Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge

Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge is situated on a riverine fringe of the mighty Zambezi River where Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia and Namibia converge. Located 70 kilometers west of Victoria Falls, access is by transfer from Victoria Falls, Livingstone or Kasane. Imbabala offers the chance to unwind but also some of the most amazing game viewing and bird watching in the region, in the seclusion of a private National Parks concession. The 5,000 Acre (2,023 Ha) concession has 14 kilometers of private Zambezi river frontage and borders the Chobe Forest Reserve, which is renowned for its massive Elephant population.

Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge offers exclusive accommodation for only 18 guests in 8 individual stone and thatch lodges with en-suite facilities. Each lodge is beautifully positioned with spacious verandas opening onto sweeping views of the Zambezi River. Imbabala has one family lodge, (Sleeps 4), four double and three twin-bedded lodges. All doubles can be converted to twins on request and vice versa.

The Lodge:
The Imbabala main lodge is a charming thatched structure, consisting of a lounge, dining room and bar area. This offers fantastic views of both the river and a nearby waterhole, which attracts game throughout the year. A swimming pool and al fresco eating area nestle under ancient trees. There are no fences to prevent animal movement, so expect to see game and wonderful birdlife along the river bank as well as in and around the Lodge.

No holiday is complete without good wholesome tasty food. At Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge, our chefs are dedicated to preparing just this. Whether a relaxed African-style spread at our dining area under the trees, an intimate affair served under the stars, or a bush dinner on the banks of the Zambezi, our meals are excellently prepared by our extremely competent chefs. Menus feature fresh, seasonal foods, with most of our salad ingredients and vegetables grown organically from our large veggie garden. Coffee, Tea and rusks are served before the early morning game drive, and a full brunch on guests return to the lodge. High tea is served before guests depart on their afternoon activity. On return from their exciting game drive or Zambezi cruise the guests will freshen up and join us for a delicious dinner around the swimming pool area. The expression… “The Best ever tasted……” is often heard around the table!

The Bush Spa at Imbabala opened in July 2014, and offers a range of spa treatments to guests staying at Imbabala Zambezi Safari lodge in a tranquil, and serene setting overlooking the Zambezi River. There is a qualified beauty therapist on site, and a range of beauty and skin care products on offer.The spa building is set away from the main lodge area, and is partially open to allow for a soft breeze to filter through.

Experienced guides are on hand for all activities which centre around tracking game on morning, afternoon and night game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles. Exploring the Zambezi River by boat affords guests an exclusive river experience. Bird-watching is exceptional, as birdlife is prolific and varied, ranging from water birds to shy forest dwellers.

Walking Safaris and fishing excursions for the renowned Tiger Fish, are available by prior arrangement.

For guests spending a longer time with us at Imbabala, day trips to Victoria Falls and the Chobe National Park are available; additional charges are applicable for all non-scheduled activities.

Children over the age of 7 are most welcome at Imbabala. Children under the age of 7 will be accommodated on request only. As Imbabala is situated in a wilderness area and the lodge is unfenced, it is imperative that all children should be under supervision of their parents or a guardian at all times.
