Major Shake-Up for Botswana’s Okavango Delta!


Ethiopian Airlines, Africa's largest airline, is set to commence scheduled flights to Maun, Botswana, starting on 10 June, significantly enhancing access to the renowned Okavango Delta. The flights will operate three times weekly between Addis Ababa, Ndola, Zambia, and Maun, utilising Boeing 737-8MAX aircraft.

Maun serves as the primary gateway for visitors to the Okavango, a UNESCO World Heritage wetland wonder. Previously, access to the region was primarily through regional flights or charters. Ethiopian's new route offers simpler and more affordable access for international tourists.
