From the moment you enter the Impodimo Game Lodge, you feel at home. The lodge property is well maintained and beautiful. The food, drinks and service was 5-star and we did not feel the need to ask for anything additional. Our room was spacious with an amazing deck overlooking the water hole. Be sure to ask for one by the...

Spent 4 days at Impodimo last week with friends. Absolutely outstanding visit. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They appear a young team who all get on well together. Their love and respect for the animals is obvious. The combination of a tracker and ranger is excellent. The accommodation is rustic and extremely comfortable. The meals are freshly prepared...

Four of us from varying ages spent 4 days in the park at Impodimo Lodge. Our guide was Declan and he was incredible - enthusiastic, knowledgeable, determined, eager and a great person. The food was outstanding, the setting spectacular and we managed to see the Big 5 plus a cheetah-wildebeest showdown!

We visited here on a second anniversary trip on the recommendation of a friend and our expectations were far, far exceeded. I am delayed in writing this review, but after just visiting another lodge in Pilanesberg, I now feel even more strongly about how amazing Impodimo is. Their drives include a ranger (driver) and a tracker who sits on the...

My girlfriend and I had never been on safari before - so really weren't quite sure what to expect. But from the moment we met the staff at Impodimo, we knew this would be something special. The lodge is simply stunning and the rooms are big, bright and full of character. Within 5 minutes of checking in, an elephant walked...

Going on a Safari holiday had never been a major priority in my thinking. I had always been wedded to either to the coastal beauty and sophistication of the South of France or Italy or the vibrancy, and buzz of the US West Coast and California. But eventually friends suggested a joint family holiday to South Africa over Christmas and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On a rugged dolomite ridge overlooking a vast African wilderness, you will find a hidden treasure called Impodimo. Taken from the Tswana words Mpho Dimo, Impodimo means a gift from God, and is truly a slice of heaven on earth. Rise in the morning to an African dawn and enjoy an early morning game drive with your dedicated professional ranger. Relax as your ranger guides you through the bush on a custom made open Land Rover, searching out the Big 5 or the smaller secrets of nature. Set out on a foot safari with your armed ranger and learn the secrets of tracking African game or just enjoy the trees, birds and stunning scenery. Return from the excitement of the bush to a sumptuous breakfast or brunch and then relax at the pool or the sala overlooking the waterhole where game may come to quench their thirst. In the afternoon, when the heat of the African sun has diminished and the shadows are longer, head out again on a sundowner safari, where you will stop to watch the sun set on this bushveld paradise and enjoy your favourite sundowner drink. Once the sun has set and darkness descends, set off again for a night safari where the more nocturnal creatures now rule the bush. Return to the lodge where you will be treated to the finest Pan-African cuisine with your hosts in the open air boma, and share your days adventures, while you enjoy a night cap around the fire. Impodimo Game Lodge is set along a rocky ridge commanding stunning vistas of the reserve. It is also located at the source of a natural spring, which provides the lodge with elevated views as well as riverine serenity. The lodge offers dawn and dusk safaris. The safaris are carefully timed to ensure optimal seasonal comfort. Whilst Impodimo has 10 suites, its capacity is 16 guests. Each of the suites have been carefully positioned to ensure absolute privacy. Spacious in design, each includes 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. ... more   less
