Gweta (GPS: GWETA) is a small, old village about 2km south of the road between Nata and Maun; about 205km from Maun and 100km from Nata. Now it feels quite run-down, but it remains conveniently situated for exploring Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans. There's a restcamp here, a couple of basic foodstores (including the Maono Restaurant) and even a vehicle workshop for minor repairs. There is often, but not always, fuel available here.
Gweta is very clearly signposted south of the main road, in an area of mostly stunted mopane woodlands with the odd small clay pan. Turning off you'll first find a post office on your left, then the fuel station on your right (signposted with little pump signs) and finally the restcamp. Planet Baobab is about 5km east of town, but worth seeking out. If you're arriving by bus, ask them to stop on the road beside the turn-off to Planet Baobab.
Getting there and away
If you're not driving yourself then there are very regular bus services between Maun and Francistown. They usually turn into town and stop in the centre, near the Maono Restaurant. Maun is then about three hours away and costs P20; Francistown is about 4 hours away, costing P25.
