Impodimo, Madikwe Game reserve
Over the years Madikwe Game Reserve in the North-West province has become very well known, not only for its great game viewing, but also for its world class game lodges. In amongst these there are a few gems that stand out. One of these is Impodimo Game Lodge, which lies in the south western sector of this 70 000 hectare reserve. As they say, first impressions are lasting, and in this case, the impression will linger forever.
With only 8 luxury chalets and the opulent Deluxe suite etched into the hillside, you can be assured of personalized service which is unpretentious, just like the lodge. You will want for nothing, as it has all been carefully thought through for you. There is no clutter. It just works. Pan-African cuisine is served up in the boma in the evenings, after all, what would a bush experience be without a dinner under the stars. In the cooler winter months picnics in the bush are on offer.
Out on game drive you will realize why this reserve is so popular for its game viewing. Obviously, everyone wants to see the big five, which roam freely in reserve, but with over 90 species of animals it’s the overall game viewing experience that is hard to beat. Trackers accompany you on game drive and bush walks. Their ability to read the sights and sounds of the bush is uncanny, and tracking is truly an art. What to do with the little ones too young to go on game drive? Don’t worry, they have that covered too. There’s a kiddies bumble just short enough to hold their attention. That’s important.
We know it’s tough in Africa, but when the going gets really tough, you can always spoil yourself and opt for an in-room massage. Who needs a spa when you can have it done in complete privacy. In the end, it’s all about the overall experience, and this is where Impodimo Game Lodge delivers. Once you’ve been, you’ll understand.
