This upscale safari lodge on Impalila Island on the Zambezi River was entirely redesigned to take full advantage of its exceptional location and offer guests an authentic and modern experience in northeastern Namibia. Eight thatched-roof bungalows are arranged within and under the branches of a massive, 700-year-old baobab tree – a location so idyllic it’s believed explorer David Livingstone used to camp here. The subtropical, forested region is a mosaic of waterways and floodplains awaiting discovery, and home to countless birds, wildlife and varied vegetation. The lodge is located just over 40 miles west of Victoria Falls. Guests aboard a cruise on the Zimbabwean Dream overnight at the lodge during the land portion of their trip.
The newly renovated bungalows and villas are ideally situated for prime river and savannah views. Each offers a bedroom, lounge area, en-suite bathroom, private swimming pool and expansive terrace with sun loungers. Guests may choose from six bungalows and two villa-style accommodations, the latter offering more living area and a larger terrace.
Each bungalow is equipped with air conditioning and heating, a television and DVD player, bathrobes and slippers, toiletries, coffee- and tea-making facilities, a stocked minibar, a flashlight, a waterproof coat, an umbrella and insecticide.
Guests dine on refined cuisine in the lodge restaurant, with its view over the surrounding natural area. To inspire quiet gatherings with other travelers, the lodge offers a large panoramic terrace with an outdoor fire pit and infinity swimming pool.
Complimentary WiFi is available. The electrical outlets come with adapters that cover most countries. The lodge also has a gift shop, laundry service and fishing equipment rental.
