        We did everything by email. I tried to post a link to their site but TripAdvisor wouldn't let me. If you google old bridge backpackers Maun, it should come up for you

        It is called The Old Bridge Backpackers. It is in Maun, Botswana. I have absolutely no idea where Staybridge Lodge is, but it certainly isn't this one.
