Me and 18 more friends stayed two nights at Imbali. We were very gladly surprised and amazed since the very first moment. The care of the staff with us was such a high point, African people.
The rooms were fantastic, but my jacuzzi was not working. For me there was no problem because I could bath at someone else´s room. The pond in front of the lounge is just an amazing thing. We were welcomed by 4 or 5 big elephants and all the time there were some animals stopping there: giraffes, warthogs, hienas, impalas, baboons, jackals.
The ranger Oscar was the best! He really tried with us finding the Big 5 but unfortunatelly there was no leopard.
But the highest moment was during a dinner when all the staff entered into the restaurant singing African popular songs. We danced, sang and cryed! Very unique! Shosholoza...
The manager Gerald very polite and attentive.
The food was good but not exceptional!
I would return there always.
