Imbali Safari Lodge’s style is inspired by the safari tradition of a bygone era. In the 1900s the African Safari was a journey of great danger and greater luxury.
Sheltered in a riverine forest overlooking the seasonal Nwaswitsontso river, Imbali is built on the site of a 400-year-old African settlement, evidenced by clay pots, bone tools and grinding stones.
GOOD BIG FIVE
Animal and bird sightings are very good, including the Big Five. The lodge is at the same latitude as its unfenced neighbour, Sabi Sand, and shares its game.
Morning walks allow you to explore a diverse landscape surrounding the lodge.
Guests are accommodated in 12 spacious air-conditioned chalet suites decorated with splashes of African colour.
Each has a large king bed. The claw-foot bathtub is made of stone and marble and there is a separate shower en-suite.
French doors run the length of the rooms to let the wilderness in. An expansive deck overlooks the Nwaswitsontso river or savannah grasslands with a Jacuzzi or outdoor splash pool.
The sparkling infinity pool in the main area promises a refreshing dip while providing the opportunity to enjoy the rich and varied wildlife that comes to the Imbali waterhole. Spa treatments are available in the privacy of your suite.
FLOODLIT DINNER DECK
Lunch and three course dinners are served under an impressive Jackalberry tree rising right through the dining room deck and over the Tsonga-styled thatched roof.
