Royal Tree lodge
, previously known as Motentsela Tree Lodge
, is located in the town of Maun
in northern Botswana
Situated on a small private game reserve around 5km to the south of the town, this place is very much in the style of a safari lodge, it has thatched central areas, opening out onto nice terraces and a pool area.
Guest accommodation is in seven tented rooms with private bathrooms.
There are several marked walking trails around the reserve and, since there are no large predators, it is possible to walk around amongst the giraffes and zebras.
It is accessed by road, beings about 15 minutes south from Maun airport.
Royal Tree lodge is a well run and reasonably high quality establishment, certainly one of the highest quality facilities in the area. The lodge is intended to complement the high quality camps out in the Okavango, but in our experience guests at that level rarely need or want to overnight in Maun.
On the rare occasion that we do need to include accommodation in this area we usually look to the much lower priced Thamalakane River Lodge
, but we are more than happy to include this lodge.
