AT A GLANCE
Mankwe Explorer Camp is located on the eastern edge of the Okavango Delta, a renowned World Heritage Site in Botswana. Coming from South Gate, drive back towards the Buffalo gate - if you reach buffalo gate you have gone too far. Before you reach buffalo gate you turn left and follow the main road for 25km to Sankuyo village. Mankwe is signposted on the left-hand side of the road, 5.5 km out of Sankuyo.
This is a prestigious territory in the wild wonderland of Botswana, where the lack of fences allows for free-roaming wildlife, resident lions, an abundance of elephants, and incomprehensible room to explore.
