Accommodation rating: Good Standard
Mapula Lodge is located in a stunning position set on the edge of seasonal floodplains in the private Mapula Reserve. The lounge and dining area of Mapula Lodge is built in traditional thatch complete with a small library, curio shop and large deck where you can sit in the shade of an ancient African ebony tree looking at the resident wildlife that comes to the camp’s waterhole. The lower deck features a small pool and the bush bar is a popular gathering point for pre-dinner drinks.
There are nine stone and thatch chalets at Mapula Lodge, all well spaced apart, ensuring a strong sense of privacy. The rooms have very large meshed windows, which allow for great views over the surrounding landscapes and all come complete with private viewing decks to take advantage of the excellent birdlife around the camp.
Activities here focus on day and night wildlife drives, mokoro (dug-out canoe) trips and guided walks. Aside from the excellent birdlife, the Mapula Reserve has excellent populations of elephants and buffaloes as well as red lechwes, impalas, kudus, zebras, wildebeest, steenboks, waterbucks, reedbucks, porcupines, hyenas, jackals, genets, caracals and lions. Wild dogs also den in the area and leopards are regularly seen.
