Other attractions not far from the centre of the city or in the city itself include the crocodile farm and ostrich farm respectively which give international visitors a chance to learn about the area and get an up close and personal experience with these two iconic African animals. The bottom line is that 4x4 hire Maun is a gateway to the rest of Botswana's 4x4 adventures

Getting around

There are so many great places close to Maun that you will want to see and explore them all. Hiring a 4x4 in Maun is really the only option when you want to travel outside the city.  This also gives one the option of going off road and if you have a tent, it’s also broadens your scope and camping is something that can be introduced into your itinerary. 

Length of stay

Since Maun is widely considered to be a frontier town 1 week should be enough time to experience it, since most of your exploring will be in other destinations close by most notably the Okavango Delta, which is widely considered to be a natural wonder of the world. That said it certainly is an up and coming place and with the rise in tourism also has come a rise in things to do and places to stay at, you may just want to extend your stay based on this.

What to pack

Make sure you don’t forget any of the necessary paperwork as some of the lodges you will be visiting won’t be close to urban areas, make spare copies of your documents. Some sort of waterproof clothing especially for The Okavango Delta region. Unfortunately Botswana is a malaria zone so malaria medication and a strong repellent are advisable. If game drives is one of your main focuses then make sure you pack neutral clothing that won’t expose you to animals. Make sure you pack a few warm items as well as items for the warm weather as conditions will vary especially if you are going on early morning or night time safaris. Other worthwhile items on any safari include a camera, binoculars and plenty of spare batteries and memory cards. If you hire a camper or 4x4 in Botswana with us you woul generally have the option of going for an equipped vehicle. These 4x4's have pretty much everything you might need for the 4x4 Botswana adventure you've been looking for.
