We arrived at Mapula on an extremely hot day (42 degrees Celsius) and our cabin was unbearably hot in the afternoon and, without air conditioning or fans, we were very uncomfortable. However, by evening, it cooled down and by nighttime, we needed a duvet to keep warm. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the meals were very good....

The lodge is in a lovely situation overlooking a lagoon, where you can take boat and mokoro trips. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Food was generally very good. Rooms are on stilts overlooking the lagoon. Ours shook, a bit, one night as the elephants scratched their backs on it! The density of game was not as great...

Lovely food, drinks by the fire overlooking the lagoon, boat rides, lunch on an island and very comfortable and spacious rooms. Quite an adventurous drive in while their airstrip is upgraded.

A good last minute substitution. Very comfortable accommodation and friendly staff. Our surprise island lunch was wonderful. Costa and Mike were a top-notch guiding team spotting leopard and cheetah as well as all the usual animals. If you book check that their airstrip is open as we had an over 2 hour drive to a neighbouring one. We hope Manager,...

We SO excited to be going on safari in the Okavango, and were, amazingly, not in the slightest bit disappointed. Mapula lodge is lovely, well situated near a water lily/ hippo pool, facing West for gorgeous sunsets. The grass was long when we were there, at the beginning of the flooding season (late May), but we did see animals and...

Like the rest of this small private game park, set in the Okavanga Delta, the public loo has a wonderful view of a lush lagoon or pool, with it's resident hippos, flights of birds, herds of animals, all coming close to graze and drink the cool, clear water. Our guides Costa and Carl were awesome! Their depth of knowledge of...

We had a wonderful stay at Mapula, the team at Mapula were great, our guide and tracker went to great lengths to ensure we experienced all the Delta has to offer. Food and beverages were plentiful and nothing was too much trouble. This is a remote location (so perhaps not for the precious type) but that is what adds to...

Spent 3 nights at this beautiful lodge nestled deep in the delta. Rustic lodging with open air rooms makes for a great experience. It was wonderful to wake up to the sound of grunting hippos! Great food and we always felt very well taken care off. A huge shout out to the guides and trackers who really know their stuff...

The warm welcome by the manager and Mapula's choir was just the start of a wonderful safari experience. Every moment of our stay was a pleasure and this not only because of the superb location, the great accommodation, exciting activities and game sightings but also the staff who went an extra mile to make our stay unforgettable. We had some...
