    Madikwe Lelapa Lodge

    Madikwe Lelapa Lodge is equally elegant and family friendly. It is renowned for remarkable family game-viewing adventures and offers a Kids’ Eco-House where little rangers can stay entertained and learn about the wild. Lelapa means family — representing the lodge’s dedication to provide an extraordinary safari adventure to guests of all ages.

    Lelapa Lodge shared areas perfectly marry rustic natural materials with sophisticated elegance. A choice of lounges, viewing decks, and a communal pool provide space for guests to relax, read a book, cool down on hot days, or simply enjoy the magical views together.

    The lodge offers 12 Deluxe Suites, each with its own private viewing deck and plunge pool. The family units feature adjoining rooms for families with younger children.

The photography, birding, astronomy, and tracking expertise of Lelapa Lodge guides will add tremendous value to your experience. Guests can also join on local community visits to partake in development programmes. These community visits take your safari to a new level, allowing you to learn about the vibrant local culture and heartfelt hospitality of the people.

    Mealtimes are a celebration of local traditions and international favorites and can be enjoyed indoors, on the outdoor dining deck, or beneath starry skies in a lantern-lit boma. At Lelapa the entire family is guaranteed to have the adventure of a lifetime thanks to special kids’ activities, meals, amenities, and a whole lot of luxury.
