With its open guest areas, friendly staff, and overall atmosphere of easy sociability, combined with the tranquil individual accommodations, Lelapa Lodge has something for everyone.
Lelapa, which is Setswana for “family”, invites you and your loved ones to enjoy the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve. An experience to be enjoyed by the whole family.
The lodge’s luxuriously laidback vibe and attentive hospitality ensures that you feel right at home with all the exciting discoveries of the game reserve right on your doorstep.
Your Home in Africa
All Lelapa luxury suites offer stunning views of the Madikwe Game Reserve that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your suite’s private deck, which includes an outdoor shower and plunge pool.
Four of the lodge suites are best suited for families with young children. Whether you want to spend time as a family or enjoy your own space, all guests can indulge in total, stress-free comfort and convenience. Each family suite provides a kids’ room equipped with bunkbeds, gown and slipper sets, and bedside hot-chocolate mugs as well as an array of toys, games, and books. While the children enjoy the perks of their stay, you and your partner can enjoy some much-needed alone time.
If you’d prefer a little more company, you can always take a plunge in the lodge’s larger guest pool and take in the sights of the animals doing the same at their very own watering hole just across the lawn.
