Africa, Impalila Island

LODGE


Ichingo Chobe River Lodge overlooks the Chobe River on the south side of the Impalila Island at the very eastern tip of the Caprivi Strip. Owned and run by the friendly and knowledgeable Ralph and Dawn, it has eight large safari tents amidst the riverine forest. For an offbeat complement to the lodge, you can opt (in advance) to spend a night or two on one of the two Ichobezi Houseboats which ply the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers. The Ichobezi Moli and Ichobezi Mukwae each have four cabins that look out onto stunning views of the river, whilst the top decks have a plunge pool, a bar and lounge, and tender boats for short excursions.

Note that although Ichingo stands on an island in Namibia, it is very close to Chobe National Park in Botswana – and some of its activities are boat trips along the Chobe in search of the park’s game. Ichingo can easily combined into most trips to Botswana – or even used for a short side-trip of a few days when staying in the Livingstone area.

Fishing

The Tiger fish is one of the most demanding freshwater fighting fishes in Africa. At Ichingo you fish in the fast flowing waters of the Chobe and Zambezi, which make the fish particularly active and more ferocious than those found in the calmer waters of Lake Kariba for example. Fishing is by drift baiting and trawling, with fly fishing during August, September and October and spinning when the water levels are low and the tigers are confined to the main river. Bream fishing is excellent during July and August, fished by both spinning and fly.
