Pros: Amazing location and relaxed atmosphere
Cons: It was as near perfect as possible!

Wonderful, small, quiet facility inside KrugerPosted Jun 10, 2013
Pros: Food, wait staff, and Nicholas, tea was great.
Cons: WiFi doesn't work even though they advertise it. Staff was nice enough to let me use their office computer just to tell folks we were off line.
Location: Little to do other than the safaris, read and rest. We did go into town which is a nice drive for Wifi. Enjoy the quiet!
We had a great experience at this quiet, small hotel. Loved the mix of guests and the wait staff, hotel staff and Nicholas, our safari guide went out of their way for every whim. The food was great, the room clean and very comfortable. the outdoor spa was a treat once we realized it could be heated. I recommend the in room massage for couples -- a real treat. Also, there is a watering hole close by so you can sit on your porch and watch them. Shower was great compared to other lodges and having your laundry done is a real treat as we had been traveling for 10 days. Even though it is fenced, there are still animals around but you can sit on your porch at night which can't be done at other lodges inside the park. I don't recommend for small children as there is no where to run around.

Great Hotel for Being PamperedPosted Mar 30, 2013
Pros: The bed, and the view from the bedroom (the personal patio); the food; the friendliness and personal attention; the ambiance!
Cons: The jacuzzi was a bit cold. The website says the hotel does transfers from MQP airport, but they don't.
Location: Magical and wild - right in the bush
This was a lovely, relaxing place to stay. The staff were very friendly and hospitable. The food was excellent. The scale made it all very intimate - so we got to know all the staff and all the other guests. Everything was smart and very comfortable - truly a 5-star experience. Would love to go back and do it all again!

Fabulous Kruger experiencePosted May 13, 2010
I cannot imagine a better Kruger experience! We did a self-driving tour for 2 days, then included a 2-day stay at Imbali Safari Lodge. From the moment we arrived, the service was impeccable. The lodge itself is located within Kruger National Park. Our cottage with thatched roof and private jaccuzi was quite luxurious. Three meals per day (breakfast/brunch, high tea, and dinner) are included. The food was tasty and plentiful. The game drives (two per day, around 4 hours each) were fantastic! Our ranger was extremely knowledgable and made it his mission to ensure we made the most out of our trip. Over the course of two days, we saw lions, rhinos, elephant, giraffe, zebra, warthogs, water buffalo, impala, and more. If you're looking for the safari experience within the confines of Kruger, this is the way to go!
