About Topi Lodge
Part of a chain of lodges managed by Mamaland Safaris, Topi Lodge aims to offer you a comfortable, cosy and budget-friendly stay whilst keeping you as close to nature as possible. The staff work hard to provide top service, tasty meals, and a relaxing stay.
July 2018 saw the beginning of Topi Lodge's construction after the perfect location was found for it. Bordering the park on one side with incredible views of the local villages and immense mountains on the other. The target during building Topi Lodge was to use naturally sourced materials as much as possible in its structure. Both the poles that support the lodge, and the grass on the rooves both come from nearby villages.
Rooms & Amenities
From one of their budget-friendly private cottages, enjoy the lovely views that surround the lodge before settling in for the night in a comfortable bed.
Topi Lodge has rooms that can be set up as a twin, double or single room as well as a triple bed option.
Attached to each bed is a must-have mosquito net, and all rooms are self-contained with a spacious bathroom boasting a relaxing warm shower to unwind in after a long day of exploring.
