Chobe River – Ichinga Posted bystevegail August 31, 2019August 31, 2019 Leave a comment on Chobe River – Ichinga Waiting outside customs on Impalila Island in Namibia for our visa, after arriving by boat.. Left Zambia, went into Botswana briefly, stood on Zimbawe soil, crossed the Zambezi, just to get to Ichinga. The Chobe river as we exit the resort on the banks.
