Impodimo Game Lodge
Wonderfully positioned on a rocky ridge on the western edge of South Africa’s Madikwe Game Reserve, Impodimo is a little known gem of a safari lodge carved from the hillside with far reaching views. Its location at the source of a natural spring provides riverine serenity and it also overlooks a waterhole frequented by elephants and other wildlife. The Madikwe is one of the lesser known game reserves in South Africa with a rich, diverse topography, ranging from vast savannah grasslands to rocky outcrops and open woodlands and it is flanked in the south by the Dwarsberg Mountains. Its location close to the border with Botswana, where the dense bushveld meets the Kalahari, ensures a superb wildlife experience and what’s more, this area is malaria free, making it suitable for families and first-time safari goers. This is Big Five territory it is easily accessible from Johannesburg via a one hour scenic flight or a 4–5 hour drive.

It comes complete with the services of a private guide, tracker, chef and butler and you set the pace of your safari game drives. This takes the family safari experience to a whole new level!
Boma and bush dinners are all part of the experience at Impodimo. Enjoy brunch by the poolside on return from your morning game drive and high tea in the afternoon overlooking the African bush. The evenings are a Pan-African affair in the open-air boma followed by a nightcap around the fire when safari stories often linger long into the night.
Rise in the morning to an African dawn and enjoy an early morning game drive with your ranger and tracker. After an exhilarating drive, relax by the lodge’s rock pool or enjoy a massage in the privacy of your Suite. Then in the afternoon, when the heat of the African sun has diminished, head out on a sundowner safari to watch the sun set on the bushveld and go in search of the more nocturnal creatures that now rule the bush. Game drives are always exciting and educational, led by your knowledgeable ranger and experienced tracker.
