Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge

Established in 1988, small and welcoming Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge has undergone a number of facelifts over the years yet retains much of its original charm and character. Located 70km downstream of Victoria Falls, this property boasts 14 kilometres of exclusive Zambezi River frontage and borders Botswana’s elephant-rich Chobe Forest Reserve.   

Guests at Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge are accommodated in 9 stone-and-thatch chalets, fitted with ceiling fans, beds draped with romantic mosquito netting and furnished, personal verandas strung with inviting hammocks where you can pass a warm, lazy afternoon. The huge thatched main lodge contains a lounge, dining room and bar. Also found here is an large outdoor pool with a view as well as a firepit, both encircled by soaring ancient trees.   

Activities from the lodge are designed to appreciate the area’s beautiful scenery, rich wildlife and spectacular birdlife. Track animals on foot in the morning, then go on a game drive in an open 4WD vehicle traversing the wilderness late into the night in search of elusive nocturnal creatures. For rest and relaxation, visit the tranquil Imbabala bush spa set away from the main lodge to ensure privacy and positioned to face the river.
