Maun is the gateway to the famous Okavango Delta. Everyone asks how there can be a delta in the middle of the Kalahari desert. Good question. The sea that the river flowed into has gone missing, but does reappear from time to time in what is now called the Pans. Basically the river flowing down from Angola seeps and eventually disappears into the Okavango, creating something unique; a huge oasis that supports a varied and populous wildlife.

The Botswana government have long realised the value of this and protect it and exploit it in equal measure. As an African destination it is outstanding, and every imaginable type of safari is catered for, usually expensively. Tied as we were to airport proximity, we stayed at a very pleasant and reasonable lodge a short drive from Maun, on a stretch of river with good food and service called the Thamalakane River Lodge.
