    Had the best weekend at Ichingo Chobe Lodge, from the minute we arrived until we left. Met some lovely people and enjoyed our stay a lot. Loved every meal that was freshly prepared, the Saturday night braai was delicious.

    We spent two nights on the Chobe Princess at the end of September 2017, found it a good way to end a very hectic couple of weeks in Africa. Leisurely cruising, with limited activities, average food but did cater for a no diary diet.More
