeted trip cost.
    (agents can demand discounts from providers as well as adding commissions to the providers trip price)
  2. Easy customisation.
    By booking directly with the end provider, making changes is quick and easy.
  3. Fast problem solving.
    On the rare occasion that an issue may arise before or during your trip, by dealing directly with the end provider, problem solving is quick and efficient.
  4. Helping Africa help itself.
    The most straightforward way to assist the economic opportunities and conditions for local people across Africa, is by direct financial interaction with people in Africa. In a nutshell "Tourism".
    This kind of direct tourism gives opportunity to local people.

We limit the number of providers we work with in order to strike a balance between a good choice of trips and to be sure we can honestly recommend the service and validity of each provider.
Because the majority of trips can be customised by the providers, the choice of trip configurations is in the tens of thousands.

Our Reviews

We have 3,000+ reviews for our trips and providers.
All our reviews are fully qualified, we do not take unqualified reviews.
We show all reviews, the good and the critical (very few). Our providers have the ability to respond to reviews and those responses are shown alongside the review.
Acquiring genuine reviews is actually very hard, for our genuine travellers we make this an easy process but many people although satisfied with the service they received do not leave a review.

Many reviews on the internet can be left by an open process with little or no checks.
At best unqualified reviews are worthless, at worst they are misleading. We never take unqualified reviews.

We hope you find a trip to your liking and we are here to assist.

Wishing you happy travels...
