Safari in Maun

Maun is the administrative centre of Ngamiland district and lies on the Southern fringes of the Okavango Delta in Botswana. It is the 5th largest town in Botswana and also known as the “Tourism Capital”. The Ngamiland District offers a fascinating variety of ethnic groups who knows the Okavango intimately. You can see the Baherero women who originated from Namibia with their brightly coloured victorian style dresses on the roads or outside their traditional rondavels. Many tourists see the exploring of traditional villages as a highlight of their tour.

Maun has grown dramatically in the 1980’s because of tourism and has modern malls, banks, shops, hotels and guesthouses. You can buy any food item from chocolates to champagne and all commonplace necessities in between at any of the supermarkets. Maun is also the headquarters of numerous Botswana safari and air-charter operations, running trips and safaris into the Okavango Delta. Visitors explore Tsodilo Hills and the Makgadikgadi pans from Maun the gateway.
