Nestled on lush Impalila Island in Namibia, Ichingo Chobe River Lodge is a luxurious tented lodge set in a natural paradise that is home to a large host of wildlife.
Accommodations at the lodge consist of eight large air-conditioned Meru safari tents shaded by a canopy of tall trees. The spacious air-conditioned tents feature a king-size bed, a dressing table, bedside lamps, and chairs. The en suite bathroom comes with new floors, vanities, and a shower with modern fixtures. Every tent includes a private deck where guests can relax, take in the stunning river views, and listen to the call of the fish eagle.
The lodge overlooks the Chobe River from its vantage on the beautiful Impalila Island. The area around the lodge is an incredible maze of waterways, floodplains, and bushveld, and with it comes an exceptional variety of birdlife, animals, and vegetation. The region is known for its huge herds of elephant that can be spotted as they swim across the water. Other animals here include buffalo, lion, crocodile, lechwe, puku, giraffe, zebra, sable, kudu, and the occasional leopard as they gather to quench their thirst at watering holes. Over 450 species of birds have been recorded here including some of Africa’s rarest species like the Pels owl, rock pratincole, African skimmers, and Pygmy geese. Of course, pods of playful hippos and snapping crocodiles can be seen in the river itself.
