We're so glad that we chose Imbabala to guide us through Zimbabwe.
Impala is located around 70km from Victoria Falls, just by the border of Botswana, making it perfect for day trips to Chobe and being right in the thick of game territory.
The lodge itself has uninterrupted views of the Zambezi which makes drinks taste better and the sunsets nothing short of spectacular.
The room (honeymoon suite especially) has all the amenities that you'd like to come home to - deep bathtub, outdoor shower, comfortable bed and a relaxing deck to soak in the surroundings.
Game drives around the lodge were a little hit and miss, however cruising down the Zambezi was always fantastic and game rich. We had encounters with elephant, hippos, crocodile, giraffe and of course many warthog and impala.
We must send our regards to the fill-in manager who rushed us to the speedboat when elephants were crossing the Zambezi directly in front of the lodge - you really just had to be there.
The staff, Stan, Richard our guides, Himmel the manager and Jeffery our chef were the kindest people and truly made our stay more memorable.
Choose Imbabala, I know you won't be disappointed.
