Really good stay before, or after, a safari, located a couple of km outside Maun (good signs and easy to find) - clean & very neat - well maintained huts. Small pool for relaxing, good breakfast. Just remember that you have to go outside (a couple of km) for dinner, but the suggested Okovango River Lodge was very nice. Would...

The hotel is located approximately 5km outside of Maun town centre. The rooms are charming “hut style”, with outdoor showers. Breakfast was good, and the host gave good restaurant recommendations for in town.

My wife and I and our 9&11 year old children had a fantastic stay stay at Discovery. Staff was so helpful and friendly. For example we arrived late and the owner even made our youngest a grilled cheese because he was hungry. And they stored our gear for 5 days while we were in the bush. They just made everything...

Well situated in Maun, René and Marije are great hosts. The huts are in African style and the outdoor shower is great. We enjoyed being here, we only had 1 night in here, but recommend everybody to be here at least two nights. Unfortunately we had no time to fly over the okavango delta.

Designed as an “African” experience and quite rustic and rural. About 20 minutes out of Maun – in a very quiet setting. There were 9 rondavels with thatched roofs arranged round a central area – all on sand. Our rondavel was number 7 – basic but very nice - en suite toilet and shower; double bed with mosquito nets; limited...
