Drinking & Nightlife

Most lodges have their own bar, most of which are fairly sedate. If you’re after a more overland and expat scene, try the Old Bridge Backpackers or Okavango River Lodge. Of the restaurants, Sports Bar has the best and liveliest bar. For a more African vibe, there are, of course, numerous shebeen (illegal drinking establishments) serving home-brewed sorghum beer to a local crowd; the staff at your hotel or lodge can point you in the right direction for this sort of off-licence fun.
