We started our vacation in Maun and stayed one night. Many of Staff personnel was not really professional and friendly. Rooms was OK and breakfast as well. We tried dinner buffet which was reasonable.

The room was dark even withcurtains opened and that makes using the dressing mirror in effective! The restaurant is great with a variety of foods and the workers are very alert and very useful when asked for help
