Impodimo Game Lodge offers great value for money and is one of the more child-friendly safari lodges in malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve. Eight glass-front Luxury Chalets and one Safari Suite all enjoy sweeping views of the African bush.

Luxury accommodation

Each Luxury Chalet has twin beds (king beds are available on request), a full en-suite bathroom with open-air outdoor showers, a closed system fireplace and a shaded, private patio.

Self-contained Safari Suite

The self-contained Safari Suite can sleep a maximum of six people. There are two suites, each with its private deck and en-suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers, a bathtub and a double basin.

The Safari Suite has a central lounge and dining facility, a kitchen, a bar and a waterhole-facing viewing deck. There is also a private pool fitted with a safety net.

Excellent game viewing

Impodimo Game Lodge has given much thought to providing the ultimate safari experience. Shangaan trackers are used on smaller game-viewing vehicles (seven-seater Land Rovers) that personalise the game-viewing experience. Children are thoughtfully catered for, too. A child-friendly 'bush bumble' gives them an insight into the fascinating, less dangerous creatures that make Madikwe their home.

Underground Elephant Hide

Well-positioned in the western part of Madikwe Game Reserve, near the Wonderboom Gate, Impodimo Game Lodge offers magnificent views over the plains below as well as the nearby waterhole where the wildlife often comes to drink. Guests can watch the wildlife gather at the water from the comfort of the air-conditioned, underground Elephant Hide which has a fully stocked bar and Italian coffee.

Getting there

By car - An easy three- to four-hour drive from Johannesburg and a two-hour drive from Gaborone. Road transfers can be arranged.

By air - There are daily scheduled flights from OR Tambo (Johannesburg) International to Madikwe airstrip (flight is ¾ hour). Chartered flights can be arranged.

Tau Game Lodge

Tau Game Lodge (Tau meaning 'lion' in Tswana) is in the far north-western corner of the malaria-free, Big 5 Madikwe Game Reserve. The vegetation here is less dense Kalahari-thornveld, easier for game spotting. The main lodge and luxury safari chalets all look out over the vast waterhole where a pageant of wildlife comes to drink at all hours of the day and night.
