To all the staff of Mapula Lodge Thank you so much for the wonderful time, John and I have had over the last time days. I didn’t know what to expect when first arriving at the airstrip and being greeted by Philemon and Mike, but the beauty of the surrounding areas, wetlands and then the first glimpse of the lodge was breath taking. Our lodge rooms, the meals and boat trips and game rides were fabulous. Last night celebrations for independence were a wonderful finale to our stay. Thank you also for all the staff that joined us at this meal and celebration. With fondest memories and best wishes For all your future endeanours
