What a place, what an atmosphere! The lodges are beautifully set in the bush on the edge of a lagoon. They have a tranquility that sets you up for the one long table meals. This mode of serving lends itself to such friendliness. Not only sitting with other fellow travellers but some of the staff themselves enabling talk about the days sightings. Each safari was an experience with our guide Glynn who had so much knowledge, so polite, a true gentleman. Every member of staff were so accommodating so welcoming, I would 100% recommend this place a true gem in Botswana.

This was far and away our best experience in Botswana, and one of the nicest and most interesting places we have ever visited! Beautiful setting (one the edge of a lagoon, with hippos, elephants, and warthogs running and swimming nearby), very friendly and interesting staff, amazing food, and comfortable cabins. The animal drives were fun and very informative, and we felt we learned a lot, while also having some amazing encounters with the diverse wildlife of this fascinating part of the Delta. Highly recommended!

Everything about our stay at Mapula was excellent from the rustic accommodation to the great food and service. This is quite a small lodge with communal dining which encourages a personal connection with the staff and other travellers.Our guide Chaba made sure we got up close and personal to the animals, tracking a couple of lions who were roaring near the camp early one morning and racing across the savannah grasslands following leopard and hyena. The animals are plentiful in this reserve, we saw so many elephants, hippos, giraffes, zebras, ostriches, painted dogs, baboons, wildebeest and various types of antelope plus birds of all different sizes and colours. We also enjoyed a paddle in the mokoro canoe one evening with sunset drinks on the lagoon. Thank you Bokamoso (BK) and Mmoloki for your attentive service, we had a fantastic safari experience and would love to come back to Botswana and Mapula Lodge one day.

Mapula Lodge was the third camp we visited on our safari experience. The location was great, right on the water, with great animal sightings. Our guide, Costa, was very knowledgeable and did a great job driving us through the area and spotting animals. We got to see a cheetah and her cubs, a very rare sighting. Dining was al fresco and the food was exquisite. The only issue with dining was the use of paraffin lamps on the table which attracted bugs. One tip: In each cabin, there are pashmina-type scarves. During the heat of the day, my wife used one to keep cool. Get the scarf wet, wring it out, and drape it over your shoulders for instant air-conditioning. It really saved the day. Nono, BK, and the entire staff made us feel very much at home during our short stay. On the final night, they brought us an anniversary cake and the staff sang a traditional anniversary celebration song. It was truly memorable.
