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.
