Royal Tree Lodge


On horseback in the Botswanan bush

Twenty minutes from Maun, along the banks of the Thamalakane River, you’ll find Royal Tree Lodge. One of the very few wilderness experiences that offers horseback safaris, Royal Tree is a popular choice for travellers who need to unwind after a long journey before setting off into the Okavango Delta.

Aside from the horse-riding through the lush wilderness, game drives into the Moremi Game Reserve and walking safaris through Royal Tree’s land can also be arranged. Get a bird’s-eye view on a scenic flight, displaying the winding channels and host of wildlife of the wild Okavango.

Accommodation comes in two forms at Royal Tree Lodge. Return to times gone by in a Maru-style Luxury Tent raised off the ground on wooden platforms and affording a spectacular view of the surrounding bush. Complete with full en suite facilities and an outdoor shower, if you’re feeling adventurous. If you are more of a solid-four-walls kind of person, the Honeymoon Chalet might interest you. It is decorated in a traditional style with a thatched roof and comes with a four-poster canopy bed and a deep, sunken bath.
