Top ChoiceLodging in MaunOld Bridge Backpackers
One of the great boltholes on Southern African overland trails, ‘the Bridge’ has a great bar-at-the-end-of-the-world kind of vibe. Accommodation ranges from dome tents by the riverbank to well-appointed campsites and some more private tents. Here, bush pilots and backpackers chat each other up, families take a break from the rigours of life on the African road, and a semiregular cast of drunks keeps the bar propped up. A good range of mokoro trips and the like is on offer. In short, this is a place that understands travel and doesn’t make you pay over the odds for it.
