Very comfortable and great food. Despite not being in the correct season for the best fishing all of our party caught fish between 2.5 to 5.5kgs, in the most part because of the excellent guides. Highly recommended and good fun, The staff go out of their way to accommodate any request.

From the moment we had to get into a river boat with our luggage to go to the border post up a dirt track to the return trip a couple of days later, I had fun. Arriving at the lodge by boat, through croc infested water, rocks and rapids and all the bird life around us was enthralling. I was... More

After traveling through Botswana on a self-drive, it was such a tranquil encounter to spend one night on Ichobezi houseboat, wish it could of been longer! It was great to take a break from the sand and vehicle to complete relaxation floating on the Chobe River, lazing like a lizard in the sun, watching beautiful wild life pass by. We... More

We stayed two nights at Ichobezi Safari Boat. Room was ok. Safe in the room did not work. Staffs were good and food was good. Having my wife vegetarian, they cared about her food. Also was good you can do boat safari at your own time. Only problem was there is no air condition so it was hot in room... More

We had a night at the lodge and 2 nights on a houseboat and thoroughly enjoyed both experiences. The lodge provided very nice meals and it was great to have pre dinner drinks in the communal area watching the rapidly flowing river only metres away! Our tent was delightful - very comfortable and secluded with a view of the river... More

What a wonderful place! Norman and Maritza make you feel like family! The tents are quaint, but very well-appointed. The grounds are beautiful, with lots of different amazing trees and shrubs. Our Guide Anton, was very special. He took us on beautiful set set cruises. We did see many elephants and hippos, but he also pointed out so many bird... More

I stayed 2 nights, 3 days. Unfortunately I let my travel agent book this. I stayed t the river lodge (not on the houseboats). I massively overpaid and tried to cancel when I realised but no cancellation allowed so I went. I did not get what I expected (river trips, fishing, game drives). I got the fishing almost exclusively in... More

The Ichobezi Safari boat, was a once in a lifetime experience. Whether it was watching the sunset while drinking cool beverages on the top deck, fishing for tiger fish on the Chobe or going to experience and visit a Namibian village, we had a great time. It wasn't particularly cheap, but it was worth it! The only thing that is... More

Have just returned from 3 nights on the Ichobezi House boats and can not recommend this enough. Small and intimate with a max 8 passengers this is the best way to enjoy Chobe. From pick up in Kasane to the transfer though Namibia customs and to the boat all went flawless. Each room has its own small skiff that is... More

We stayed on the Ichobezi Houseboat for three nights and could not have enjoyed it more. Having your own boat to explore the river is fantastic and made for some incredible photographic opportunities especially thanks to our guide Martin who seemed to know many of the fish eagles on the river personally! The sunsets and sunrises were awesome and the... More
