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

Every time we visit the Impodimo Game Lodge, it just gets better and better! We did not think this was possible, but it does!!! Not only is the accommodation ultra-luxurious, but the food, pampering and staff simply go from good to better to THE BEST!!!!

I went on my first safari with high expectations, based on what I had heard from others, but Impodimo FAR exceeded everything I had expected. From the moment we arrived on the property the staff was warm, friendly, and inviting. I'm relatively certain that we didn't lift a finger the entire time that we were there. The service was impeccable... More

When i booked this game reserve i was worried. Anyone who reads my reviews knows that i have two kids i thought they would find it boring! it was anything but boring. We stayed in the big family suite. The only problem i found was the price was overwhelming. We really enjoyed it and got two meters away from a... More

Amazing lodge with amazing amenities. The accommodations are luxurious and comfortable. Everything you can want and ever need. Amazing views from the room overlooks a waterhole teaming with wildlife. The food was delicious and prepared with love and attention to detail. Very high end dining in the bush. The wildlife exceeds expectations. We saw the Big 5 on our very... More

Close to a perfect set up with outstanding food and extremely knowledgeable, highly motivated guides. Dinner a little rushed for my liking but I understand that some cultures require a super fast service.
