This five-star owner-managed Game Lodge truly lives up to the spirit of its name which means “a gift from God” in Tswana and features eight glass-fronted luxury suites and two deluxe suites built into the hillside. The tastefully-appointed thatched suites are all positioned to optimise your privacy and your views of the parade of resident bird- and wildlife meandering down to the waterhole to quench their thirst.
Each standard suite is furnished with an option of twin beds or a king-sized bed on request, a fireplace, full en-suite bathroom, outdoor shower, bar fridge, safe, coffee/tea making station, air-conditioning, and a covered patio.
In addition, this generous unit also has a central sitting room, dining space, kitchen, and bar leading onto an extended wooden patio which boasts an inviting plunge pool. Guests staying in the deluxe suites also have the sole-use of a game drive vehicle at their disposal as well as the services of a dedicated chef.
Impodimo’s central hub is decorated in the same refreshing Afro-chic style as the suites and is the heart of this fabulous Game Lodge. Here you will find a cosy lounge and bar area with a striking circular fireplace as its focal point, a comfortable library, well- stocked wine cellar, and gift shop.
Mouth-watering breakfasts and lunches are usually served on the pool deck while high teas are catered to al fresco in a spot overlooking Madikwe’s sweeping landscape. Come evening meals the delightful firelit Boma is the ideal place to enjoy Impodimo’s fine Pan-African fare and relive another amazing day on safari in Africa.
If you’re in need of some downtime, why not idle away your afternoon alongside the sparkling pool or escape to the confines of the Sala which is located near the waterhole. Or round off your day in the great outdoors with a rejuvenating in-room spa treatment by one of Impodimo’s experienced massage therapists.
Impodimo Game Lodge is set up to provide guests the opportunity to explore Madikwe’s incredible diversity of fauna and flora including Africa's Big Five. Activities include twice- daily game drives in open Landrovers and bush walks accompanied by qualified field rangers and talented Shangaan trackers.
The early evening safari drive includes a sundowner stop, giving you the chance to watch the sun set on another glorious day in this wilderness paradise and go in search of the more elusive nocturnal animals. And in the chillier winter season, the Lodge offers guests full-day excursions to the far side of Madikwe Game Reserve, including a scrumptious picnic lunch.
While junior guests aged six or younger are not allowed on the regular game drives, Impodimo does have a kiddies’ “bush bumble.” What’s more, each child will receive a personalized welcome pack with goodies and activities to complete inbetween their mini-safaris. Babysitting services can also be arranged at an additional charge.
However, you prefer spending your time, Impodimo Game Lodge is geared to make your dream of a memorable African safari a reality without sacrificing on your creature comforts.
