"Ichobezi Houseboat on the Chobe River"

3 nights Arrived 16 Sep 2012
"This was a very good way to start our holiday with a relaxed routine on the house boat and in the excursions by the small boats.

A very successful fishing expedition in the river near Kasane.

The staff were excellent. Parish and John as the guides operating the boats with Ernest in charge and Vincent the chef.

When in the small boats you get a very different view of the wild life along the river banks than from the house boat or from a vehicle on land." See all these reviews: 9n in Botswana; 3n in Zambia

"Ichobezi Houseboats review"

3 nights Arrived 16 Sep 2012
"A relaxing way to start a safari trip after a long journey to Africa. Food and attention was excellent and we had the boat to ourselves (six of us) which was nice. It is also a way of seeing water and bird life from a different perspective. The early mornings from the deck of a moored boat was great for viewing hippos, elephants and other wildlife coming to drink.

The staff were fantastic and food was very good. They came up trumps for Jean's birthday with champagne and cake at no additional cost. Fishing was from small boats was also very good with five out six of us catching good size fish." See all these reviews: 9n in Botswana; 3n in Zambia

"Ichobezi Houseboats review"

2 nights Arrived 19 Jun 2012
"We had a marvellous time. We were the only guests for most of it! The staff were great, the food excellent, and the service could not have been better. The top of the boat had been refurbished, but I think the rooms, especially the bathrooms would benefit from a a refurbishment. However, no problems.

Harris took us on two boat drives, and he was outstanding. As well as knowing all of the birds, he managed to to get us a sunset close-up viewing of elephants swimming the river!

The two days was a great experience and a contract to the rest of what we saw in Namibia." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe; 1n in South Africa

"Wonderful Ichobezi Houseboats!"

2 nights Arrived 20 Sep 2011
"Words failed all of us, which was a surprise as non of are usually short of something to say. Larry, the manager, and all his crew couldn't have been better. It was the most magical experience and none of us wanted to leave.

The cabins were lovely, the food, thanks to Eustace, the chef, was exceptional, we all wanted to bring Eustace home with us! The trips on the river by tender, to see wild life, were all excellent. The level of comfort was very high. The scenery, covered by elephants, was extraordinary.

Everyone should have this experience.
We can't wait to go back, and for longer!" See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia
