Introduction

Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge was the vision of Ron and Jean White back in 1988 when Imbabala Lodge was first built.

Their dream was of an unspoilt river wilderness lodge where guests rapidly became friends. The White family are legends in Victoria Falls, and their hearts are truly in the African bush.

The Lodge is situated on a 4000 acre private concession in the Matetsi Safari Area, only 80 kilometres upstream from Victoria Falls and not far from where the four countries of Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia and Namibia meet. 

Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge is beautifully positioned on a riverine fringe of the mighty Zambezi River shaded by ancient ebony trees, the main lodge is a charming thatched structure, consisting of a lounge, wildlife reference library with fireplace, dining room and cocktail bar. There is also a swimming pool with sun deck and poolside bar making it the perfect place for anyone to relax and unwind. 

With 11 kilometres of Zambezi River frontage, Imbabala has some of the most amazing game viewing and bird watching opportunities in the region, all in the seclusion of a private National Parks concession. The concession borders the Chobe Forest Reserve which is renowned for its massive Elephant population - herds of up to 1500 elephants have been seen on the floodplains below the Imbabala Safari Camp!

Accommodation

Imbabala Safari Lodge accommodates only 18 guests in stone and thatch chalets with private en-suite facilities. The chalets are individually and tastefully decorated all beautifully positioned with sweeping views on the Zambezi River. Each veranda has a comfy hammock in which you can relax and take in the spectacular view. What a way to spend a holiday!

The lodge has one family room, two double and five twin bedded chalets.

Activities

Activities centre around game viewing and bird watching on morning, afternoon and night game drives by open 4x4 safari vehicle on the Imbabala Private Concession Area.

Exploring the Zambezi River by boat, affords guests exceptional bird-watching opportunities, birdlife is prolific and varied, ranging from water birds to shy forest dwellers. Many rare species such as the African Finfoot are found here - it is a bird lovers paradise. You will look on in amazement at the variety and action all around.

Also on offer at Imbabala Safari Lodge is fishing for the renowned Tiger Fish (serious fisherman are advised to bring along their own Tackle). As is with the birding, this is one of the top spots on the Zambezi and their guides know just the spots to catch the big ones.

Walking Safaris are available by prior arrangement.

All the activities lived up to the hype!
by Alex (Swaziland)
Good Afternoon Boo,
Just wanted to let you know that we are now back in Swaziland and had an incredibly fun time enjoying Victoria Falls! All the activities lived up to the hype and I would like to thank you for all your help in organising a busy but full holiday for us! Everything went smoothly from the moment we arrived to the time we left.
Also wondering where you prefer to have your reviews written?
Thanks again!
All the best

Fantastic Itinerary
by Graham & Janet (United Kingdom)
Dear Boo
We would like to offer our thanks for sorting a fantastic itinerary for our all too short visit to Vic Falls. The cruise on the Zambesi at sunset was a delight and the helicopter flight breathtaking! The pick ups were punctual and staff members were all very smiley, friendly, helpful and good company. The whole experience of the actual Falls and the town itself was outstanding.
We will return! Your company will be our first port of call. Many thanks for a very efficient service.
Best wishes
