General

Imbali Safari Lodge is an exclusive lodge within the world-renowned Kruger National Park, continuing the safari tradition of a bygone era. Imbali Safari Lodge is the central point within the Imbali Safari concession, offering accommodation in spacious, private chalets each furnished in understated luxury overlooking the N’waswitsontso riverbed.

Imbali Safari Lodge promise guests an extraordinarily ‘special’ safari experience. Just the fact that it is set in its own 10 000 hectare concession area, part of the world-famous Kruger National Park, rich with heritage and traditions.

Child Friendly Lodge

The Kruger National Park offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa and the world. Established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this natural park of nearly 2 million hectares, is unrivalled in the diversity of its life forms and a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies.

With an air of opulence befitting royalty, Imbali Safari Lodge is the perfect African utopia where guests will find serenity. Epitomising traditional African hospitality and personal service to compliment, visitors are guaranteed an African Safari experience of a lifetime.

Safari Experience at Imbali Safari Lodge

Safaris/Game drives are conducted in open 4×4 vehicles with experienced and informative Rangers. Alternatively guests can take a guided walk – perhaps you would rather relax at the lodge and enjoy views of the wildlife visiting the waterhole.

Being situated is situated within the Kruger National Park which boasts one of the most diverse game viewing experiences in South Africa and is home to an estimated 1,500 lion, 12,000 elephant, 2,500 buffalo, 1,000 leopards and 5,000 rhino (black and white) – Imbali Safari Lodge promises a safari of a lifetime.

Lions are scattered throughout the Park, most commonly found in the grasslands, where their favourite prey of Zebra and Wildebeest are found. The “Talamati Pride” are frequent visitors to the waterhole adjacent to the lodge and the immediate area around the lodge.

Leopards are shy animals that hunt at night. Imbali Safari Lodge is fortunately in a high leopard density area and sightings are frequent. Spotting the tawny-yellow body with black rosette spots, as it blends in perfectly into its surrounds is a definite highlight of any nocturnal safari.

Day and Night open 4 x 4 Safaris

All the Safaris are conducted in open Land Cruisers to give you that sense of freedom but yet with safety in mind. All guided Safaris are led by qualified field guides to help you understand the smaller intricacies of the bush. Game viewing is not just about the big and scary animals out there.

Bird Watching

Our guides are more than happy to share their unrivalled knowledge of our feathered friends with our guests. There is so much to learn about birds on our Concession. From the fierce Marshall Eagle to the smallest and most delicate Blue Waxbill.

Self Drives

Enjoy the wonders of Kruger from the comfort of your personal vehicle or rental car. Stop off at one of the many picnic sites for an Ice Cream or an ice cold Drink during summer time.

Bush Dinners

Join us for a lovely dinner under the African Skies, in an unfenced area of our Private Concession in the Kruger National Park. This is a privilege that is reserved for our guests only. Nowhere else in Kruger will you be able to dine with the Big Five.
