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. The safaris are carefully timed to ensure optimal seasonal comfort.

Whilst Impodimo has 10 suites, its capacity is 16 guests, each of the suites have been carefully positioned to ensure absolute privacy. Spacious in design, each includes a closed system fireplace, climate control air conditioner, mini bar fridge, tea & coffee making facilities and full en-suite bathroom and outside shower. Your private deck allows uninterrupted views of the Madikwe Game Reserve.

The owner/manager team of Steve and Debbie are ideally suited to tailoring the most memorable safari experience, Whilst Steve is a highly qualified expert ranger, Debbie adds impressive culinary qualifications to the team.

The team has gone to great lengths to ensure that guests have as much choice as possible in enjoying their experience, for example, 7-seater landrovers are used instead of the traditional 10 seater type. Impodimo is the first lodge in Madikwe Game Reserve to have qualified Shangaan trackers as part of the team. This adds a different dimension to the safari experience ensuring consistent big game sightings.

With fewer guests on landrovers the team encourages guests to maximise optimal game viewing times, for example this may include a full day safari in winter with a picnic lunch stop.

Safari isn’t just safari anymore, and game lodges aren't all alike. Every visit really does need to be special and every moment something to be remembered forever. The Bush House is not your typical game lodge. It is an old farmhouse that after years of family laughter and happiness, has been transformed into an inviting and relaxing residence that encourages guests to kick off their shoes and unwind.

Set in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, it’s your home in Big 5 country. We have five en-suite rooms each tastefully furnished and equipped with air-conditioning, fans, hairdryers, coffee and tea facilities and percale linen. The en-suite bathrooms have separate showers and baths and have toiletries supplied.

Our chefs create a wonderful culinary repertoire whether it is breakfast in the garden, afternoon tea packed with treats or a fire lit dinner in the boma. Relax in the shaded garden overlooking the best waterhole in Madikwe or lounge at the pool watching the game come and drink.

Experience our new underground hide. View all the animals and birds coming to drink up close from the safety of the hide. Take photographs you would never believe possible.

There are two game drives daily conducted under the expertise of our fully qualified field guides. That’s why people come back to The Bush House, again and again. For most of our guests it’s just like that, like coming home - even for the first time.

Make the Bush House your home away from home.
