Sleeping

Okavango River Lodge (§§ 686 3707;[email protected]; Matlapaneng; camping per person US$3, s/d chalet US$35/40; (P)) This down-to-earth spot has a lovely setting on the riverbank, and it's often quiet because it's not as popular as Audi Camp.

Sitatunga Camp ((§) 686 4539; groundhogsjahot mall.com; delta [email protected]; camping per person US$4; (P) ®) This camp enjoys a nice bush setting 14km south of Maun and boasts a serious party atmosphere.

Maun Rest Camp (§§ 686 3472; [email protected]; Shorobe Rd, Matlapaneng; camping per person US$4, basic pre-erected tents per person US$6, linen per person extra US$7; (P)) This no-frills rest camp is spotless, and boasts what justifiability may be 'the cleanest ablution blocks in Maun'.

Audi Camp (§ 686 0599; www.okavangocamp.com; Matlapaneng; camping per person US$4, s/d tents from US$20726; ® (U) The most-established budget accommodation in Maun is always packed with backpackers. It's by far the most sociable of the lodges, and a good choice if you're feeling a bit lonely, though it lacks the personality of some of the smaller lodges.

Crocodile Camp (l§) 6860265;www.crocodllecamp.com; Matlapaneng; camping per person US$5, s/d tents US$20/40, s/d chalet from US$40/60; ®) Arguably the most attractive lodge in Maun, the 'Croc Camp' occupies a superb spot right on the river and is usually packed with all sorts of interesting characters.

Back to the Bridge Backpackers (@ 686 2037; [email protected]; Hippo Pools, Old Matlapaneng Bridge, Matlapaneng; camping per person US$5, s/d tents from US$32/48; (P)) This new and friendly option occupies a leafy spot beside the historic Old Matlapaneng Bridge. The atmosphere is chilled out and the riverside setting is tranquil, so there's definitely a lot of potential here.

Island Safari Lodge (§§ 686 0300; [email protected]; Matlapaneng; camping per person US$5, s/d chalet US$55/60; ®) One of the original lodges in the city, Island Safari Lodge is starting to show its age, though the riverside setting is still relaxing and tranquil.

Sedia Hotel (§§ 686 0177; [email protected]; Shorobe Rd, Matlapaneng; camping per person US$5, s/d from US$75/90; ® (S) ®) This resort-like complex features an outdoor bar, a Continental-inspired restaurant and a huge swimming pool. You have the choice of a number of rooms as well as self-contained chalets, or you can simply pitch a tent and take advantage of all the hotel facilities.
