My Maun Experience back with 4th edition

The observation and general feel is that over the years the majority of Batswana tend to prioritize places such as Sun City & Cape Town (RSA) as well as Walvis Bay & Swakopmund (Namibia) as their Tourism holiday destinations of choice over local destinations such as Maun, Kasane, the Okavango Delta and Chobe more especially during the festive break.  

While a lot of people decry lack of entertainment as the cause and further, others simply want to stay around Gaborone to avoid missing out on the annual Back to Skul party, ‘My Maun Experience’ organisers are working around the clock enthuse people’s festive moods to the smell of a totally different breeze.  

My Maun Experience’ strategy is to woo visitors, especially the youth, to Maun through a series of events and to take advantage of coincidental complimentary events that are organized by other promoters. They organize tourism activities such as Boat Cruising, Horseback safaris, Camel Riding, game drives, Mokoro trips, helicopter rides and scenic flights for the visitors, once they are in Maun.  

The 3rd Annual ‘My Maun Experience Breakfast Run’ will also take place this year. This is a 12 km race which starts at 0700 hrs in the morning and as usual the prize giving will be held over breakfast at Maun Lodge. The participation of Jerry Motsau (RSA) and Nigel Amos in last year’s race sparked a lot of interest from their colleagues and training partners in South Africa. More international runners are expected to partake at this year’s event.

The 2nd Annual ‘My Maun Experience Mountain Bike Race’ will this year be 50 km and not 30 km like the last edition. The first edition of the race had only attracted Maun local riders due to late advertising. This was because a decision had been made to shelve the event due to lack of funds. It was only after sponsorship funds for prize winners were secured in December that all preparations were revived, leaving organisers with just two weeks to prepare and stage the race.

This year’s event will however be advertised well on time and more riders will also be attracted through word of mouth.

In January 2016 as a way of appreciation and welcoming the New Year the ‘Wine, Whiskey and Food Festival – THE SAFARI AFFAIR’ will be hosted.  This is a “Safari themed” day event, which will also be used as a farewell party for visitors where they will be given a taste of the best in wine and whiskey together with our local food (tswii, Fish, Game meat, Ndeba and some traditional music brew) music and culture.

The dress code theme of the day is safari wear and it will be supported by different uniforms of the Safari companies operating around Maun including air chatters, Hotels, mobile Safaris, Camps, Travel Agencies and Tour operators. The patrons of this event are; Hon Tawana Moremi, Hon Kosta Markus, Lawrence Lecha, Tops Ledimo and is brought to you by Dose Mosimanyane of DOC entertainment and Bissau Gaobakwe of 63 Entertainment.
