The staff and management of Imbabala are the best! Richard our guide was the kindest most informed safari guide ever! Everyone went above and beyond to make our stay so very perfect. The views and the food are perfection!

Lovely place to get away to although dry time of the year. Super to see the Impala on the lawn sleeping at night feeling safe from predators. Great time of the year to see animal babies and tortoises. Beautiful view from the camp. Super friendly staff and Sarah and Jon looked after us so well Thank you

We absolutely loved our stay there in June and think and talk of it often. Our guide Richard was just the best. His knowledge about birds was second to none and we ticked over 100 bird off our checklist. Our room was perfect however a small bar fridge would be an added bonus. We had a breakfast cruise on the...

I don't think I have ever felt more welcome at any place I have visited. John and Sarah were the perfect hosts, and their staff were wonderful. The entire experience was out of this world. I cannot recommend this place more highly!

Terrific place if you want to really see animals up close in their natural state and be treated with five star service. The foil was plentiful and of a. Dry high standard considering we were in the middle of no where. Watching lions at a waterhole with a large G&T in hand was a bit surreal! Getting in and out...

Spent 3 nights here and would have loved to have stayed longer. It is an amazing place with incredible views and you share the grounds with the animals. The food is great and dining outside whilst a 100+ impala bed down on the lawn is quite fantastic. Woke up to the baboons walking through the camp and watched the Zambezi...
