Built on the banks of the Zambezi River, Imbabala lies at the intersection where Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Zambia meet in effortless harmony. 70 kilometres from Victoria Falls town, guests reach the lodge through vehicle transfers, ensuring that this piece of indulgence is kept secret and pristine.
Lodge and Accommodation
First modelled and built in 1987, from the Lodge’s opening to present time, refurbishments have maintained the charm and charisma of Africa within the camps design, whilst instilling the virtues of luxury and expansive comfort. The lounge, dining room and bar are conveniently located for easy access by guests, while the swimming pool is the ideal place to savour the afternoon light. From just about each room of the lodge, you’re bound to see a plethora of game, moving towards the watering hole.
Only 20 guests are accommodated at a single time at Imbabala. The stone and thatch abodes hold en-suite facilities, including a shower. Patios open up onto the vistas of the 5000 hectares of concession land and 14km of unimpeded Zambezi River. One of these suites is a family lodge, sleeping up to 4 people. The 2 Double Lodges and 6 Twin Bedded Homes complete all the facilities available.
With ceiling fans and mosquito nets draped over luxurious beds, you’re guaranteed a peaceful rest each night. Due to the unfenced borders, however, only children over the age of 7 years old are allowed at Imbabala.
Activities and Wildlife
The thatched lodge is unfenced, allowing nature in. This also gives Imbabala an air of thrilling vitality. There’s nothing more real than the delight of knowing that wild animals are always near at hand.
Additionally, guests have the option of game drives, going on a river safari, fishing the Zambezi for Tiger fish and nature walks where birds are as abundant as they are colourful. The vehicle safaris happen in the morning, afternoon or evening in 4×4 equipped vehicles.
For guests looking to unwind, the Imbabala Bush Spa is where you’ll rekindle the rest you’ve been seeking. With views overlooking the Zambezi, you’ll never be too far away from the action, either.
