Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge

The ultimate luxury at Imbabala Safari Lodge

Spoil yourself with a memorable holiday right on the banks of the Zambezi River at Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge close to Victoria Falls where you are guaranteed good value for money in an unpretentious safari camp. This is a true Zimbabwe safari experience with a touch of luxury in an authentic wilderness area packed with exciting activities and enough accommodation for only 20 visitors who love Africa. 

Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge is hemmed in by lush indigenous vegetation, on a riverine fringe of the mighty Zambezi River where Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia and Namibia converge. It’s your chance to unwind in rustic chic accommodation but it’s also your chance to view some of the most amazing wildlife and bird species in the region, in the seclusion of a private National Parks concession. The 5,000-acre concession is proud of its 14 km of private Zambezi river frontage and borders Botswana’s Chobe Forest Reserve, renowned for its massive elephant population.

Find this diverse Zambezi river lodge 80 km west of the World Heritage Site and stay in one of 9 beautifully designed individual stone and thatch chalets with en-suite bathrooms, colourful ethnic décor, woven hammocks and stunning thatched covered decks with comfy chairs for game viewing and river watching.  One family villa has plenty of room for 4 people in twin or double beds. 

Enjoy Imbabala’s thatched main lodge featuring an expansive and beautiful lounge with polished tile floors and open sides to take in the magic of Zimbabwe, an enticing dining room and bar looking out over the splendid waterhole and river, where animals gather in all seasons. 

Dip into the swimming pool during the heat of the day and dine under the charismatic and ancient riverine trees with fellow guests.  Evenings around the fire are evenings that make your holiday to Imbabala Zambezi River Lodge that much more special. 

Get to know the entire environment on boats up the Zambezi to find elephants and hippos and fish eagles and more, get to know the private concession in safari vehicles twice a day and find African wild dogs, lions, leopards and giraffes, kudu and herds of other antelope. Get to know your experienced guides who point out the more than 400 bird species and enjoy meals with you around the boma fire.



Choose to stay in Zimbabwe’s unpretentious Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge located in a private concession within the Zambezi National Park on the enormous Zambezi River. Enjoy a pristine wilderness vacation within the seclusion of a private wildlife area in Matetsi Safari Area, just 80km upstream from Victoria Falls, close to where Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe converge. 

The lodge is a small modest safari camp that offers a true Zimbabwe safari experience with plenty of luxuries thrown in to ensure guest comforts on safari. Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge offers Victoria Falls accommodation for a maximum of twenty guests in nine gorgeously designed stone and thatch chalets. All the rooms have private en-suite facilities with expansive verandas decked with hammocks and they open onto sweeping views of the Zambezi River. The lodge also boasts a family lodge that sleeps four making it an ideal choice for Zimbabwe holidays for families.

Gather in the elegant social hub under shady thatch in a vast colourful and plush lounge with polished tiled floors and a dining area in ethnic colours made for communal laughter and meals after thrilling days out in the wilds seeing birds and animals galore.  Watch animals all day as they drink at the river and a nearby vibrant watering hole. Take time to cool off in the welcoming swimming pool before sundowner game drives then gather in the al fresco eating area that overlooks the Zambezi around a blazing fire with staff and newfound friends.

We love Imbabala for its magnificent chalets, awesome setting on the river and the diverse choice of mainland and water-based activities. Experienced guides are on hand for game drives and walking safaris, birding and exclusive river experiences to explore the Zambezi River by boat. Voyage2Africa suggests additional packages and excursions to Victoria Falls and Chobe National Park after your amazing bushveld experience here in Zimbabwe and book one of our bush beach escapades too if that suits you.
