Mpala Lodge turned out to be better than we could've have imagines. Driving to the lodge we were stopped in our path to elephant and giraffe's crossing. We were welcomed by the whole staff and swept away to a fabulous lunch. Our accommodations were perfect, the whole staff was amazing and took such great care of us. Mpala is unique... More

This Lodge is absolutely stunning, perfectly situated by the Olifant river and with relatively nice chalets. The long drive via dirt roads into the logde and the accompanying "african massage" is well worth the effort. What really sets Mpala apart from the rest, is the fabulous staff and their welcoming way of recieving guest. As they say themselves, you come... More

Our ranger John made ​​us feel completely safe in his care, so we came very close to the amazing animals and followed animal tracks. The food was made by the lodge's cook who made... More
