Hidden in a grove of mopane trees and enchanted woodlands, Mankwe Tented Retreat offers a prime location for both land and water-based safari adventures in the lush Moremi Game Reserve. This simple yet stylish lodge, made from natural light wood, blends seamlessly with its forest surroundings and provides a chic retreat in one of Botswana's most sought-after regions.
This lodge is located in a prime spot in the wilds of Botswana, so it's no surprise that elephants, buffalo, lion, leopards, cheetahs, and wild dogs are frequent guests. If you're feeling adventurous, you can go on morning or afternoon game drives, or take a spotlight game drive at night. Mankwe is also a great jumping off point for exploring the Delta, where there are plenty of islands to discover. If the water's high enough, you can even go for a mokoro or boating adventure in the Moremi. And if you're more of a homebody, there are plenty of other activities to keep you entertained, like sundowner set-ups, birdwatching, and guided walks with the San people.
Raised on wooden platforms, each stunning Meru-style tented suite comes with its own private outdoor deck boasting 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, a private lounge area, and a second pool section complete with a chill area, sun loungers and the quintessential pool bar. Relax and unwind in this secluded sanctuary – you’re in the perfect place to watch the perennial drama of the African bushveld unfold.
