This was a fantastic four days with absolutely everything done by Sarah and Jon to make our stay such a memorable experience. It is such a beautiful setting and the wildlife was just amazing. We can't wait to go back! Thanks again Sarah and Jon and special thanks to 'AB' (Abraham) our trusty guide, for his incredible knowledge and humour....

My family and I stayed at Imbabala Safari Lodge at the end of July 2015. This was our third stay at Imbabala and once again did not disappoint. It is a beautiful, friendly and unpretentious camp located on a bluff overlooking the Zambezi River. The sundowner cruises on the Zambezi are great as the guests have the river to themselves....

Our stay at Imbabala was absolutely incredible. The personalisation offered is second to none. The staff are absolutely AMAZING. (Every single one of them!)

The Staff were friendly, and polite. The situation was perfect! We saw some beautiful, memorable sightings! We went on the Zambezi to do some Tiger Fishing. Saw crocodiles, Elephant, Antelope, Giraffe, Hippo, and many different species of birds. Definitely, a Lodge, I would recommend to everyone!

Our stay at the Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge was delightful. The staff went out of their way to provide us with whatever we needed and were very accommodating. The food was great and our game drives provided us with some wonderful animal sightings.

What an amazing experience. It's exactly what I pictured in my head. The Lodge is located on a hill overlooking the mighty Zambezi River. So pretty! The individual chalets were comfortable and very clean. Having a hammock on our veranda was a great place to sit and watch the Impala relaxing in front of us. The staff is extremely hospitable...
