Maun, Botswana

Once a dusty little frontier town where local people brought their cattle to trade, Maun is today Botswana’s tourism capital and the springboard for safaris into the Okavango Delta and Moremi Wildlife Reserve. The town is now home to over 30 000 people who live in an assorted mix of traditional huts and modern buildings. It has shopping malls, restaurants, banks, a few hotels and some happening bars.

Tours to Maun 

Flights into the Okavango Delta can be organised from Maun Airport, and there’re several companies offering a one-hour sightseeing flip by six-seater plane. The town itself is known for local tribesmen bringing their cattle into town for sale, the occasional indigenous red lechwe grazing alongside the goats, and donkeys along the riverbanks.
