***Please note that Mankwe Bush Lodge is currently closed as it is being rebuilt after the fire in 2016*** Mankwe Bush Lodge occupies a secret spot among the evergreen mopane trees in a 300 000 hectare private concession on the eastern boundary of Moremi Game Reserve. Mankwe, meaning ‘mother leopard’, offers privacy and safari comfort on the doorstep of the Okavango Delta.
Botswana’s expansive paradise runs wild around Mankwe’s 10 Meru-style tented chalets, where guests absorb presence of birds and wildlife, day and night. Canvas suites are mounted on wooden decks overlooking the bush.
Guests reside in the tranquil quietude of Mankwe, while daily safari excursions explore the Khwai wetlands, Moremi’s diverse wildlife habitats, as well as the network of private pans surrounding the lodge itself.
Mankwe Bush Lodge is located on the eastern edge of the Okavango Delta, 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 300 000 hectare concession, shared with sister lodge, Tuskers Safari Camp. 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.
