Maun has been the starting point of expeditions into Botswana's wildlife areas since the turn of the century, and it is now the safari capital of the country and the gateway to the Okavango Delta.

It's a little town, dotted with modern shops and offices, while its suburbs are a mix of a few traditionally built, thatched rondavels and an increasing number of more modern, tin-roofed brick houses. Look carefully amongst the older ones these and you'll find quite a lot which incorporate old tin cans from drinks into their mud walls.

Maun is well connected with Johannesburg by scheduled flights and has a very large, tar runway - capable of taking the largest of jets - and a smart, new airport building beside it.
