Safari Lifestyles View

 

Mapula lodge sits overlooking the floodplains of the northern regions of the Okavango Delta. This simple lodge offers good levels of accommodation at a reasonable price. Compared to other regions, this area is a little marginal and is doesn't really have the regular game sightings of its bigger counterparts, however its is still possible to see everything you would associate a great safari here.

 

The lodge has definitely improved over recent years but could possibly do with some refurbishment.

The Camp

Camp Overview

 

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!

Lodge Layout

 

The lodge itself is wrapped around the trunks of African hardwoods, with the roots and branches featuring throughout the camp.

The main area is construction in the traditional safari style of wood, gumpole and thatch. Inside there is a lounge and dining area. Its quite a simple affair but pleasing nonetheless and conveys a good feeling in that its quite rustic and feels right for the area.

 

Outside onto the viewing deck is a small plunge pool.

Room Description

 

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 trees, provide you with an ideal spot for high tea or sundowners.

 

Each Chalet is quite open and built on raised old wood decking and houses a large and comfortable bed covered in mosquito netting for the evenings. To the front the room has a large open windowed area to accent the view.

 

Basic seating can be found within you room together with an adequate toilet and shower area.

Camp Environment

 

The camp itself sits on a lovely small tree lined Island overlooking the Delta Floodplains.  The general area is dotted with the same with a myriad of floodplains and islands.
