Impalila Island lies at the very tip of the Caprivi Strip, in the heart of some of the most outstanding tiger fishing on the Upper Zambezi River. It forms the north-eastern tip of Namibia and lies just 70kms west of Victoria Falls. It is situated at the meeting place of two mighty African rivers, the Chobe and Zambezi, and four countries, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana. This is the only place in the world where four countries meet.
Not only does the immediate area around the Impalila Island Lodge offer many kilometres of fishing, but there is direct access to the Mambova Rapids (right in front of the Lodge), the Kasai Channel (5 minutes away by boat) and the Chobe River (20 minutes away). The main target is the legendary tiger fish (Hydocynus vittatus) and this area is regarded by many as one of the finest for tiger fishing on the entire upper Zambezi River.
