Royal Tree Lodge

Maun, Botswana

Mango Opinion

We rarely have people overnight in Maun. But when they do, this is the nicest place to stay in town.

Royal Tree Lodge is situated on a small game farm on the outskirts of Maun - the perfect place to start or end your safari holiday in Botswana. When it comes to places to stay in Maun, why stay at a hotel when you can stay at a hotel at home? The "Tree Lodge," as it is affectionately known, is without doubt the best and most interesting accommodation in Maun. It is not only a one night stay, but the lodge owners are proud of the fact that we get so much repeat business and that some regulars stay for many days at a time.

Seven specially designed en-suite tents on teak decks sit under a canopy of indigenous trees, sited in such a way as to ensure privacy and to heighten the feeling of being in the remote African bush. Each luxurious tent has twin beds, overhead fan and magnificent slipper bath. For those who want to get closer to nature, each tent has its very own outdoor shower. The lodge also has two new thatched honeymoon chalets, very private, tastefully furnished and superbly comfortable. Large sunken baths and an outside shower with a view into the woods will make your stay a memorable one.

There are a variety of activities available, such as horseback riding along the river or through the farm. Visitors can also tour a local village to experience what they eat, how they cook, and listen to stories of their lifestyle.
