Situated 70 kilometres upriver from the Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River, Ntwala Island Lodge is quite simply a beautiful and exclusive retreat. On a private island, with only four luxurious double suites that are each individually designed, it has a really personal feel.
Ntwala Island Lodge is located not far from its sister-camp Impalila Island Lodge.
Ntwala Island Lodge large and private suites are furnished to a very high standard with king-size beds surrounded by mosquito netting drapes. From here you can look out over your private deck with plunge pool; both nestled amongst the lush vegetation. The room has two comfortable chairs with a reading table in between, a wardrobe, writing desk, tea and coffee making facilities, a decanter of sherry, a well-stocked mini bar (included) and a small safe. Outside there is a sala (with day bed) and a wooden veranda extending over the river with swings and deck chairs, as well as the plunge pool to cool off from the day’s heat.
The spacious en-suite bathrooms are pretty impressive with his and hers wooden basins, a luxurious stone bathtub and both an indoor and outdoor shower.
The main building has an open plan lounge area with comfortable sofas and a dining area with individual tables. There is a well-stocked bar and a walk in wine cellar available to enjoy some pre and post dinner drinks. Ntwala Island Lodge has a curio shop, too, to buy some souvenirs from your trip.
To the front of the main area, overlooking the Mambova rapids, is a fire pit surrounded by directors’ chairs where the campfire is set up in the evenings and guests gather before and after dinner to chat and enjoy drinks. The Ntwala Island Lodge also has an elevated, river-facing viewing deck from where you can enjoy beautiful views and watch the bird and wildlife which frequent this area.
Ntwala Island Lodge is very close to Chobe National Park in Botswana; so some of its activities are based around various types of game viewing experiences. Most activities here are privately guided – each set of guests being allocated their own personal guide. These include boat trips along the Chobe River where, in season, you will get to see huge herds of elephant coming to drink at the waters edge, as well as many other species of game. Other such trips include sundowner boat cruises, bird watching walks, cultural village visits and fishing. Game drives into the Chobe National Park and day trips (by light aircraft or by road) to Victoria Falls can also be arranged.

Impalila Island (sometimes spelt Mpalila) is an island at the far eastern tip of Namibia, bounded on the north by the waters of the Zambezi river and on the south by the Chobe River. It is home to some 300 people in 25 small villages, including Tswanas (from Botswana) and Subia people (from Namibia).
Impalila Island is usually accessed from Kasane in Botswana, on the other bank of the Chobe River. There is a Namibian customs and immigration post on the island. There is also an airport with a 1,300 metre runway, used for charter flights to bring tourists to the various lodges on the island. The airport is a relic of a military base used in the 1980s by the South African Defence Forces, strategically positioned within sight of Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
