Impalila Island

Boat trip at Impalila

Impalila Island is situated on the eastern tip of the Caprivi Strip where the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers meet. To reach the island you need to travel to Kasane in Botswana from where a boat takes you across the Chobe River.

Visitors to Impalila Island can join a tour of the river’s inlets in a mokoro, a dugout canoe. Visitors can explore the island, which is about 11 km long and 4 km wide, visit villages and their inhabitants or just enjoy the fishing. If you wish to stay on the island there are a couple of up-market lodges on the rivers shores offering excellent accommodation.
