This was a great place to stay and a perfect way to experience the area. Ichobe lodge is out of the Disney-like atmosphere of the large lodges across the river and provided a much more intimate experience of the area. Guides and staff were friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. Highly recommend this lodge.

Spent an amazing three days on one of the Chobe Princess' with 5 friends. The staff were all wonderful, food incredible (although not so keen on the bream!), and a real bonus that no one else joined us except the first night!! Amazing game viewing from the boat, and during the morning/afternoon trips on the smaller boat. Never seen so... More

It is difficult to imagine a more perfect retreat anywhere else in the World.

Overall experience very good, enjoyed the excursions in the smaller boat. Service very good by staff and staff very friendly. We would certainly recommend this type of game viewing to friends and family and we are already planning a return trip, the only negative we have is that the stay on the boat was not long enough.
