The time we had in Kruger, staying at Imbali - was the highlight of our trip to Africa!
We could not have chosen a better place to stay.
Rooms were lovely, jacuzzi on the deck was a great added bonus!
Great location with a little waterhole opposite the main deck (where you eat your meals) lots of animals randomly popped by for a drink.
Staff were funny and professional and very welcoming.
Food was fantastic.
Our guide Ossie (Oscar) was absolutely amazing. We saw the "Big 5" in a single day. Ossie was constantly tracking and making sure he found the animals. We were always the first to sight the animals. Another great thing about Imbali, is that there are only 2 other lodges on the same concession, so on a sighting we never had more than another two jeeps turn up.
We were lucky enough one night, to hear lions making a kill, the next morning we were taken straight to the site where the 4 male lions where still devouring the buffalo carcass. Very close up view and what an amazing experience!
Highly recommend Imbali :)
