Impodimo Game Lodge is set along a rocky ridge commanding stunning vistas of the Madikwe Game Reserve. It is also located at the source of a natural spring, which provides the lodge with elevated views as well as riverine serenity.

Madikwe Game Reserve covers an area of 75000 hectares of unique topography and breathtaking beauty bordering Botswana. It is home to the Big 5, the beautiful Painted Wolf (African Wild Dogs), Cheetah, Brown and Spotted Hyena as well as a variety of large mammals and bird life.

Impodimo is the ideal retreat from a busy world. Relax by the feature rock pool or read a book from the library in the comfort of our sala overlooking the waterhole. Perhaps let one of our therapists ease the stress out of your body with an in-room massage.

Spacious in design, each of the 8 Luxury Suites include a closed system fireplace, climate control air conditioner, mini bar fridge, tea & coffee making facilities and full en-suite bathroom and outside shower. Your private deck allows uninterrupted views of the Madikwe Game Reserve. Each suite has been carefully positioned to ensure absolute privacy.

The Deluxe Safari Suite is for those who prefer something extraordinary. Up to 4 guests and 2 children reside in our sumptuous Deluxe Suite with 2 en-suite rooms, a lounge and dining area, private boma and plunge pool all commanding magnificent views over the Madikwe bushveld. With the services of a private guide, tracker, open 4×4 game viewer, chef and butler exclusively yours, you set the pace on a bushveld experience that takes safari to a whole new level.

Rise in the morning to an African dawn and enjoy an early morning game drive with your dedicated professional ranger and tracker. Relax as your ranger guides you through the bush on a custom made open Land Rover searching out the secrets of nature. In the afternoon, when the heat of the African sun has diminished and the shadows are longer, head out on a sundowner safari to watch the sun set on this bushveld paradise and go in search of the more nocturnal creatures that now rule the bush. The safaris are carefully timed to ensure optimal seasonal comfort. Game drives in the big 5 reserve are both thrilling and educational, with your knowledgeable ranger and highly experienced trackers from the Shangaan tribe who are renowned for their tracking abilities.

Children of all ages are welcome at Impodimo and we love to go out of our way to ensure that kids and parents both have an unforgettable safari experience. Our kiddies program is tailored to the different ages and can be fun and educational for all. Each child receives a personalized welcome pack with goodies and activities to do in between safaris. Children over the age of 6 years are welcome on the game drives, however, families with younger children need not fear that their kids will miss out, as we offer a ‘kiddies bumble’ which is shorter and aimed at keeping the little one’s attention.
