A sense of Africa

Yet nothing compared to the real thing…

Watch the spectacular recordings

Safari in South Africa is a unique experience. Even though many have tried it, so far no one has managed to put these experiences into words that quite cover it. There simply isn’t words to describe the feeling you feel inside when you are in the midst of the wild and untamed. That is why we have made some videos to give you a sense of how it feels to stay at the Mpala Safari Lodge – but believe us when we say that the videos are nothing compared to real life. Enjoy!

Listen– and use your senses

When you are on a safari in South Africa, you will experience something extraordinary. All your senses are activated: especially your ears. All the new unfamiliar sounds so foreign to us are really activating our most primitive instincts. Here you can have a taste of what you can expect to hear going on a safari in South Africa. We will add new sounds to the gallery whenever possible. Enjoy!

The roaring of the lions as extra spice and the most beautiful starry night

Dear everybody at the Mapala. We have felt terribly spoilt, well treated, and we have enjoyed every minute. Our week has gone by in a flash. It is amazing the way the program for the week has been put together with new experiences every single day. The knowledge of the rangers and their ability to pass on this knowledge is top notch, their passion for their job, their empathy for nature so contagious that you just follow their lead. Whether you look for animal droppings or tracks, are animal spotting, or listen to information about the eco system in the bush from beetle to the elephants – and how everybody is depending on each other and each play their part. The visit to the school and kindergarten shows how important it is to help. The fact that Mpala have decided to give aid and support to these projects is very inspiring – so thank you, Per, that this also became part of our experience.
