Located about halfway between the arid Central Kalahari Game Reserve and the watery Okavango Delta, Meno a Kwena offers a diverse range of safari experiences. The camp boasts a scenic and secluded position perched on a high clifftop with sweeping views over the Boteti River and the Makgadikgadi National Park. Not only does the camp offer beautiful vistas, but the river is often frequented by herds of elephant and zebra.
Meaning “teeth of the crocodile”, this comfortable tented camp offers 10 ensuite guest tents, including two family tents, that all feature an outdoor patio area with canvas deck chairs that overlook the river. The comfortable, rustic tents are styled with locally woven fabrics and have ensuite bathrooms with dual basins and a safari-style shower. The two family tents both have inter-leading rooms.
The main area features an open-air dining room, lounge and bar as well as a stunning swimming pool that overlooks the Boteti River. The lounge and dining tents are decorated with old-world artefacts, books and trinkets and even features a sculpted crocodile. Guests can relax in camp during the day and observe the rivers wild visitors from plenty of vantage points, including the pool, their private patio or at eye-level from the floating game-viewing hide.
Activities at Meno a Kwena include venturing out into the Makgadikgadi National Park on 4WD game drives with a bush picnic, walking with the ancient Bushmen and gaining a fascinating insight into their way of life and the desert landscape or cruising along the Boteti River by boat (depending on water levels). From January until March, the zebra migration is regularly observed passing the front of this camp. With little light pollution, guests can also enjoy magical stargazing opportunities.
