Impalila Island Lodge is close to Chobe National Park making it an ideal place to experience both the Chobe National Park and the Namibian side. The lodge is built around an ancient baobab that can be seen a mile away as you approach the lodge by boat. Impalila lodges accommodate guests in eight en-suite thatched wooden chalets, accessed by sandy pathways leading from the main lodge. The thatched chalets are set in lush riverine forests. Each chalet has a private outside deck with spectacular views of the Zambezi River. The main area is a large mukwa wood-and-thatch structure, built around a pair of ancient baobabs. The bar and lounge area house comfortable sofas and armchairs, and a small library. Meals are served in an outside deck overlooking the Zambezi. The public area also features a curio shop for your shopping. Even though Impalila is located on the Namibian side, it is close to Chobe National Park giving guests easy access to explore an array of activities that include boat trips and island walk with great opportunities for game and bird viewing. The lodge is popular for fly fishing tours.
