Imbali Safari Lodge is located within the private 10 000-hectare concession of Mluwati in the western region of the Kruger National Park, bordering the northern Sabi Sands and Manyeleti Game Reserves.

Location
The Mluwati Concession is located in the central Kruger area some 35 km South East of Orpen Gate. The concession is peripheral and borders the Sabi Sands and Manyeleti Game reserves to the West. The entire area is unfenced and creates a massive corridor for game movement.

Kruger Park gate fees
Due to us being located in a private concession area our guests enjoy a once off access fee of R83.00 per person per stay. Standard Kruger entrance fees do not apply.

Kruger Park entrance times

Please be aware of gate entrance times into the Kruger National Park as they vary throughout the year, depending on the season. Entrance into the park via Orpen Gate should be no later than two hours prior to gate closure time and via Kruger Gate should be no later than three hours prior to gate closure times.

NOTE: Please allow 2 hours to get to the lodge from the Orpen Gate.

Safety precautionsPlease adhere to the Kruger National Park safety precautions, and do not disembark from your vehicle unless you are in a designated area.

Cellphone reception
Due to the remote location of the camp, there is no cell phone reception at the lodge.  Cellphone signal is only available at the entrance gates and close to Skukuza, it is therefore recommended to make any necessary calls at the gate upon entry.  Should you need to make an urgent call, we do have land lines available. 

Water
The water at the lodge is safe to drink, however, for your convenience we also provide complimentary bottled water in the suites.

Fences
As the lodge does not have fences, it is not advisable to walk around alone after dark. Our guides will escort you to and from dinner.

Young Children
Children 8 years and older are welcome at the Imbali. Extra camp beds are available for your children between 6 and 12 years old, to share with parents. Please note that we allow a maximum of 2 children per suite. Safaris for children are at Management discretion. Private vehicles are available at a surcharge which allow guests to be guaranteed safaris for children.

Children older than 12 occupy their own room at full rate.
