Meno A Kwena, meaning “teeth of the crocodile”, borders Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, in close proximity to Nxai Pan National Park. The camp is situated on tribal land and has been built on a cliff edge overlooking the Boteti River. This authentic safari camp is styled in the tradition of an East African tented camp. Meno A Kwena offers ten safari tents. The tents are simple yet stylishly furnished with comfortable bedding, a fan as well as gauze sliding doors and windows. Each tent has an en suite bathroom with a shower and a flush toilet. Each tent features a private sitting area with views over the Boteti River. The main lodge has a dining area, bar and lounge with a small library and features many interesting artefacts and photographs. Two covered seating areas at the edge of the escarpment provide guests with breathtaking views over the Boteti River.
The river attracts many zebra and wildebeest herds during the dry season (June to Oct) offering excellent game viewing from the comfort of the camp. There is a small plunge pool, as well as a floating game viewing hide offering a close yet safe view across the river into the national park.
Activities at Meno A Kwena include guided nature walks with Bushmen (San), game drives into the Makgadikgadi National Park and game viewing from the floating hide on the Boteti River. For stays of 3 nights or longer, full-day trips with a picnic lunch can be arranged to Makgadikgadi & Nxai Pan National Park. Camp will use discretion in deciding whether guests explore the Khumaga Area or Nxai Pan area depending on where game viewing is best. As a general guide, Khumaga is better during the dry season and Nxai Pan more likely to be explored during green season. Seasonal (July to October) overnight camping excursions to the salt pans are also available on request.
