Discover the Diverse Wildlife of Southern Africa
Perched atop a craggy ridge with panoramic views of the awe-inspiring, malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa’s North West Province, Impodimo Game Lodge offers unparalleled luxury in the heart of the wild. The reserve itself is a sprawling expanse covering 75,000 hectares, and it shares its breathtaking landscapes and unique topography with neighbouring Botswana. It serves as a sanctuary for an impressive array of wildlife, including the coveted Big 5, the elusive Painted Wolf (African Wild Dogs), Cheetahs, and both Brown and Spotted Hyenas, as well as a diverse collection of large mammals and bird species.
At Impodimo Game Lodge, we warmly welcome guests of all ages, going the extra mile to craft an unforgettable safari adventure for both parents and children. Our customised kids’ program caters to all age groups, blending fun with education. Upon arrival, each child receives a personalised welcome pack filled with engaging activities to enjoy between safari outings. While kids aged six and up can join our regular game drives, we offer a shorter, attention-grabbing ‘kiddies bumble’ for our younger adventurers.
Relish a decadent brunch at our poolside lapa after your morning safari, and savour high tea in the afternoon while taking in sweeping views of the African landscape. As night falls, join us in the open-air boma for a gourmet Pan-African dining experience, where you can share stories and unwind with a nightcap around the fire.
During the cooler winter months, explore the untamed beauty of the park with your ranger and tracker on a full-day safari, punctuated by a scenic picnic lunch. Complete your day with a soothing massage on your private deck or at our elevated Sala viewing platform.
