As a welcome you will receive an indemnity form to fill in. That is because there is no fence around the campsite (which is not so nice spread across a labyrinth of sand roads). They don't care to explain to you about risks or appropriate...More

We loved our time at Mankwe. The facilities are fine, not super luxury but pretty good. The food was not bad as well. The best part was the staff. GG - the manager, was extremely helpful and friendly, taking the time to chat to us...More

Camping site are large and very private. Ablution facilities are basic but clean and efficient. running water (salty). Access road is through deep soft sand, so a 4x4 is essential. Very nice staff, Gege is such a gentleman :)

About
Description
Situated between the Moremi Game Reserve and the Chobe National Park, Mankwe Moremi Game ReserveMankwe Bush Lodge is an ideal gateway to exploring this area. Moremi is undoubtedly one of the most famous Parks in More Africa. Moremi Game Reserve is the only officially protected area of the Okavango Delta, and as such holds tremendous scientific, environmental and conservation importance. Moremi Game Reserve is situated in the central and eastern areas of the Okavango, and includes the Moremi Tongue and Chief's Island, boasting one of the richest and most diverse ecosystems on the continent. This makes for spectacular game viewing and bird watching, including all major naturally occurring herbivore and carnivore species in the region, and over 400 species of birds, many migratory and some endangered. Both Black and White Rhino have recently been re-introduced, now making the reserve a 'Big Five' destination. Contained within an area of approximately 3900 sq. kms, where land and Delta meet to create an exceedingly picturesque preserve of floodplains - either seasonally or perennially wet, waterways, lagoons, pools, pans, grasslands and riparian, riverine and mopane forests. This terrain makes driving Moremi's many loops and trails both delightful and, at times, totally inspiring. Overlooking the bush and mopane forest, Mankwe's tents offer comfortable accommodation. The 10 safari tents are set on wooden decks overlooking a small valley. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom with shower, wash basin and flush toilet. The camp is run on solar power. Walk in tents are furnished with either two x twin beds or a double bed, chair, bed side tables, water pourer, glasses, safari chairs on patio, steel clothes and hanging space, large open mosquito gauze windows, and front door. Towels and bathroom guest amenities are provided. (please bring swimming towels). Trips can be arranged between Mankwe Bush Lodge and the Mboma Boat Station up into the Okavango Delta, offering the visitor a unique safari tour with a full day's game viewing in between. Or combine a stay at Mankwe with a game drive tour of Moremi, and an overnight at Xobega Island Camp - offering a true Okavango Delta water based experience. Less
