We visited Impodimo in August for four nights as part of a family trip. We arrived at the lodge having taken a flight from Victoria falls to Gaberone. Here we had arranged a transfer by taxi which is a little fiddly due to the border...More

We were not originally scheduled to stay here. Ours was a last-minute booking due to an unfortunate incident at a nearby lodge. But you wouldn't have known it from the welcome and attention we received. The rooms were outstanding; clean, spacious, well-designed and well-maintained. I...More

Safari and food at its best. The rooms are amazing and staff are attentive and friendly. We enjoyed the pit stops with a traditional drink and the hot water bottle early in the morning. Blessed to see so many animals including the African Wild Dog!...More

About
Description
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 ...More 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. Less

There is laundry service, but unlike the other lodges we were at, it was not inclusive, so you have to pay extra.
