Maun

Maun is a pleasant if rather featureless little town which acts as the major hub for safaris into the Delta or Kalahari.

Maun is growing fast and currently extending its airport runway, which will allow travelers to come here more easily. In 2009 the Okavango Delta experienced one of the highest annual floods since decades, bringing a lot of water into the region. 2010 looks just as promising.

Since almost all decent safaris in this region is now done by air, the majority of travelers pass through Maun airport without stopping to even take a look around, never mind stay the night.

There is therefore very little in the way of decent accommodation here.
