We came here on our honeymoon and we were totally blown away. This is our first time safari and didn't know what to expect. From the very moment we got there we saw all kinds of animals (straight from the airfield). Once we arrived at the hotel our words were completely lost. This place absolutely stunning. The location, the villas... More

This was a perfect getaway in the bush! They only have 6 lodges what we prefer over the bigger commercialised places. Makes it very personal, that you have your dinner with your ranger! Loved every minute of it. We're foodies and was very impressed with their breakfast/dinner choice and quality. The decoration is so tasteful and very unique, and truly... More

Wonderful accommodation overlooking water hole. Plenty of tasty food - not good for the waistline! Excellent safaris with Cornel (??should have asked spelling). Saw all of big 5 and many more besides. Not very good at 5.00 am rising but it has to be done. Would love to take grandchildren back there - such an experience.

We spent two nights at Impodimo. Everyone was incredibly friendly, the accommodation was superb, the food excellent and our Rangers Tyrone and Sam did absolutely everything possible to maximise our experience. We had close encounters with Leopard, cheetahs, Lions, White Rhino and black rhino, elephants, giraffe, buffalo and even a pack of wild dogs. No hesitation in recommending to family... More

My husband & I spent 4 days at Impodimo. We both loved & miss it already. Everyone was kind and helpful, nice food, great safaris, beautiful setting what more could you ask for. Our guides Ruan & Sam were fantastic, seen & learnt so much. We would defiantly recommend staying here wish I was there now.

Impeccable service, delicious, copious meals, a good wine list and comfortable, spacious and charming accommodation. each room with its generous outside area and in most cases. like ours, overlooking a waterhole with varied animal action.

This was our first safari experience, and we loved it. We spent three days at the lodge, and saw the big five, and so much more. Our Ranger, Tyronne, was brilliant. He had detailed knowledge on a whole range of conservation issues and natural phenomena, in addition to the animal behaviour and flora we saw. Sammy, our tracker and spotter,... More

Everyone talks about the Big Five, and they are awesome to find and to see and marvel at. But Impodimo does so much more by showing you the little things too, and by fully informing you on animal behaviour, conservation, the uses of the various plants, etc. This time we were there for just a long weekend, and in four...
