"From arrival at our beautiful tent chalet, to the sunset river cruise, to the Jeep safaris, the delicious meals, the kind and helpful staff, the spa treatments, the pool, our wonderful guide Abe, this was the experience of a lifetime. And a good value."
"We were just here a few weeks ago and saw all kinds of wild life. It is a really cool place. The guides are really awesome and the camp hosts were very cool. Ask Sarah to say awesome. Ask Richard about the honey badger. Lol"
"This was a fantastic four days with absolutely everything done by Sarah and Jon to make our stay such a memorable experience. It is such a beautiful setting and the wildlife was just amazing. We can't wait to go back! Thanks again Sarah and Jon and special thanks to 'AB' (Abraham) our trusty guide, for his incredible knowledge and humour. The final crowning touch was sitting watching the beautiful elephants on the Zambezi having our own personal chef cook and serve our breakfast!"
"This is a very special place with a delightful mix of a stunning location, very comfortable amenities, great food and an exceptional staff team. We arrived having had a very busy few weeks in Cape Town and Kruger and were immediately in relax mode with a perfect mix of safari drives with the entertaining Richard and time to swim, have a massage and kick back in a hammock for a mid day snooze. A highlight of the trip was the champagne breakfast on the barge as we meandered down the Zambezi River with the hippos and other wildlife on our last morning. I have no hesitation recommending this wonderful place, would return in a heartbeat and really wished we had booked for longer. thank you Imbabala team led by Sarah and David, you made our stay a highlight of our Africa trip."
"My stay at Imbabala was nothing short of magical, Sarah & John made me feel right at home! The team Stan, Richard & the other guests made my stay memorable. I enjoyed everything, from my room overlooking the Zambezi, reading on my hammock, my awesome relaxing massage whilst watching the elephants walk by, the fresh salads, fruits & baked goodies everyday!!! The river Safari on the Zambezi, the game drive (Game & bird life in abundance) & bush dinner were awesome!! I will definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great, chilled, unpretentious holiday & I'm coming back soon! Pumeza"
"The Staff were friendly, and polite. The situation was perfect! We saw some beautiful, memorable sightings! We went on the Zambezi to do some Tiger Fishing. Saw crocodiles, Elephant, Antelope, Giraffe, Hippo, and many different species of birds. Definitely, a Lodge, I would recommend to everyone!"
"My friends and I stayed here towards our last days in Africa. Omg! What a great plan that was the staff and services were great, food was amazing, drinks included as well as laundry.
