Impalila refurbishments and Islands in Africa news

The aftermath of the 2010 football World Cup is almost a distant memory yet Islands in Africa is anticipating an exciting year ahead. Already guest enquiries for the Caprivi lodges has sparked renewed interest in the region as world economies find their footing after previous turbulence.

In anticipation of the coming season, renovation is currently underway. Ntwala Island Lodge is undergoing general maintenance, while Impalila Island Lodge is enjoying a facelift with both structural and major soft refurbishment taking place - these improvements include the main lodge facilities as well as the chalets. As a consequence of the work being completed, under supervision of new management, Impalila Island Lodge is at present closed but will reopen in time for Valentine's Day on the 14th February 2011.

Though the Zambezi has begun to rise - as it is wont to do at this time of the year - the quality of the tiger fishing indicates the existing health of the river. In late January, productive angling was enjoyed at the lodges with a trio of specimen "water dogs" exceeding the 8 kg mark being landed.

At Susuwe Island Lodge on the Kwando River, feverish excitement prevailed when guests sighted lion cubs in the company of their parents near Little Serengeti. From the "vocalising" taking place from the males, it seems they are still intent on remaining active within their territory despite the inclement weather patterns. Encouragingly too, leopard sightings are becoming more frequent.
