what a trip aboard the Chobe Princess. It really is something everyone must do. Amazing sunsets and food, staff were friendly and the safaris are so much fun, a different experience seeing wildlife from the "less crowded" river.

We spent two nights on Chobe Princess and had a wonderful experience. The boat seems to be a floating living room with awesome service, friendly staff who were also our very knowledgeable guides during our small boat excursions. The chef made delicious meals. They all made us feel at home!

Stayed here for 4 nights in April 2017 (a party of 9). From the moment we were met at immigration by Robert & Cascious we were treated like royalty, nothing was any trouble at all. The facilities are magnificent in such a special location. My 14 year old daughter summed the difficulty of writing a review up very well, when...

My wife & I booked a 7 day holiday at Ichingo Lodge, part of the Mantis Group. The partially enclosed view deck outside our Unit had portion of the balustrade removed (see photograph). That evening my wife fell through the gap onto the rocks below. Her fall was arrested by bushes which prevented potentially fatal fall into the river. Staff...

We spent the weekend on a family reunion weekend. The boat facilities were wonderful, food and service exceptional and all staff warm, welcoming and engaging with guests. Almost faultless. This service comes at a price. This is not a cheap weekend. But we chose this cruise because one of our party is not strong physically and we imagined she could...

Game-viewing from upon the Chobe Riveri is even more spectacular than over land. Waiting for sundawn on a little boat with a nice glass of wine is so romantic! The meals were very good but for us a bit too salty!

We spent 3 nights on the Zambezi Queen at the end of January this year and the pictures, website and reviews do not do it justice. What an experience! We flew to Kasane which is a tiny airport and from the moment we arrived absolutely everything was taken care of. We were taken to the jetty from the airport and...

Ichingo Lodge located on the Chobe River and having access to the Zambezi River is fantastic for fishing and game viewing! The management couple and staff are so welcoming and warm! We had an amazing time and would love to return to this gem of a spot!

We loved the experience of being on the boat. The food was excellent. We enjoyed the speedboat trips and seeing the animals by the river. The tour of the Namibian Village was very interesting. Our only concern was that there was no list of potential activities available. It was up to us to ask where we could go.

Dear Jenny We're delighted to hear you enjoyed your time with us during your stay on our houseboat. Viewing the game from a tender boat is a unique way to experience the wildlife of the area up close and the village tour allows our guests to learn about the culture of Namibia.
