Kalahari to Maun, Botswana
Rising early we leave for Maun and spend the night here. In the afternoon we make our way to the gateway to the Okavango Delta. When we reach the city, we begin preparations for our following two night excursion into the Delta. An optional scenic flight over the Okavango Delta is available for those wanting to participate in activities in the afternoon.
The fifth biggest town in Botswana, Maun is renowned as the tourism capital and gateway into the Okavango Delta. It is a diverse contrast of modern structures and traditional huts. Presently home to over some 30,000 people, the town was established in 1915 as the tribal capital of the Batawana people. Maun initially serviced the local cattle ranching and hunting industries and gained a reputation as a ‘wild west’ town. Maun grew rapidly with the swift development of the tourism industry and the completion of the tar road leading from Nata.
