Ten of us stayed at Discovery for a night prior to starting our safari. Two of us had done this 2 years ago and found it took the worry out of - will our flight from Joburg arrive on time for the transfer to the Delta? The managers helped us with luggage transfer from the airport and welcomed us warmly....

A group of us rented three rooms at the end of our two weeks' trip of camping in Moremi Game Reserve. The rooms are basic but they do have a sense of flair. The breakfast wAs ok, nothing to write home about. The best part was talking with the nice young Dutch couple, the owners, who took a risk and...

Immediately driving into Maun, we loved the place. We stopped at the tourist office and they could not have been more friendly. Unfortunately, we were not so buoyed up on arriving at the Discovery B&B, especially after reading so many glowing reports on TripAdvisor! The room was very small, with precious little space to put clothes. The bathroom, such as...

We stayed at Discovery B&B before and after our trip in the Okavango. It is located a few km out of Maun but you can arrange with the hosts to be picked up. We loved our accommodation, a rondavel which was tastefully decorated and had a beautiful hand basin inside. It was fun having a shower outside but may not...

If you are looking for a place to stop over with no fanfare, restaurant, bar facilities or fuss, but a safe, value for money, peaceful forest type environment, with very comfortable rooms, superb ablutions, and very warm & friendly service, then look no further, this is the place for you. We stayed there for two nights during August 2014 and...

Rene and Marie are absolutely fantastic hosts. We always stay here when we're in Maun, which is a relief after years of looking for decent places in town. We were so thankful when they opened up. There are various kinds of rooms at Discovery, including rondavels, and all are nicely maintained, clean, quiet, and comfortable. If you request dinner, what...

A huge recommendation for Discovery. Beautiful, thoughtfully and creatively designed individual rooms in thatched huts. All mod cons (no internet though - but available close by), great showers, some outside the hut, firm beds and delightful washbasins. Very friendly owner, Maria from Holland, usually full so book ahead. Wonderful.

We stayed here about a month ago, after an amazing BushWays Safari, and prior to leaving the next day for Madagascar. We wish we would have had more time there. It was peaceful, beautiful and relaxing. The breakfast was good and the owners were so accomodating. They responded promptly to all my emails and let us watch the "World cup...

We enjoyed our stay at Discovery and would recommend it to those staying in Maun. We stayed in one the en suite rondavels. The rondavels have character and are clean, and we felt safe with our car at night since there is a night guard. The owners are very nice and helpful in booking tours. I do recommend having a...

It is amazing what can be fitted into an area without making one feel couped up, even when the place is fully booked. The lovely owners have created a unique B&B. They are welcoming and friendly. Facilities are of rustic-style but they are homely and well equipped. Being a long way out of town means shopping and eating are not...
