Royal Tree Lodge overview

Royal Tree Lodge is just 20 minutes from Maun, the gateway to the Okavango Delta. It’s in a private reserve and is on the banks of the Thamalakane River. This is a peaceful location and is a lovely place to stay at the start or end of your safari.

There are waymarked trails leading through the grounds for you to explore independently or with a guide from the lodge, watching out for kudu and giraffe as you go.

The main lodge is a thatched building with polished wooden floors, large leather sofas and a library of nature and history books. Relax here with a drink from the bar or wander out through the doors to the deck to enjoy the fresh air and maybe take swim in the pool. Lunch and dinner are usually served on the shaded deck, al fresco, with breakfast taken in the dining room. There’s a firepit, ideal for pre and post-dinner drinks in the company of fellow guests.

Tented rooms are built on wooden decks with verandas overlooking the forest. As well as the attractively furnished bedroom you’ll have an en-suite bathroom with a freestanding bathtub plus an outdoor shower. Air-conditioned honeymoon chalets are tucked away in secluded spots and feature indulgent sunken baths.  At night lamps light the walkways that link the rooms to the central lodge area.
