Mankwe Tented Retreat

Mankwe Tented Retreat occupies a secret spot among the evergreen mopane trees in a 365 000 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 can absorb the presence of birds and wildlife, day and night. Beautifully constructed wood and canvas suites are mounted on raised decks overlooking the bush.

The central area houses a swimming pool with expansive decking that flows through to a dining area and small boma. The deck area is adorned with deck chairs and there are various sheltered enclaves for relaxing. Leading out from the main wooden walkway is a second swimming pool, complete with sun loungers, umbrellas, and a pool bar. But that’s not all – there’s also a lounge/reading area branching off from the meandering walkway, offering a complete sense of privacy. On-site, there’s also a small spa treatment room where treatments can be booked in advance.

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.

The property is not located in Moremi Game Reserve or Chobe, but is located on a private concession that borders both the parks which makes day trips a possibility.
