Maun in detail

Getting Around

Car & Motorcycle

Renting a car in Maun can be expensive (expect to pay around P600 per day for a small vehicle for getting around town). If you do arrive without a reservation, there are a number of car-rental agencies opposite the airport on Mathiba I St.

McKenzie is a Maun-based, family-run 4WD rental outfit with a small fleet of cars. Other companies use McKenzie mechanics, so your car is likely to be in good nick. It can also make lodge and campsite bookings on your behalf, and it's also a good option if you need a sat phone, even if you're not renting a vehicle with the company.

Local Transport

Combis marked ‘Maun Route 1’ or ‘Sedie Route 1’ travel every few minutes during daylight hours between the station in town and a stop near Crocodile Camp in Matlapaneng. The standard fare for all local trips is P10.

Taxis also ply the main road and are the only form of transport in the evening. They also hang around a stand along Pulane St in the town centre. A typical fare from central Maun to Matlapaneng is about P20/60 in a shared/private taxi. To prebook a taxi, ask your hotel or campsite for a recommendation.
