The peaceful and secluded Impalila Island Lodge is situated in Namibia on an island at the confluence of the mighty Zambezi and Chobe Rivers, at the meeting place of four countries (Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia & Botswana). The Island is at the north-eastern tip of Namibia and lies just 70kms west of Victoria Falls. The immediate environment is an incredible labyrinth of waterways, floodplains and bushveld, and with it comes an exceptional variety of birdlife, game and vegetation. Game viewing is mainly by boat, preferably during the mid afternoon to sunset period, when all of the large animals congregate on the river banks to drink, bathe, play and graze. The area is renown for vast herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as common sightings of lion, hippo, and the rare Chobe bushbuck and puku antelope.
Here are a few special highlights found in this area that we've picked out:-
An area noted for its fantastic wildlife especially in the National Park along the river’s edge
A morning game drive (on the Botswana side of the river) usually yields great game sightings
An afternoon boat cruise is the best way to soak up the special scenery, sunset and view animals from the river
Look out for antelope species like Puku and the rare Red Lechwe
Eight private chalets, elevated within lush riverine forest, offering superb views over either the Mambova rapids or quiet backwaters of the Zambezi River
Each chalet is luxuriously appointed with en-suite bathrooms and a choice of either king-sized, double bed or twin beds, equipped with an overhead fan, hairdryer, mosquito nets and private deck
Lounge and dining area - all built under the canopy of an ancient baobab tree
ACCESS Impalila Island Lodge can be accessed by road, air or boat.
