Our 2 night stay was extremely good. The staff attended to our every need. Ruan and Sam,the game drive guide and tracker, were very knowledgeable finding the big 5 on 3 drives. They also helped one of our party with Parkinson's on/off the jeep. The lodge is very tastefully decorated and rooms have massive beds with inside/outside showers. One thing... More

We loved, loved, loved our stay at Impodimo. This was our last stop of a three week trip to Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia and South Africa and wow, what a way to finish our trip. We are frequent visitors to Madikwe and got married within this beautiful reserve 5 years ago. We have stayed at a number of different lodges and... More

This place was absolutely amazing. This was our first trip to Africa and we did extensive research on different lodges and parks and we could not have been happier with where we ended up. Everything exceeded any expectation that a review and pictures online could create. The lodge is beautiful and the pictures of the rooms you can find online... More

Exceptional experience. It started with the phone call on our way to Impodimo Lodge " Just checking that our travel there is going fine" to the welcome on arrival, an experience that just makes you fall in love with the place. So what do I like about Impodimo Lodge? the answer is simple: everything. The service was attentive but never... More

When reality exceeds expectation you know you've gone to the right place! From before we arrived to the moment we left we were given 5* service with a smile. Lodgings were impeccable as was the service, food, and game drives. From our hostess Kaila, to our Guide Cornel and his eagle eyed Tracker Sam, we couldn't have asked for better.... More

My friend and I went for the weekend. This washy first safari in South Africa; until then I had only been to the Okavango Delta in Botswana. The staff at Impodimo were very nice, our guide was excellent. His name was Rolland--his tracker was Holiday. They were both great at what they did--Rolland was full of information and very funny...

From the moment we were welcomed by Michelle to the day we said Goodbye to husband Matt there was never a dull moment. The accomodations are great (OK so our bath coating was a tad chipped - its not the Ritz!) beds turned down, mosquito nets put up, really most comfortable. Food was excellent, as was the wine. Priscilla and... More

If you want luxury and wildlife at your doorstep go to Impodimo Lodge. We had elephants through the camp every day with plenty of other smaller game around. The food was gourmet and catered well for gluten free requirements. Being only one hour from Gaborone, this lodge is one of best especially for game viewing which lucky for us included... More

We had stayed at another lodge the night before and were a bit sceptic if the experience could be topped during our 3 night stay at Impodimo. Firstly the lodge is in easy reach from Wonderboom Gate, however reception was okay, but not so nice and well organised as in the previous lodge. But the rest absolutely topped our expectations!...
