Put your fishing skills to the test on the ultimate fishing safari at Ichingo Chobe River Lodge.

Nestled on the banks of Impalila Island, on the quieter Namibian waters of the Chobe River, Ichingo Chobe River Lodge is uniquely positioned to take full advantage of the Zambezi River, the Chobe River and the interconnecting Kasai Channel with access to some of the best fishing conditions in the region.

You’ll be amazed by our world-renowned waters teeming with Tigerfish and a variety of bream species, African pike, tilapia, catfish and upper Zambezi yellow fish to name a few. You don’t even have to venture too far to win the coveted Ichingo Chobe River Lodge yellow buff, the yellow jersey of fishing. It must be noted that we’re passionate about limiting our impact on the wilderness, and therefore a strict catch-and-release policy is practised.
