5 Best Restaurants in Botswana

The Duck

$ Fodor's choice

Maun’s newest eatery, ideally situated just outside the airport, serves up the best coffee in town together with fresh juices and a varied and original brunch and lunch menu that caters to all palates, ranging from salads and burgers to Asian specialties.

Dusty Donkey


Located just a short walk from the airport, this reliable, friendly café offers a variety of wraps, salads, sandwiches, and a handful of daily specials all washed down with great coffee, milkshakes, smoothies, or a glass of locally brewed craft beer. If you still have space, there's also a great selection of house-made cakes and pastries.

Hilary's Coffee Shop


If you've time for a cup of coffee and a quick snack between flights or before you set out on safari, leave the airport and turn right. You'll find this coffee shop behind the offices of Okavango Wilderness Safaris. Hilary has run this coffee shop for years, and everything you eat here is house-baked, including the best breakfast options in Maun. Grab a sandwich, a salad, or one of the daily specials and be sure to try her house-made whole-wheat bread.

The café at the Gothic-looking Motsana Center serves tasty sandwiches, American pancakes, lip-smacking milkshakes, and a handful of simple main courses. Wander around the curio shops while you wait for your food or make use of the free Wi-Fi. In winter, a projector and screen transform the stage into a cinema on Thursday night, when dinner is also served. There's also a small play area for children.



Serving up a wide range of classic curries and tandoori dishes as well as some Chinese staples, this is the most reliable of Maun's selection of Indian restaurants. The alfresco ambience---a thatched roof provides cover for inclement weather---is relaxed and the service is consistently good.
