Safari Lodge on the Weboro Lagoon, with panoramic views of the Okavango Delta, Botswana.
The charming Mankwe Tented Retreat is situated in a private concession on the doorstep of the famous Moremi Game Reserve. Tucked away in a grove of mopane trees this safari lodge offers its visitors an unbeatable location close to incredible safari experiences.
In 2016, after a devastating fire destroyed Mankwe Tented Retreat, the entire lodge was rebuilt from the ground up and reopened in 2021. Our architects have successfully merged the structure of the main area with the surrounding environment, carefully integrating natural materials with modern design elements such as clean lines, neutral colours, and soft lighting. The tented rooms exude a similar Scandinavian style with their sophisticated log cabin feel combined with canvas.
In total, there are 10 tented rooms. The tents are built on raised wooden platforms, each with their own private viewing deck. Expansive bedrooms offer a configuration of two twins or a king-sized bed. Bathrooms are ensuite with a shower and offer breathtaking views of the surrounding wilderness through the canvas windows. Each room has a fan for cooling off during the sizzling summer months.
The main area comprises a small swimming pool surrounded by wooden decking that flows through to various sheltered sections for relaxing and onto a dining area with the cosy boma adjacent. From here, a meandering wooden walkway winds its way to a second swimming pool complete with wooden decking, sun loungers and an intimate pool bar.
Another enclave breaks away from the central area and leads to a small relaxation lounge and games/reading area. Eager safari-goers can tailor-make their own activity schedule. Most guests opt for full-day excursion into the Khwai River section of Moremi, and boat cruises through the Okavango Delta’s reed lined channels (at an added cost). Visitors wanting something a little closer to home can join game drives and sundowner sessions on Mankwe’s concession.
