Nestled discreetly amidst a canopy of impressive Jackalberry and Tamboti trees in the iconic Kruger National Park, Imbali Safari Lodge offers scenic views across its sprawling private concession. Sheltered in a riverine forest overlooking the seasonal Nwaswitsontso river, Imbali is built on the site of a 400-year-old African settlement that has yielded evidence of an ancient culture. Clay pots, bone tools and grinding stones have been unearthed and a proudly displayed in the lodge. Honoring the spirit in which Kruger National Park was created, Imbali acts as a sanctuary for bush creatures great and small, as well as to guests fortunate enough to visit the indomitable Kruger National Park.
Guests are accommodated in twelve spacious suites, subtly decorated in neutral colours with enchanting splashes of African tradition, from the ornate wall lamps to the comfortable textured pillows. Large French doors run the length of the room to let the beautiful outside wilderness in, on your terms; an expansive deck overlooks the Nwaswitsontso river or savannah grasslands with a Jacuzzi or outdoor pool to complete your leisure bush experience. Relax on the sunbed with a book or let those bubbles soothe your weary muscles; the chattering of weavers, thrushes and kingfishers providing a magical bush playlist for your relaxation. The spacious stone and marble bathroom features a separate claw-foot bathtub and shower with signature bath amenities, a hairdryer and fluffy bathrobes. Soak your stresses away as you marinade in bath salts while looking out onto the peace of the Kruger bush. Sink in to the comfortable king-size bed for a quick siesta or after a hard day’s safari; a mosquito net envelops the entire bed in the evening.
Experience magnificent cuisine, freshly prepared to guest’s satisfaction by the lodge chefs, from a menu as extensive as the Africa wilderness. With an air of opulence befitting royalty, Imbali Safari Lodge is the perfect African utopia where guests will find serenity.
