Ichobezi Safari Boats

The two owner-managed Ichobezi Houseboats allow visitors explore the beautiful Chobe area off a safari boat. Ichobezi offers a tailor made stay on the Chobe River.




Staying on the Ichobezi Houseboat will allow you to view the wildlife in the Chobe National Park and along the Chobe River. Try birding or catching the famous Tiger fish. Each group of guests will have the use of their own personal guide and tender boat for the duration of their stay.

Need to Know

Every month in the Chobe offers visitors something unique. If you are looking for a purely wildlife experience then the dry winter months (Jun-Aug) see greater concentrations of game along the banks of the Chobe River. The summer months (Nov-May) sees the birdlife explode with the addition of the summer migrants to the area. The fishing opportunities in the area are excellent both in winter and summer.


Activities offered for the Ichobezi's guests include game viewing off the house boat or smaller tender boat, fishing, birding and photographic safaris. Each group of guests will have the use of their own personal guide and tender boat for complete flexibility.
