Trip of a lifetime, we celebrated my birthday and had 2 boats filled with friends. The staff service and accommodation was exceptional. We were treated like royalty. We thoroughly enjoyed the fishing and game, only regret is that we did not hook a tiger fish! We will be back.

Ichingo Lodge: Friendly reception. Rooms were very comfortable. Catching a Tiger fish was definitely a high light. Beautiful sunsets and birding. Zambezi Queen: What an experience. 24 hour, 360 degree view of animals and birds. Friendly staff and wonderful clean environment.

We had an amazing 2 days on the boats. We were able to get up close to so many wild animals. The boat driver / guide was very informative. We had nice snacks and drinks while out sightseeing, and the main meals were delicious.

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.
