Enjoy a sun downer on your own patio whilst listening to the sounds of the wild.  Game drives are also on offer, where you will encounter a wide variety of species such as, Jackal, Zebra, Wildebeest, Ostriches, Eland, Kudu and many more

 
 

There are many activities which we make available for the entertainment of our guests during your safari experience at Impangele Game Lodge.

Be spoilt for choice
From sundowners on your private patio – with duiker antelope, ostrich and tortoises feeding just metres away from you – stargazing, bird or game watching, Impangele will offers much to entertain you, restore you and put you in touch with the very essence of the earth. 

Simply chat to us on arrival (or during your stay) and we’ll make all the necessary arrangements for you to explore, be pampered or simply indulge. Most activities need to be booked in advance, so it’s best let us know as soon as possible what you would like to do.

Immerse yourself in roots and culture 
The Cradle of Humankind is a World Heritage Site first named by UNESCO in 1999. The site is home to caves where the 3 miillion year-old Australopithecus africanus fossil (the famous Mrs Ples) was discovered in 1947. Excavation still continues and the area offers a rich and fascinating glimpse into history and legend. Take a step back in time and visit: 

  • the Maropeng Centre for a journey through the evolution of life;
  • the Stekfontein Caves where Mrs Ples and Little Foot were found;
  • hominid fossil sites together with an anthropologist for a mind-blowing look at the past;
  • the Lesedi Cultural Village for an enriching cultural experience of dance, hand-crafted goods and tasty African fare;
  • the Wonder Caves;
  • the Old Kromdraai Gold Mine where you can experience the life of a miner a century ago

Get in touch with nature
Whether you want to sit back and relax at a watering hole, or get a little more active, you’ll find yourself not just in the heart of nature but in a place where man and animal peacefully co-exist. Take pleasure in any of the following:
