Village Tour - Impalila Island

This uniquely positioned island straddles the intersection of where all four countries meet. It is here where it is possible to drink a beer, a Zimbabwean Zambezi, a Botswana St Louis, a Zambian Mozi and a Namibian Tafel and know that the countries from whence they came are not more than 200 metres away. Folklore has it that a notorious smuggler lived here and each time a deputation was sent to arrest him from one of the adjoining countries he would insist that where he was standing was in another sovereign state. He was never sent to jail for his crimes. The little island has another side to its history in that it played a prominent role when the South African Defence Force used it as a military base and it is still possible to climb the lookout baobab and sit high above the Zambezi flood plain and behold an endless view over all four countries. This baobab has an astounding girth of 48 metres.
