About Imbali Safari Lodge
Kruger National Park – an incredible wilderness area the same size as Switzerland – is known the world over as one of Africa’s preeminent safari destinations. In the heart of the Kruger lies the private Mluwati Concession and the exclusive Imbali Safari Lodge.
Composed entirely of private suites, each unit at Imbali Safari Lodge comes with a private plunge pool and ever-changing views out into the untouched wilderness beyond. Imbali guests often enjoy spectacular and memorable sightings from the comfort of their suites – sometimes it’s not even necessary to go on a game drive.
A short stroll from their suites brings Imbali guests to the stylish but inviting main area, with the sparkling swimming pool promising refreshing dips between game drives. The pool overlooks the famous Imbali waterhole, where a near-continuous procession of wildlife (including members of the Big 5) comes to drink. There’s nothing quite like watching completely unconcerned lions or elephants slaking their thirst just a short distance away from the relaxing setting of the pool.
The dining venues at Imbali Safari Lodge are as varied as the menus – meals might be served in the cosy dining room under the spreading branches of impressive jackalberry tree, or out on the deck, under the stars.
Underlining Imbali’s commitment to being ecologically sound, the main deck was built around the tree, while the Tsonga-style thatched roof references (and respects) the traditional architecture of local people.
Eating dinner outside at Imbali Safari Lodge is a particularly special occasion – as darkness falls, the surrounding bush comes to life in all its noisy glory! The night sounds are a reminder of how prolific an area this is for wildlife. Guided vehicle safaris take guests both to the animal hotspots within the Mluwati Concession, and also deeper into the greater Kruger National Park.
Safari: With some of Kruger’s most spectacular landscapes and an extraordinary variety of wildlife, bird life and plant life within the concession, each of our safari experiences is unique. Guests can enjoy a morning and afternoon safari in open 4x4s.
Spa: Spa treatments are available in the privacy of your suite. These are charged separately, according to the treatment you choose.
Covid Safety Approved: The Safe & Clean Commitment protocols been implemented by the Extraordinary Collection is focused on the guest and staff safety by addressing the various hygiene and social distancing challenges that have been presented by COVID-19.
