Helicopter Horizons are based in Maun, the gateway to Botswana’s Okavango Delta. As the only helicopter charter company in the region, they are in a unique position to provide travellers with unforgettable scenic flights, excursions and private transfers that only a helicopter can afford.
A vehicle is a necessity for getting around, but taxis can be hailed from the street if you do not have one. If you want to pre-book a taxi for a specific reason, you will need to phone to order one in advance.
Minibuses also drive up and down the main road all day, costing very little (about P10) and are very easily accessible!
Does the town have an airport?
Yes! The airport in Maun is located on the north side of town and is easily accessible by taxis and shuttle buses. This airport is well connected, with scheduled Air Botswana flights from Gaborone, Johannesburg, and Kasane. Maun airport may be a small airport, but it is one of the busiest in Southern Africa when considering the number of arrivals and departures per hour. Much of the air traffic is associated with ferrying travellers to the many lodges in the area.
