Impalila Island Lodge Review

At the crossroads of four countries—Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, and Zimbabwe—this all-inclusive lodge is famous for its hospitality, accommodations, food, and activities. Raised wood-and-thatch chalets, furnished with polished local mukwa wood, open onto wide verandas overlooking the Mambova Rapids at the confluence of the Zambezi and Chobe rivers. The main thatched dining and bar area is built around two huge baobab trees. After your day's activities, relax on the wooden deck and boast about your tiger-fishing skills, or tick off your mammal and bird lists. Don't miss a guided boat trip to the banks of Botswana's Chobe National Park for game-viewing, or a tranquil mokoro (canoe) trip in the papyrus-fringed channels.
