Tucked away in a grove of mopane trees and mysterious woodlands, this safari lodge sanctuary offers its visitors an unbeatable location close to both land and water-based safari activities.
In 2016, before a devastating fire raged throughout, the lodge was called Mankwe Bush Lodge. The lodge underwent a rebuild, design, and name change to Mankwe Tented Retreat. It's now a simple yet stylish affordable lodge in one of Botswana's most coveted regions. The retreat is constructed from natural light wood, ensuring a sense of harmony with its forested surroundings.
In total, there are 10 tented suites each with a private viewing deck with views of the wilderness. The tranquil main area of the lodge houses a swimming pool, dining and lounge area, and small relaxation enclaves that effortlessly flow through the pool area. If that's not enough, there's a small spa treatment room, private lounge area, and a second pool section complete with a chill area, sun loungers and quintessential pool bar.
The charming Mankwe Tented Retreat is situated in a private concession on the doorstep of the game-rich Moremi Game Reserve.
The retreat is located on the eastern edge of the Okavango Delta, a renowned World Heritage Site in Botswana.
The border of the Moremi Game Reserve lies a stone’s throw to the west of Mankwe, while Chobe National Park is slightly north, and Maun is only two hours south, by road.
The lodge is nestled in a prime location in its own 365 000 hectare concession.
This is a prestigious territory in the wild wonderland of Botswana, where the lack of fences allows for free-roaming wildlife, resident lions, an abundance of elephants, and incomprehensible room to explore.
