Maun is the main transit point used by people before embarking for the Okavango Delta to start a safari. Lying on the southern fringes of the delta, it is the country's tourism capital and is a typical dusty frontier town. Maun is the seat of power of the Batawana people, and the little town is mostly made up of safari companies, modern shopping centres, hotels and guesthouses.

Maun Airport is on the north side of the town, and serves as the main gateway to the delta, as well as offering daily flights to destinations in Namibia and South Africa. Upon arriving in Maun, you are transferred to your lodge on the banks of the Thamalakane River, around 19 kilometres away. The following day you fly from Maun to an airstrip in the Moremi Game Reserve, in a light aircraft.
