A family vacation with our 5 year old son to go on his first game drive/safari was our goal and Impodimo did not disappoint. We received a warm welcome from Kayla and our ranger Hein and as we walked to our room got our first sighting of Kudu on the path to our room - yes there are no fences... More

Truly spectacular stay in Madikwe Game Reserve. Conveniently accessible from Johannesburg by car or air. Wonderful staff all around. Could not ask more. Fantastic and spacious lodge featuring outdoor shower, large balcony and bath tub with direct view of animals at waterhole barely 150 feet away. Terrific dining and drinks, both in the dining room and in-lodge. Wildlife truly beyond... More

We loved our time here, our only complaint was that we weren't able to stay longer. The lodge itself so cozy and beautiful in a rustic way, rooms are excellent especially if you get the rooms facing the watering hole. Just from our balcony everyday we were able to spot so many animals - even a herd of 15 elephants!... More

We had a fantastic four days at Impodimo. The staff and service were excellent, the rooms superb (we had the very spacious family suite), the food was delicious and the game drives were amazing. We saw a great range of animals and our guide and tracker (Hein and Sam) made our trip truly unforgettable. Nothing was too much trouble, and... More

It is now many years ago (7) that we were at Impodimo but now that I'm on TripAdvisor I feel compelled to review it because it was truly exceptional. I would rate it one of my top 3 experiences ever, the other two being the Chitwan jungle in Nepal and Ninamu in Tikehau in French Polynesia. At Impodimo we were... More

We were a party of 11, with ages ranging from 7 months to 90 years. Impodimo was perfect in every way - they thought of a hundred different ways of making us all welcome. No request was too much for the staff. The accommodation was luxurious, the food was novel and delicious. And the game viewing was unbelievable. I've been... More

Came here with my two brothers and mother and it was absolutely perfect. We only stayed for two nights, which was a bit too little as there still seemed to be much more to see. The accommodation was really good and the food was absolutely excellent. The game drives were spectacular. All staff were very helpful and friendly. Our ranger... More

Impodimo Lodge is a fantastic place to go to in order to experience the wild in a way you have never done before. The team are happy and helpful, the food was superb, and the accommodation more than comfortable and luxurious. The truly stand out part for us was the ranger team of Tyron and Sam. The tracking skills of... More

We had a wonderful time at Impodimo. The setting is beautiful, the lodge perfectly appointed, food delicious, and the staff marvelously knowledgeable and nice. We saw lots of animals and the pace was perfect. I simply could not have asked for a better, more pampered, more fun time.

My wife and I have been blessed to go to many wonderful places and have some great travel adventures. By the second day, we agreed that our Impodimo safari was the coolest, most fun thing we've ever done. I am an obsessive travel planner; I agonized over Kruger or Madikwe, which lodge, transportation options, etc etc. Madikwe and Impodimo were... More
