A charming blend of old and new
Maun has an eclectic charm that comes from its enticing mix of old and new. It is a town where traditional rondavels and dwellings are interspersed with more modern buildings and streets. Once a wild frontier town, Maun has grown rapidly into Botswana’s tourist capital and provides easy access to the Okavango as well as the alluring Makgadikgadi Pans thanks to the Maun International Airport. Established in 1915 as a capital for the Tswana – Tawana People, the city gets its’ name from the San word “muang”; which means “the place of short reeds”. This charming village is the ideal destination from which to explore Botswana’s incredible wildlife and National Parks.
