About Impodimo Game Lodge
Carved from the hillside, eight glass-fronted luxury chalets line a natural spring. Each chalet offers spectacular scenery. The lodge enjoys spectacular views extending as far as the eye can see. Visit in summer and laze on the pool deck with a chilled chardonnay. Or join us on a winter safari and retire to the library with a cognac. Stoke the fire in your suite and gaze out at the stars before drifting away with vivid images of unrestricted close encounters with Africa's big game.
The main purpose of the Madikwe game reserve is to create economic and social improvement for the surrounding communities. The Park achieves this currently through lodges like Impodimo. We create employment and impart skills and training to 30 staff. Of these, 23 are from the local communities, and many of these are sole or significant breadwinners for their households. Many of those that we employ have never had jobs before joining Impodimo. Impodimo also makes use of local suppliers and services, which further generate employment and stimulate entrepreneurship in the community.
Impodimo makes a donation to the community of R25 per person per night for every guest that stays with us. This money is paid into a trust, of which Impodimo, the Parks Board and community representatives are trustees. This money will be used for projects that we select, such as helping to develop new local businesses.
Each luxury suites features twin beds with the option of king beds available on request, full en-suite bathrooms with outdoor showers, closed system fireplaces and private deck.
