Quick Holiday Overview
Experience the Victoria Falls while staying at the 4* Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge, an unspoilt wilderness experience, on the banks of the Zambezi, where guests rapidly become friends.
About the Holiday
Imbabala was originally built in 1987 and first opened in 1988. Despite being completely refurbished over the years, Imbabala is still a small unpretentious safari camp offering a true “African Safari Experience”. Located on a 5000 acre concession, bordering the Chobe Forest Reserve and boasting 14 kilometers of private Zambezi river frontage. The main lodge consists of a lounge, dining and bar area overlooking the swimming pool and a nearby waterhole. The 9 individual thatched stone lodges, all with en suite facilities, accommodate a maximum of 20 guests. There is no access to television at the lodge.
Imbabala’s menus feature fresh, seasonal foods, with most of the salad ingredients and vegetables grown organically in the lodge’s vegetable garden. Coffee, tea and rusks are on offer before the early morning game drive, followed by a full brunch on return to the lodge. High tea is served before the afternoon game drive or sunset cruise, followed by a delicious dinner (sometimes a bush dinner on the banks of the Zambezi River). Weather permitting, meals are served at the dining area under the trees.
The following activities are included:
- Game Drives
Choose from morning, afternoon or night game drives – all conducted in open-backed 4x4 vehicles, perfect for game viewing. Enjoy either morning tea, coffee & snacks or evening drinks & snacks depending on which drive you are on.
- River Cruises
View the wildlife, including elephant and hippo, as well as prolific birdlife from a different perspective whilst cruising on the lodge’s pontoon boat. The vessel accommodates a maximum of 12 guests; drinks and snacks are served as your guide reveals the beauty of the Zambezi River.
Day trips to Chobe, bush walks and fishing safaris are available at additional charge.
The Spa lodge is set away from the main lodge area and is partially open to allow for a soft breeze to filter through whilst one enjoys a pampering. Manicures, pedicures, facials and massages are available on the menu.

Victoria FallsStraddling the western border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, at the point where the Zambezi River drops into the Batoka Gorge, Victoria Falls is justifiably called one of the Wonders of the Natural World.
Famously described in 1855 by the explorer David Livingstone as exuding such power that they must have been "gazed upon by angels in their flight," and named by him for his Queen, the falls are the world's largest, spanning almost 2km (just more than 1 mile) and dropping some 100m (328 ft.; twice the height of Niagara).
The sight of more than 9 million liters of water crashing down into the Batoka Gorge is one not easily forgotten; on a clear day the veil of roaring spray can even be seen from up to 80km (50 miles) away. It is this phenomenon that gave the falls its local name: Mosi-Oa-Tunya -- literally, "the smoke that thunders."
