Around Maun


Self Drive from Maun

For those who are adventurous and wanting to explore the area with the freedom of their own vehicle there are many options of places to visit. With the development of Botswana’s roads it is possible to drive to large towns such as Shakawe, Kasane and Ghanzi without the need for a 4X4 vehicle. If you would like to visit and explore the National Parks and Game Reserves such as Moremi, Chobe, Central Kalahari and Makgadikgadi a 4X4 vehicle with a high clearance is needed to navigate your way through soft sand tracks and water crossings.

To Moremi: 2 ½ hours drive to South Gate, where you can ask for advice on which roads or circuits to take. Black pools circuit is a popular option.

Scenic Flights of the Okavango and Maun from Maun Airport

Scenic flights enable you to gain a true perspective of the vastness of the Okavango Delta, The Makgadikgadi Pans, Chobe National Park, Victoria Falls just to name a few. The best times for scenic flights are in the morning and late afternoon when weather conditions are calm. Alternatively you can take a helicopter for a trip of a lifetime.

Boat Safaris

Boating safaris are a great and easy way to travel into the delta if you can spare a day or few hours. Experience the river turning into the winding channels of the delta and see the changing environments along the way.

Cruises on the Thamalakane River

Sunset cruises are a wonderful way to meet a few people, watch the birdlife and see how people live and operate along the river while enjoying refreshments. While you are relaxing, you may see a Hammerkop flying overhead with their nesting material, a Fish Eagle catching a Barbel, Open-Billed Storks hunting snails and flocks of egrets flying just above the surface of the water on their way to find a roost for the night.

Horse riding along the Thamalakane River

A lovely alternative to experiencing the river is by horse back.

Mokoro Trips

Taking a Mokoro trip will give you a unique experience to take home and give you insight into the lives of the traditional people of the Okavango.
