Profile

“An exclusive lodge within the world-renowned Kruger National Park, Imbali Safari Lodge continues the safari tradition of a bygone era. Imbali Safari Lodge is the central point within the Imbali Safari concession, offering accommodation in spacious, private chalets each furnished in understated luxury overlooking the N’waswitsontso riverbed.

Imbali Safari Lodge promise guests an extraordinarily ‘special’ safari experience. Just the fact that it is set in its own 10 000 hectare concession area, part of the world-famous Kruger National Park, rich with heritage and traditions. The Kruger National Park offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa and the world. Established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this natural park of nearly 2 million hectares, is unrivalled in the diversity of its life forms and a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies.

With an air of opulence befitting royalty, Imbali Safari Lodge is the perfect African utopia where guests will find serenity. Epitomising traditional African hospitality and personal service to compliment, visitors are guaranteed an African Safari experience of a lifetime.

 

Accommodation

“Accommodating 24 guests in luxury individual suites and each with their own private Jacuzzi or plunge pool, it features large expanses of glass and magnificent wooden decks for better game-viewing. This main lodge has been carefully designed and built, in keeping with eco-sensitive policies, to ensure that there is little impact on the natural environment, as guests will bear witness to artifacts discovered during the building programme. There is also a very obvious presence of heritage! The construction of the main lodge had to be delayed because of the discovery because of the archaeological site, which has now become part of the lodge itself.

All suites enjoy either king-size beds or twin rooms with only the finest furniture and imported linen, en-suite bathrooms with antique baths, air conditioning and spacious decks offer stunning views over the river bed and onto the plains beyond.”

 

Safari

Safari Experience

Safaris/Game drives are conducted in open 4×4 vehicles with experienced and informative Rangers. Alternatively guests can take a guided walk (subject to availabilityor relax at the lodge and enjoy views of the wildlife visiting the waterhole.

Imbali Safari Lodge is situated within the Kruger National Park which boasts one of the most diverse game viewing experiences in South Africa and is home to an estimated 1,500 lion, 12,000 elephant, 2,500 buffalo, 1,000 leopards and 5,000 rhino (black and white).

Lions are scattered throughout the Park, most commonly found in the grasslands, where their favourite prey of Zebra and Wildebeest are found. The “Talamati Pride” are frequent visitors to the waterhole adjacent to the lodge and the immediate area around the lodge.

Leopards are shy animals that hunt at night. Imbali Safari Lodge is fortunately in a high leopard density area and sightings are frequent. Spotting the tawny-yellow body with black rosette spots, as it blends in perfectly into its surrounds is a definite highlight of any nocturnal safari.
