About Impodimo Game Lodge

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

Located in the malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve, 75 000 hectares of unique topography and breathtaking beauty, it is also the home to the big 5, wild dog, cheetah and a large variety of mammal and bird life.


Carved from the hillside, eight glass fronted luxury chalets line a natural spring, each enjoying striking views either from within or from the outdoor shower. The lodge enjoys spectacular vistas extending as far as the eye can see, your choice may be to visit in summer and laze on the pool deck with a chilled Chardonnay. Or maybe a winter safari - retire to the library with a cognac or stoke the fire in your suite, gaze out at the stars before drifting away with vivid images of unrestricted close encounters with Africa’s big game.


All suites are air-conditioned and also feature fireplaces and private decks. Full en-suite facilities including spectacular vistas and outside showers. Mini bar fridges and hot beverage facilities; Elevated sun deck surrounds the feature pool.

The lodge features a magnificent feature pool which looks over onto an active water hole, during the heat of the day much is observed from the pool or from the nearby viewing sala.


Breakfasts and lunches are enjoyed on the pool deck while dinner is in the Boma. For those wanting peace and tranquillity nothing can beat taking a book from the library and whiling away the afternoon in the sala.


Daily dawn and dusk / evening game drives are conducted in open landrovers by qualified rangers and Shangaan trackers. Walks are also available.

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. 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 favorite 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.


Lion, elephant, black and white rhino, buffalo, leopard - Big Five- also cheetah and wild dog - Magnificent seven. Giraffe, zebra, warthog, baboon, monkey, hippo, crocodile, and a variety of antelope including kudu, impala, waterbuck, Springbok, Wildebeest, Eland, Blesbok, Tsessebe and Steenbok are regularly seen, along with a number of the more elusive or less common animals. With a bird population of over 250 different species. Bring your binoculars.


Sharing all the wonders that an African game reserve has with children is one of the pleasures that the Impodimo team treasures. The safety of children on safari is of paramount importance to our staff and for this reason we reserve the right to limit children's participation on safaris designed to bring you, the parent, close to big game. For this reason we have created the concept of the 'bush bumble' where we encourage parents to join their children on a game drive designed to focus on the little things.

Verified reviewexcellent

Impodimo Lodge was the highlight of our trip to South Africa! 5 star all the way, the staff were so friendly and nothing was ever a problem, the lodges just beautiful complimenting the surroundings and having the elephants just stroll by your lodge or coming up to the trees just outside your window was truly amazing! Everything felt luxurious from the sheets to the bath towels! The game park drives were out of this world and with only 20 people being able to stay there at any one time it felt very intimate and personal. 2 Nights just wasn't enough, 5 stars!!

Totally fantastic experience. The facilities, food, staff and location were all excellent, but the highlight was seeing the animals. The rangers and trackers we so knowledgeable, and expert at finding the best locations to view the flora & fauna. To see a herd of wild elephants drinking out of the pool, week-old lion cubs and mom, to watch the fabulous sunsets while enjoying a glass of bubbly, surrounded by giraffes and zebra going about their foraging activities--this is something I will never forget. You can't do this once and not want to go back.
