Lovely and relaxing Great experience sailing down the river. It only sails for a small distance but its fabulous. Staff very friendly and the tenders take you out down the river and closer to shore! Try the fishing - its was a fabulous experience. The imigration procedure is a farce but out of the staffs control! The food was ok...

We stayed 4 nights on the Zambezi Queen which is a 5 star hotel on the water. After going through immigration staff of the boat fetched us and brought us to the boat. Wow, sheer luxury, a magnificent lounge with pub and dining area. The bedrooms are spacious with big windows so when you open your curtains you have a...

Our stay was truly memorable, welcoming, friendly, attentive staff and a beautiful, secluded setting on the banks of the Chobe River. Kennedy was a fantastic host. Comfortable tents with modern bathrooms. We had an amazing guide Robert who took us fishing several times, we were rewarded with a catch each of a tiger fish. You can request a packed breakfast...

Houseboat living is so restful. It was the best food we had in Botswana--the chef was serious about it. Rooms were small but lovely with AC. Staff of five for the eight of us. Public space was perfect--covered area with big dining table, good bar space for alcohol and hot beverages, and lounge furniture. Uncovered outside tables and chairs for...

Sadly, we only stayed 2 nights on the Chobe Princess riverboat. We absolutely loved it and this was THE highlight of our trip. The staff were the best we'd encountered on our trip-- Alfred went out of his way to help us when we had a glitch with returning our rental car. Robert the captain was very friendly and helpful....

We recently stayed at Ichingo Chobe River Lodge and on the Chobe Princess houseboat. To say our time there was probably the best holiday we have ever had, is an understatement. The welcome we got on arrival at the Lodge by Kennedy was to set the scene for the rest of our stay. The huge well appointed, air conditioned tents...

I have been lucky enough to have been on many different game viewing trips through out Africa in my life visiting the Chobe Princess and Ichingo River lodge is far and away the most breathtaking of them all. The Princess is moored most of the time at Elephant bay and gives a unique opportunity to see nature close up.Hippos and...

A lovely experience. So relaxing and enjoyable. It was extremely hot, but there was aircon in all the rooms and we were made very comfortable. We experienced great river safari's, met helpful, kind staff, ate good food, met interesting guests from around the world and enjoyed clean, modern facilities. I'd definitely do it again.
