Impodimo is one of the less expensive lodges in Madikwe, yet it is extremely comfortable, offers good service and some great game-viewing.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Impodimo sits on a hillside in the north-west of Madikwe Game Reserve. The reserve is one of the largest in South Africa and is home to all the Big Five as well as an enormous number of different animals and species of bird. This is a non-malarial area.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
The main lodge has an intimate lounge, library, outside dining area, swimming pool and a large viewing deck from which there are spectacular views over the reserve.
The 10 suites are spacious and comfortable with en suite bathrooms and private decks where guests can sit out and relax. Two of them are larger, with an additional lounge, dining room and private plunge pool. Three of the suites have wonderful views of the waterhole where elephants can often be seen coming for a drink.
Game drives take place in the early morning and late afternoon. Bush walks are also possible, and guests may enjoy a massage in their suite.
Children are particularly welcome here. Children over six are allowed on the normal safaris (at the ranger's discretion), while younger children can be taken on a shorter "kiddies bumble safari". Babysitting is also available for parents who do not wish to take her children on safari.
