"Different way to see the Chobe"
Liked having own dedicated boat and guide for transfers and excursions.
Service on the houseboat was excellent. How did they share out all the work? Cabin small but spotless, if a bit hot, and bed very comfortable." See all these reviews: 10n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
"Relaxing way to tour Chobe Riverfront"
Only had one night so activities were limited. The staff are very knowledgeable and always able to help you identify the bird you just took a picture of.
The game excursions on motorboats is also a nice way to discover the park.
You're on a boat so the rooms are smaller but still very comfortable." See all these reviews: 6n in Namibia; 5n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia
"Great water based time on Ichobezi Houseboat"
The food, prepared on board by a dedicated chef, was quality restaurant standard.
Although late May is not supposed to be the prime time for game viewing we had no lack of animals or birds to keep us constantly entranced. We even managed to catch a few tiger fish." See all these reviews: 10n in Botswana; 4n in Rwanda; 2n in Zimbabwe
"Wonderful bird and animal life"
"Fantastic experience on Ichobezi Houseboat"
The guides were very knowledgable especially about the bird life . They did everything possible to ensure we experienced everything on the Chobe River while always seeking our input to ensure that they were meeting our needs. Guides Martin, Morgan and Vasco.
Chef Vincent prepared excellent food and even prepared a birthday cake for one of our group.
We were quite surprised at the quality and variety of food given the obvious limitations on the boat and cooking for a different culture." See all these reviews: 10n in Botswana; 4n in Rwanda; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Ichobezi Houseboats review"
"A fantastically relaxing way to see wildlife!"
We came down with shocking colds while staying here and were largely confined to quarters, however, this didn't matter as we saw masses of elephants, hippos, buffalos, impalas, crocodiles, Lady Lechwade deer and kudu without even getting out of bed due to having the (only) guest-room with its' own sliding picture windows to a deck.
An excellent alternative to spending weeks bouncing around in a safari vehicle! Would recommend everyone to include this experience in their safari itinerary." See all these reviews: 5n in Botswana; 5n in Rwanda; 3n in Zambia
"Review of Ichobezi Mukwae"
The only area in need of improvement is the provision of some form of insect screening in the dining area in the evening. There are a number of inexpensive options on the market" See all these reviews: 16n in Botswana
"3 days of complete relaxation"
Quirky - comfortable accommodation, nice food, friendly and well trained staff and interesting fellow travellers.
An afternoon spent reading a book whilst ensconced in the small "cold tub" on the front deck with elephants casually wading across the river in front of us will linger long in the memory.
Even managed 9 Holes at "Chobe Golf Club which our captain was only too happy to arrange for us" See all these reviews: 9n in Botswana; 7n in Mozambique; 1n in South Africa
