Mapula Lodge (Okavango Delta)
Cradled in the outstretched arms of a hippo lagoon and
nestled deep into the Okavango Delta, Mapula Lodge is the
perfect Botswana safari destination for anyone wanting to
experience the beauty of untouched African wilderness.
A small camp, Mapula Lodge offers flexibility that only
an owner operated lodge can afford. From birding safaris
within the belly of a mokoro, to village visits and night
games drives the warm, friendly and knowledgeable staff at
Mapula Lodge are there to help you experience it all!
Mapula Lodge is situated on a private concession of 12
000 hectares in the northwest seasonal floodplains of the
Okavango Delta - the concession borders with the world
famous Moremi National Park.
The lodge itself is wrapped around the trunks of African
hardwoods, with the roots and branches featuring throughout
the camp. The panoramic view from each room engulfs you in
the wonders of your surroundings, while the private
verandas, shaded under the canopy of the delta, provide you
with an ideal spot for high tea or sundowners. Mapula Lodge
has eight double rooms and one family chalet.
Each room is up on stilts, reaching above the bush scrub,
and has an en-suite bathroom complete with open air shower
and deep, more traditional style, zinc bath tub. The rooms
either have large double beds or two spacious single beds, a
small lounge area and a private veranda. If you are travelling with small children our family
chalet is perfect for you – it gives Mum and Dad the privacy
of their own room and bathroom, safe in the knowledge that
their precious little ones are on the other side of an
The Mapula Lodge is an exclusive Safari Lodge situated
ideally to provide both land and waterborne activities to
its guests. The shallow channels and floodplains invite
guests to the tranquil canoe trips in the clear Delta
waters, while the larger islands surrounding the Mapula
Lodge are home to a wide variety of game which can best be
viewed from open 4x4 game drive vehicles.
The traditional design and use of natural log at the
Mapula Lodge in Botswana creates a unique large central
lounge with an open balcony featuring a small library,
open-air bar and curio shop. Guests also have access to the
lodge's refreshing swimming pool.
The main building of the Mapula Lodge with its extensive
decks overlooks the permanent lagoon where the resident pod
of hippopotamus resides. It is here where guests will find
the comfortable lounge, dining area and a bar area with one
of the best views in the Okavango Delta. A small library and
swimming pool completes the main area.
