Mapula Lodge's blissfully-uncrowded tented camp welcomes guests into its fantastic world of glassy lagoons and palm-fringed islands in the Okavango Delta.
Feel right at home at Mapula Lodge, where trumpeting elephants and hippos are your neighbors in this delightful corner of Botswana. In the middle of all this beauty, on a large tree island surrounded by flood plains, sits the exclusive lodge. The area has only a handful of camps, making it short on crowds and enhancing its natural appeal.
While its surrounds are quiet, Mapula Lodge is packed with character. Chic brass lanterns, Malawi chairs, quirky elephant lamps, and red rugs add visual interest. Metal four-poster beds are topped with plush pillows, a welcome destination after days spent on safari. Freshen up in your en-suite bathroom’s indoor and outdoor showers.
Cooling off in the hot Delta afternoons is a must. Soak in the swimming pool just like the hippos do in the adjacent lagoon, or you could lounge on one of the very colorful sofas topped with patterned pillows. Woven basket lighting hangs from the thatched ceiling to add both light and interest.
