Maun

Maun is a rural town on the Thamalakane River in northern Botswana where it is not unusual to see local tribesman walking their cattle, donkeys and goats through the town centre.
It is Botswana’s primary tourist hub as the gateway to the Okavango Delta. Maun has good accommodation options, and the ambience is usually fun as the town gets a good mix of bush pilots, tourists, campers, volunteers, and luxury-safari-enthusiasts. Most travellers spend their time in the camps and lodges within the Okavango Delta, only using Maun as a stopover for a day or two.
