Maun: Place of Wonders – JII Travels

Last month I visited my mom in Maun. Maun is a lovely town built on the banks of the Letlhakane river. Many people consider Maun to be a tourist stop over before entering their final destination – the Delta. I however consider Maun as my home.

It’s where my parents met and married, it’s were I learnt to ride a tricycle, I learnt to fish and I probably learnt how to manipulate a camera too. Maun has a special place in my soul and whenever I am there – hadn’t been there in almost 11 years, I feel at complete peace with the energies of the universe. Yes, I am going to get a little spiritual with you, only because that is the best way to describe my experiences in Maun – spiritual.

In the month that I visited with my mom I adopted two dogs from MAWS (Maun Animal Welfare Society), waded through crocodile infested waters to get the perfect snaps of water lilies, ate at some of the finest eateries that Botswana has to offer, collaborated with Botswanas’ premier blogger Nde Uyapo as well as reminisce about the days I was a child with people who I haven’t seen in just over a decade. Maun was so good for my soul.

While I was there, I managed to curate a stunning photo album of pictures that I think do Maun wonderful justice. This album was entirely captured by the IPhone 8 Plus. This is mobile photography at its best. Checkout my favorite photos from my trip below.

Thank you for reading my blog. If you’re planning a trip to Maun and are looking for accomodation with stellar cuisine you definitely need to checkout Island Safari Lodge at http://www.africansecrets.net/ and Cresta Maun Hotel at http://www.crestahotels.com/ . For truly unique dining opportunities you simply must visit the Tshilli Farmstall and Coffee Bar, Marc’s Eatery and Tanduri.
