Issue 2 (May 2008) The stunning island of Impalila where four countries – Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia all meet - is to have a new 5-star development.


The island hit the headlines in 1988 when popstar Michael Jackson was flown there in Namibia’s presidential jet after mentioning he might like to build a luxury lodge there. Nothing came of Jackson’s visit but now South African Laurence van Schalkwyk is going ahead his own plans for the site. Impalila is sandwiched between the Zambezi and Chobe rivers and is famous for its birds and fabulous fishing. It already has a number of lodges but it’s hoped the new development will provide more, much-needed, employment for the island.
