My wife and I stay at Impodimo a few years ago (Just getting round to reviewing my stay). From the very first minute to the last all I can say about Impodimo is Excellent. The food, rooms and service were top. We arrived just before afternoon tea and were treated to elephants drinking from the pool. Afterwards we had a nap for a few hours (after a 13 hour flight, 41/2 hour drive ((we got lost due to having no sleep on the plane)) ) in one of the best bed I have ever been in, the room was very nice with an out door shower. I loved sitting on our decked area watching the wild life walk pass.
All the safari were great our tracker spotted a pride of loins on the morning trip and in the evening we found the same loins minutes after a kill (well 2 kills) the smells, sounds and sights were out of this world. on a different trip a rhino walked pass of vehicle. I loved be the tea/drink breaks on each safari.
The evening food was out of the world – you do have to pay extra for drinks (may of changed now) but a good bottle of wine would only cost £15-20.
There is so much more I could say but I feel GO GO GO says it all
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- On a rugged dolomite ridge overlooking a vast African wilderness, you will find a hidden treasure called Impodimo. Taken from the Tswana words Mpho Dimo, Impodimo means a gift from God, and is truly a slice of heaven on earth. Rise in the morning to an African dawn and enjoy an early morning game drive with your dedicated professional ranger. Relax as your ranger guides you through the bush on a custom made open Land Rover, searching out the Big 5 or the smaller secrets of nature. Set out on a foot safari with your armed ranger and learn the secrets of tracking African game or just enjoy the trees, birds and stunning scenery. Return from the excitement of the bush to a sumptuous breakfast or brunch and then relax at the pool or the sala overlooking the waterhole where game may come to quench their thirst. In the afternoon, when the heat of the African sun has diminished and the shadows are longer, head out again on a sundowner safari, where you will stop to watch the sun set on this bushveld paradise and enjoy your favourite sundowner drink. Once the sun has set and darkness descends, set off again for a night safari where the more nocturnal creatures now rule the bush. Return to the lodge where you will be treated to the finest Pan-African cuisine with your hosts in the open air boma, and share your days adventures, while you enjoy a night cap around the fire. Impodimo Game Lodge is set along a rocky ridge commanding stunning vistas of the reserve. It is also located at the source of a natural spring, which provides the lodge with elevated views as well as riverine serenity. The lodge offers dawn and dusk safaris.
