The luxurious Imbali Lodge is nestled on the banks of the N’waswitsontso River within the private Mluwati concession. The concession, covering 10 000 hectares of pristine wilderness, is located in the central region of the world-renowned Kruger National Park. With only three lodges occupying the land, travelers are sure to have an exclusive safari experience.
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.
Imbali Safari Lodge is ideal for solo explorers, couples, and families looking to experience an exclusively South African safari.
Imbali is situated inside the Kruger National Park, on one of only nine private concessions.
The closest airports are Skukuza Airport (1h45m) and HoedSpruit Airport (2h). Guests can take a quick flight from Johannesburg (or from Cape Town) to either of these two airports, and enjoy a complimentary transfer to the lodge.
It is a 7hr self-drive from Johannesburg to Imbali Safari Lodge.

We booked one of the most beautiful trips we've ever had through Safari.com. The service was excellent and uncomplicated. They catered to special requests, booked additional flights, and the accommodation (Simbavati River Lodge) was simply unbelievably beautiful. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we can only recommend Safari.com. We will definitely book our next vacation through Safari.com and recommend it to our friends. Many thanks, Nelia & Catherine!
