The detail

Imbali was designed to be conscious of its carbon footprint on the environment and as a result, has successfully managed to offer a luxurious lodge without compromising on safari traditions.

Imbali Safari Lodge boasts twelve spacious private Suites. The suites are reminiscent of a 1900s African safari, with finely crafted furniture and large French door that run the length of the room. Each suite features a king-size bed, a lounge area with fireplace, en-suite bathroom with a vintage claw-foot bathtub and full windows that off views of the riverine bush, luxury bathroom amenities and bathrobes, an expansive deck that overlooks the Nwaswitsontso river or savannah grasslands, and outdoor pool to round off your safari experience.

The lodge facilities include a dining area, lounge area, sparkling swimming pool, in-room spa treatments, and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Enjoy morning and late afternoon game drives conducted by highly skilled guides in open 4 x 4 vehicles. For the more adventurous traveler, guided bush walks can be arranged by prior arrangements.

Fantastic travel agent for African safari family trip!
Wow! Shann was and is fantastic! She figured out a way to make our entire trip work. We are going on a 2 week trip to South Africa and Botswana. She really helped tie it all together as a wonderful, cohesive trip. She is super nice and super smart and very knowledgeable. She is also flexible and thoughtful, etc., etc. When the chips were down (and we literally were considering pulling the plug on the whole trip), she found a way to make the entire itinerary work and got us excited about our wonderful adventure! Highly recommend!
