A big thank you to all at Ipodimo. Just back from a 3 night stay that delivered on all accounts. Fantastic lodge staff (thank you Linda and team) and a terrific ranger (Declan) and tracker (Lotty). You all made our experience memorable. Fantastic accomodation, amazing food (and plenty of it) and each game drive offered something completely different. If you...

Madikwe is a very special reserve and this a very special lodge. Ipodimo is located near the border with Botswana and enjoys stunning views standing as it does on an impressive hillside within the 75000 hectare big five reserve. The layout and accomodation is rather unusual in that the 8 chalets are glass fronted looking out over a waterhole which...
