Exclusive self catering accommodation in Maun

I had the good fortune a few years agao to meet two of Botswana's most famous residents - Tim and June Liversedge, wildlife photographers and film makers extraordinaire. June mentioned that she was renovating a cluster of rondavels on their rambling old Maun property. Planning a short, fly-in trip into the Okavango Delta recently we were determined to get into the delta camp as early as possible. This meant an overnight stop in Maun so we could take the first charter flight out to camp next morning. I remembered June's rondavels.

'The Kraal' is a cluster of 4 thatched rondavels on a private section of the Liversedge property, approximately 7 kilometers from Maun airport and bordering the Tamalekane River. Furnished with impeccable taste and offering unexpected comfort, three of the rondavels are en-suite bedrooms while the fourth is a kitchen, equipped as well as my own with a washing machine and tumble dryer to boot. We watched the sun set on the river from The Kraal's timber deck, before our taxi arrived to drive us to supper at Old Bridge.

We'd opted for the add-on continental breakfast and woke to a cacophony of birds and the smell of fresh coffee from our little kitchen. Housekeeper Charlotte had laid a table on the patio overlooking the river with fresh fruit and yoghurt, soft boiled eggs, hot toast and preserves.

I can't imagine 'The Kraal' will be Maun's best kept secret for long, but it will remain on our itinerary for all future trips through Maun.

Stayed here in November and what a treat! Beautiful views over the river on a private deck and lovely rooms.

Here is the link to the website that June has recently created:

We stayed there in Sept. Highly recommend but 1 warning mosquitoes at dusk on the deck gazebo are vicious.
