Mauin sanctuary.
Great place. Out of the hussle and bustle of Maun.

Good 6.0
Not have expectation on the staff
Had a really bad experience at first, as the staff was not at all helpful to advice us in booking activities due to the weather (rain), they were not solution oriented. They offered a super expensive activity. We were not happy and it almost turned into a drama, then finally they found solution we were happy with and apologize with a free bottle of wine. Food is not good at all. It's ok to stay there as the price is ok (for Okavango Delta) but look for a local agent for the activities.
