Spacious tented accommodation maintained by extremely friendly and caring staff. There is no mains electricity, no Wi-Fi, no television, and minimal mobile connection – this is an ideal place to unwind and relax. You are guaranteed to be spoilt with all the attention and before you can finish your cocktail, the next is ready and waiting. The solar charge can... More

A very different experience and they are excellent at what they do. These are 'proper' tents and the theme is of a mobile safari in the days of the 'great white hunter', who was well represented pictorially as the owning (and operating) family have a strong legacy which more recently focuses on conservation and sustainability. 'The 'bucket shower' system was... More

Excellent place to stay on the bluff, overlooking the river. We watched and later heard elephants filling themselves with water and swimming and playing as the sun set behind them. Excellent food and homey feel that helped me settle right into Botswana. Tents are spacious and outdoor shower overlooking the hippo pool a beautiful experience. Also a fairly close drive... More

This the BEST place I have stayed in Botswana, just wonderful!!! The camp is located above the Boteti river, I could see plenty of elephants and Hippos from my safari tent. The safari tent was luxerious, with a good bathroom (outside, approx. 10 meters away from tent). Small swimming pools facing the river and the flats of the National park.... More

My partner and I stayed at Meno a Kweno Camp while on a self drive safari in Botswana. What a beautiful place. Meno A Kwena tented camp is a bit like a 1950’s film set with fantastic old furniture in the communal lounge area and a lovely long table in the dining area with canvas camp chairs. There are only...

This is a beautiful camp to which clearly a lot of effort has gone into, but having been in three other camps around Botswana we all (6) felt uneasy in this camp. It is very colonially styled, which in itself would have been okay as it was meant to be very indulgent and luxurious (big stained furniture, excessive decorations, framed... More

We stayed for two nights in August 2014. The camp is small and quiet and all of the tents overlook the river. At one point I watched 24 elephants and 27 zebra drinking. The camp is very tastefully done with communal areas also overlooking the river. The hosts Toff and Kitty are very welcoming and our guide Sel who took... More

Besides the amazing five star tented accommodation and service, Meno is also situated in the most perfect position. Located on a cliff above the river overlooking the park, one is able to view game coming down to the river from the luxurious viewing area. Stunning views also to be had from your tent and even from your own outdoor shower.... More

We spent our first two nights in this wonderful camp which included one full day being driven through the park with the wonderfully informative guide Sel. Absolutely fantastic stay would have no hesitation in recommending this camp to anyone.

Meno A Kwena was the first camp we visited on our Botswana trip. The camp was quite unique and very comfortable. You had to ask for hot water for your shower, but this wasn't a hassle as we all had showers before sundowners (too cold to have one in the morning!!). The camp was very intimate, and it was great...
