Mapula Lodge occupies a stunning position in a game-rich, private concession, or reserve, within the northern Okavango Delta. Set on a large tree island at the edge of seasonal floodplains, it overlooks a permanent lagoon complete with resident hippos and varied birdlife. Following a change of ownership in 2018, there have already been some significant changes, with plans to rebuild the chalets and main area in 2020 – and potentially to change the name to Jack's Island Lodge.

Our view of Mapula Lodge

Mapula is an old favourite of ours. Standards did slip for a while but on our two most recent visits we have witnessed some promising changes, and there are plans to completely rebuild the rooms and main area. For now, don't expect five-star luxury, though for travellers seeking a good-value Botswana safari in an area of plentiful game area with good guiding, Mapula would make a sound choice.
