  • Important Information
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 area is the eastern most tip of the Caprivi Strip - from the air an amazing mosaic of waterways, floodplains and bushveld - on the ground exceptional bird life, game-viewing and assorted vegetation - and in the waters outstanding fishing opportunities. 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. The Main complex facilities include an infinity swimming pool, bar, curio shop, reference library, lounge and dining area - all built under the canopy of an ancient baobab tree. Guests may choose how they spend their leisure time and apart from our luxurious accommodation and culinary delights, we offer them a wide variety of activities. A sunset game cruise on the Chobe River, fly-fishing the Mambova rapids for the rapacious Tigerfish or bream, guided walks on the island including visits to cultural villages and a 2000 year-old baobab tree, from where the meeting of all four countries and two rivers can be witnessed, mokoro (dugout canoe) trips in the quiet backwaters, or just pampered relaxation. Bird watching - some of Africa's rarest birds are spotted here. Day trips to Victoria Falls and scenic flights over the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers can also be arranged.

Due to the prevailing fuel price hikes, we could be notified by our trusted suppliers of an unscheduled increase in transfer costs to our lodges. As the fuel price proves to be unstable we will make every effort to buffer further increases, but regret that this is largely out of our control. We do however guarantee that we will notify you promptly of radical changes, and strive to provide you with the best possible transfer rates. We thank you for your ongoing support, and do not hesitate to contact us should you require further clarity or information. Warm Island Wishes.
