10 km out of Maun "the gateway to the Okavango", overlooking a hippo pool is “The old Bridge" backpackers. 

  This is a place created with the knowledge and understanding that comes from years of experience in the backpackers trade (we are co-creators of "Jungle junction" and "The swamp thing").. 

  "The Bridge" provides a comfortable base from which you can enjoy the varied amazing activities that this region has to offer.

  We have a campsite for travellers with their own tents, a few of which are drive in sites. There is one site for larger groups. We have an 8 bed dorm and tents made up as either doubles or twins. Our 5 riverside tents have en-suite facilities.

  Our kitchen opens at 7 in the morning and closes at 8:30 at night and serves good value meals for all tastes. For those who prefer to self-cater there is a convenient and fully equipped kitchen.

  We have a popular and sometimes festive bar set between old, weathered lead-wood logs. Evenings are dimly lit with good music floating through the air.  You will always find a fire on a cold winters night and a cosy TV lounge that may be used on request.

  Situated between the main building and the campsites you find open air, hot showers and flush toilets built entirely out of natural materials. They are always kept spotlessly clean.

  Our friendly staff, who we consider to be our biggest asset, will ensure that you have nothing but fond memories to take home with you.

  We run a variety of activities that one can do in Maun, and run Safaris to all the Wildlife Parks in the area. We are also happy to give good advice to those of you with your own transport.
