  • 10 km out of Central Maun, the gateway to the Okavango, overlooking the hippo pool is The Old Bridge Backpackers.

    Thamalakane riverThis venue is a “Backpackers” in the sense that it has been created with an understanding of people who choose to travel independently rather than prebooking package tours.

    “The Bridge” provides a comfortable base in Maun from which you can enjoy the varied amazing sites and activities that this region has to offer.

    We have a limited number of campsites for travelers with their own tents, a few of which are drive in sites. There is one site for larger groups. We have 10 furnished tents made up as either doubles or twins. Our 5 riverside tents have en-suite facilities. The 5 tents without en-suite facilities are set back from the riverside.

    An afternoon spent with, friendly, Thitaku learning how to weave baskets will not be easily forgotten.
    A 3 hour workshop costs P300.00 p.p.

    An overview of the islands and waterways of the Okavango gives you an insight into the shear size and beauty of our wetlands and the Wildlife they support. Flights cost P1200.00 per person for a 1 hour scenic flight.

    A Bird watching walk and Mokoro activity combination is available and conducted on the outskirts of Maun. This is a great activity if you have a spare afternoon or morning and costs only P400.00 p.p. (minimum 2 people) for 4 hours
    A one and a half hour sunset boat cruise down the Thamalakane river whilst viewing game in the maun wildlife sanctuary is a nice way to end your day. Sunset cruises cost P600.00 p.boat (max 6 people). It’s usually easy to find others to join.
