The Mapula Safari Lodge is in the North-Eastern region of the Okavango Delta, just outside the Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana, Southern Africa.

The Mapula is an exclusive Safari Lodge situated ideally to provide both land and waterborne activities to its guests.

The shallow channels and floodplains invite guests to the quiet canoe trips in the clear Delta waters while the larger islands surrounding the Lodge are home to a wide variety of game which can best be viewed from open 4x4 safari drive vehicles.

The traditional design and use of natural log create a large central lounge with an open balcony featuring a small library, open-air bar, and curio shop. Guests also have access to the lodge's refreshing swimming pool.

The main building of the Lodge with its extensive decks overlooks the permanent lagoon where the resident pod of hippopotamus resides. It is here where guests will find the comfortable lounge, dining area and a bar area with one of the best views in the Okavango Delta. A small library and swimming pool complete the central area.

Game viewing is this particular area of Botswana is exquisite and the trees surrounding are home to a large variety of birds. Being in a permanent water zone, the Lodge can offer year-round water activities, especially important during January - May when water levels in the Okavango can become too small in most area's to allow the use of the traditional mokoro. Guests may also take part in the walking safaris with experienced guides and tracker while night drives are in search of nocturnal animals. In the early morning and late afternoons, safari drives are taken out in comfortable safari vehicles.

Exclusive accommodation, excellent service and professional game guiding are equally important at this Lodge in the Okavango Delta. Each of the nine luxury chalets at the Mapula Lodge features a traditional design and use of the natural log.

The attention to detail and use of local craftsmanship in the construction of the Chalets is particularly impressive and attractive. The guest rooms at the Lodge offer a small lounge and a full bathroom, which is complete with a bathtub and an outside shower.
