Follow in the footsteps of early explorers! Maun has been the start of expeditions into Botswana’s wildlife areas since the turn of the century, and is the gateway to the Okavango Delta. Many guests stay only a day before setting off on safari. Once a village, Maun has recently grown into a bustling little town with shops and hotels. Watch as herdsmen wander along the dusty curbside driving their cattle to the marketplace, or see the traditional houses dotted along the wide banks of the Thamalakane River where red lechwe graze next to local donkeys and goats.
