Location information for Maun Airport

Maun International Airport may be relatively tiny, but this northern Botswana airport ranks among Southern Africa’s busiest, as it is the gateway to several of Botswana’s most breathtaking safaris. Car hire in Maun Airport is the best way to travel the three miles from the airport to the town centre. Flights land or take off here about once every three minutes during the peak tourist season.

Maun Airport facilities

Direct flights this airport offers include daily South African Airways flights to Johannesburg and Air Namibia flights to Windhoek. Air Botswana operates non-stop flights to Kasane, Gaborone and Johannesburg. This two-floor building includes a bureau de change on its ground floor and a Botswana Tourism Board information kiosk which can help passengers to compare car hire.

Maun Airport excursions

Although many visitors head directly to the Okavango Delta, they can see exotic wildlife and magnificent scenery far closer to town at the Sitatunga Campsite crocodile farm or the Maun Game Reserve. Several safari companies based near the airport offer hour-long aerial Okavango Delta tours. The highlight of this part of the country is self-drive safaris, however.

Best time to visit

Maun’s dry winter season, May to October, is the most ideal time to visit. Although summer days are cloudless and warm, with hardly any rainfall, nights can be much colder. The weather is even hotter between November and April, but inaccessible roads cause many safari lodges to close. Most of Maun’s rare rains fall from December to February. Visitors should wear sunglasses as protection against Maun’s blinding sun and white dust.

Car rental in Maun Airport

Maun’s main motorway is the A3 to Francistown. A roundabout near Riley’s Hotel leads drivers to the Tesheko Tsheko road to the market, the Sekgoma Road to Maun Education Park and the Sir Seretse Khama Road to several popular safari camps and the airport. Drivers must never leave valuables in unattended vehicles and should use four-wheel drives in the Okavango Delta.
