8 comfortably decorated Meru style tents have en-suite bathrooms and private balconies.
Each tent has its own assigned tender boat and guide for the duration of the guests stay. This allows for complete freedom to explore the waterways at whatever pace suits you.

The eastern Caprivi is home to large floodplains with its diverse habitats and variety of fishable waters suitable for beginner or skilled angler alike.
The most sort after prize of these waters is the Tiger fish, renown for their ferocious knock and hard fight, which can reach up to 20 lbs. There are a number of bream species plus African Pike, catfish and Zambezi Yellowfish which are valued catches.
Ichingo is known for quality guiding and the number of well maintained boats which include two jet boats that allow the lodge access to the rapids even in low water.
Guests have unrestricted access over 100 kms of fishing waters including the winding Kasai Channel and the streams, islands and backwaters of the Chobe and Mambova rapids.
Ichingo offers excellent all year fishing: The annual flood around January and February saturates the floodplains up river allowing the river to replenishing its fish stocks with fingerlings which are flushed into the main channels when the waters start to recede once more. Tigerfish take full advantage of all this extra food, and this can result in incredible Tiger frenzies during the winter months.
