Quiet, tranquil spot in a private concession on the upper Zambezi - close enough for the action, far enough for some peace
Imbabala Lodge, built in 1989 by the White family, lies within
the seclusion of a private National Parks concession in Matetsi.
It's nestled in the riverine fringe of the Zambezi, 80km west of
Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and near the border with Botswana. The
hosts, Brad and Annie White, are very much in touch with the safari
industry and are active conservationists.
Game drives in the concession are popular and often provide
fantastic wildlife sightings including lion, painted dog, elephant,
giraffe and kudu. Birding at Imbabala is especially good due
to local habitat diversity and the overlaps of certain species from
the nearby Okavango Delta. The current bird-count is over 420
The atmosphere at Imbabala is relaxed and the pace is gentle.
Visitors can view wildlife as they drift along the Zambezi in a
specially designed pontoon or as they sit quietly in one of the
hides on the floodplain. A professional guide is also available to
track wildlife on game drives.
Imbabala is a really good choice for families or for Vic Falls
visitors who're keen to pop into town, partake in some activities
and then return to the peace, quiet, comfort and gentle hospitality
back at the lodge.
