The Amarula Lapa is the hospitality centre for the now world-famous Spirit of Africa. Made from thatch, stone and wood, it is a simply constructed but luxurious and welcoming spot created from traditional materials.
Just 12km south west of Phalaborwa, guests can sample Amarula in a variety of ways, learn about the origins of the world-famous drink and buy Amarula memorabilia.
Close by is the processing plant where the fresh marula fruit is brought during the harvesting season (December-February). But the Lapa itself is open all year round to give visitors the chance to experience Amarula at its source. Visit the Amarula Lapa for a delightful lunch or taste the delicioust Amarula liqueur!
So, when you are next planning a visit to see Africa’s Big Five and are on your way to the Kruger National Park, come and stretch your legs at the Amarula Lapa. You’ll be glad you did.
