Private camping

A secret camp spot among the mopane trees

Mankwe campsite is designed for self-driving campers. You will enjoy the exclusive location of the Mankwe campsites which overlook the bush and mopane forest. Each of the campsites is totally secluded, to allow guests a sense of privacy and exclusivity. Campsites are not fenced and wildlife, including big game like lion, elephant and buffalo, roam freely in the area.
