EEASA 2017

MAUN LODGE

YOUR GATEWAY TO THE OKAVANGO DELTA, BOTSWANA

The Botswana EEASA LOC is looking forward towards welcoming the EEASA Family in Maun from September 17 2017 (arrival) up to September 22 2017 (departure).

Maun is one of the biggest and ancient towns in Botswana, which lies on the banks of Thamalakane River. It’s the jumping-off point for the vast inland Okavango Delta, which becomes a lush wildlife habitat during the seasonal floods.

Maun is the capital city of the Batawana Tribe of Botswana and a gateway to the magnificent ‘Okavangodelta’ (the 2010 WTTC & The 2016 Safari Awards  Winner). Maun is known of its many safari camps and the Moremi Game Reserve which is a home to hippos, lions and rhinos. In the town, the Nhabe Museum features local art, plus history and culture exhibits about the surrounding Ngamiland district.
