Mapula Lodge is situated in the private, game-rich Mapula Reserve within the northern Okavango Delta. The lodge occupies a stunning position on a large tree island at the edge of seasonal floodplains, overlooking a permanent lagoon complete with resident hippos.
Our view of Mapula Lodge
Having loved it in the past, we had been disappointed to see standards slip in recent years – and are now pleased to report that the camp is improving. The staff are generally doing a great job, but on our most recent visit clearly greater investment in the furnishings and other cosmetic elements of the camp was needed. We now cautiously recommend Mapula to travellers seeking a good-value Botswana safari in in a great game area – who are willing to overlook a few blemishes here and there.
