Situated on the banks of the Selati River, under the shadow of majestic wild fig trees, lies Makubu Lodge. The local communities have always referred to this pool in the river as "the place of the hippos", and every afternoon we enjoy a friendly visit from these magnificent animals. Makubu Lodge is a fusion of cultures and sights that we have experienced through multiple journeys in Africa. With original thatch roofs, terraces open to the river and a swimming pool hanging over the river, the lodge fits into the beauty of its surroundings.
Marakapula Reserve lays a step away to the world renowned Kruger National Park. The Selati river flows through Marakapula from west to east, its 7 huge dams give life and a special strength to this piece of Africa. Within the river banks you can find magnificent wild fig trees that will capture your sight with their long yellowish branches, thousand year old lead woods, whose wooden armours don't even decay after dead or tremendously tall tamboties with their red wood. These are only a few examples of the amazing variety of flora in the Reserve.
