MAUN

INTRODUCTION

The gateway to the Okavango Dela, and having offices of many air-charters and safari operators, it has grown from a small rural town to a busy, tourist area but still retains its rural African atmosphere. You may spot the odd tribesman selling his cattle or game grazing along the banks of the Thamalakane River which the town borders on. You can enjoy a great shopping experience of great diversity as there are modern shops as well as local people selling their wares along the streets. The perfect place to make last minute arrangements and stock up on supplies you might need.
