Amazing experience!!
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 Aug 2023via mobile
This was our second stay in the family suite at this camp. We liked it so much two years prior we wanted to stay again. We shared the two bedroom accommodation with brother and sis-in-law. Had our private chef and staff who prepared delicious food and provided exceptional service. We were blessed to have Ruben as our guide and Sam (Pim) as our tracker — had them two years prior as well. They were so professional, knowledgeable, and great senses of humor. Had so much fun with them!!! Game viewing was great and loved watching elephants at the watering hole. Very highly recommend Impodimo!!!

We visited with our 4 kids and were all made very welcome.

Impodimo exceeded our expectations. The lodge is beautiful.

The waterhole and hide were a big hit with the whole family.

The driver and ranger were very knowledgable and this made for great sightings and stories. A real highlight.

The rooms are spacious and beautiful. We had a patio view of the bush and and frequently saw elephants making their way to the watering hole. The bed was very comfortable.

The hospitality is exceptional and nothing is too much trouble. Food 5 star.

Would 110% recommend.

Impodimo Lodge provided us with an exceptional experience during our stay. The lodge itself is impeccably clean and exudes a sense of luxury that truly enhanced our visit. The service we received was truly superb. Ofentse, in particular, went above and beyond to make us feel right at home. His dedication to fulfilling our every need was truly remarkable and greatly appreciated.

One of the highlights of our stay was the Tracker and Ranger team, Reuben and Sam. Their kindness, patience, and professionalism were truly next level. They made our wildlife encounters unforgettable, providing us with fascinating insights and ensuring our safety throughout our excursions. Their expertise and passion for their work were evident in every interaction we had with them.

We left Impodimo with cherished memories and a desire to return. The combination of the lodge's luxurious atmosphere, exceptional service from staff like Ofentse, the chefs,and the outstanding skills of the Tracker and Ranger team, Reuben and Sam, make it an ideal destination for anyone seeking a truly remarkable safari experience. We wholeheartedly recommend Impodimo Lodge and eagerly anticipate our next stay there.

Impodimo provided us with the most amazing experience, above and beyond even our wildest expectations.
Every game drives was unique and exciting- our guide and tracker team of Meri and Heron were sensational.
The lodge itself was spectacular, with the waterhole and views provided from the rooms, hide and main lodge being a constant source of fascination.
The food was amazing- from breakfast through to dinner.
Everyone at the lodge was a wonderful host.
An amazing experience that I would highly recommend!!

Room tip: Room 1 provides an amazing view of the waterhole!

Listen. If you’re reading this, book Impodimo. I always wanted to be on a safari so my expectations were through the roof. BUT Impodimo and Madikwe exceeded it! Sam and Lots were the absolute best ranger and trackers and we were so lucky to have them the whole trip. The entire Impodimo team was honestly too awesome - service, quality, right amount of attention. And it’s a small lodge so you get your space but also get to know the team and other guests. The game drives were impeccable and we saw so much that we wanted to. BTW food was AMAZING and I didn’t realize until we left how lucky we were to have that 5 star cuisine. The rooms were large, comfortable, and perfect — especially with the deck overlooking the watering hole. Actually — don’t book. I’ll go instead. Again. Thank you Impodimo!

Room tip: Book room 2 or 1 for great views of water hole

We have travelled to many bush lodges and game parks across South Africa, and we agreed that this was probably one of our favourite trips. It ticked so many boxes. Impodimo lodge is beautiful, there is plenty of chill areas, a lovely pool and a massage room seperate in the bush. Great view of waterhole from main lodge. There is also a really nice hide that has aircon and drinks, where you can spend some time comfortably. Game viewing was exceptional. We had some amazing sightings. Game vehicles were comfortable and the coffee and sundowner stops were always a treat. We had a knowledgeable game ranger and tracker. Some of our best sightings to date!
Our room was spacious and beautiful. We had a patio view of the bush and often saw animals from there during the day passing by. Especially Elephants making their way to the watering hole. Bed was very comfortable and the bath tub and outside shower were really nice.
Breakfasts were scrumptious and a lot on offer. Tea in the afternoon was filled with many treats to choose from. Dinners were divine and filling. Great wine selection.
What really made this trip extra special was the service and hospitality. It was really amazing. Always willing to help, always available for any needs. Always friendly. I think because it’s not a large lodge, the attention is more focused and of better quality. I like to say it’s a boutique lodge.
We are looking forward to our next stay here and couldn’t recommend it enough.

Room tip: Remember a beanie and a very warm jacket for game drives, it is quite cold early morning and at night returning from evening game drive.
