Day trips?

We will be staying in Maun in a house for two weeks. Is it reasonable to plan day trips or activities, such as drive safaris or river trips, leaving in the morning and returning by dark? We will have a car but would prefer going with a guide or group. Almost everything I have seen online looks like several nights of travel and camping. If yes, any suggestions to help with finding these activities? Thanks in advance.

We had 3 days in Maun during our 32 day self drive trip Namibia/Botswana last September . You can easily arrange day trips for guided game safaris into Moremi Game Reserve, mokoro & day boat trips from Maun to Chiefs Island (Delta) or Moremi GR.

We drove to Okavango River lodge out of town along the Shorobe Rd & just rolled in and asked if they could arrange an afternoon local river trip. One of the staff made a phone call and after we waited there for 30 minutes a local chap arrived to take us out on his boat which was front of the lodge. Easy as. See their day trips https://www.okavango-river-lodge.com/.

Note some of their day trips require a days advance notice in order to arrange fuel/park fees/food. Also Audi Safaris offer day trips http://www.audisafaris.com/. I believe there are others. Try Google - "Day trips from Maun'' .

I would recommend a visit to Chiefs Island, we did a walking tour on the island from our nearby inner Delta fly in lodge, the area is game rich and will give you a sense of the inner Delta.

Maun is a great base for day trips to moremi np or the delta. We took a fantastic day safari to Moremi saw leopard, cheetahs and lions with a great guide, for a very cheap price. Also booked a mokoro day trip into the okavango delta, which was top class including walking on an island surrounded by hippo, elephants and giraffe. You can read my reviews of these by clicking my profile, look for one day safari report and Moreno day visit. We were in maun in July.
