Okavango River Lodge

Campground, chalet in Maun

This down-to-earth spot off Shorobe Rd has a lovely setting on the riverbank. The owners are friendly and unpretentious, and pride themselves on giving travellers useful (and independent) information on trips through the delta. Between this spot and the Old Bridge Backpackers, you’ll find most of Maun’s tourist and expat-oriented nightlife.

On that note, we’ve got to give the owners credit for the excellent name of their boat: Sir Rosis of the River.
