Mankwe Tented Retreat redefines the art of simple luxury with its effortless design and quintessential bushveld retreat-style architecture. It’s not only Mankwe’s fresh take on bushveld living that is a major drawcard: it’s also the price tag. It’s no secret that finding a stylish yet affordable Botswana safari lodge close to Moremi can be as scarce as hen’s teeth, which is why Mankwe is set to make waves in the budget-friendly bracket of Botswana accommodation. Not only is Mankwe well-positioned, but it offers visitors the opportunity to experience elegant dining, spa treatments, game drives, and stylish spaces for a fraction of the cost of their competitors. Mankwe is worth it.
Mankwe Tented Retreat is the ideal Botswana safari lodge close to Moremi. The retreat has 10 Meru-style tented suites individually erected on raised wooden platforms. Tents are built from a mix of typical safari canvas and light wood, giving it a fresh ambiance. Each suite is plush, furnished with handwoven artifacts, and decorated with contemporary softs. En suite bathrooms enveloped by canvas walls overlook the bushveld beyond, inviting the wilderness inside. Mankwe has a spa treatment room, two swimming pools, an outdoor dining area, and plenty of relaxation areas.
Daily game drives provide the perfect introduction to the 365 000 hectare concession. This well-positioned Botswana safari lodge also offers game drives into the heart of the Moremi Game Reserve and the waterways of the Okavango Delta. After a day spent exploring the Moremi and Delta, indulging in the best of the land and water-based safaris, guests can retire to a strategically based boma and campfire area at Mankwe.
Mankwe Tented Retreat is located only 96km from Maun. Mankwe is 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. You could not ask for a better position for a varied safari experience in Botswana.
