We stayed three nights at this beautiful, very private and old fashioned Safari Camp. The tents are new, bigger and very comfortable and power is no provided. A very caring owner-family and very nice staff. The location is very unique close to the river, with a lot of game close to the camp at the river.

It's quite a long (90-120 minute) transfer by road from Maun. The camp itself is fine, well-appointed but not luxurious. External toilets & showers are now replaced by en-suite facilities, and there are in-room charging facilities. The food is OK and freshly-cooked, but nothing special. Home-made breads & baking was very good. The main areas are OK, but not very...

Meno a Kwena is situated next to a river where the zebras and elephants come down for water in the afternoon and then the sundowners at the river are amazing. The lodge is one hour drive to get to the game drive in Makgadikgadi National park, which is a bit far at least if you are travelling with children. But...

We stayed three nights in Meno a Kwena, and we loved it. We were picked up from Maun airport, and then only 1.5 hour road transfer to the camp.

Staying at Meno was an amazing experience. The setting, overlooking the river, with hundreds of zebra gathered on the edge, was stunning.

Go there. Meno a Kwena Camp is ideally sited within close proximity of the Makgadikgadi Pans Nat'l Park which was rich with wildlife (elephant, zebra, ostrich, wildebeest, hippo, kudu, giraffe, jackal) during a recent July stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Resting atop ancient and awe inspiring cliffs, with the serene Boteti River flowing in front of your tent and zebra, kudu and elephant interacting beyond, Meno a Kwena provides a haven for those after a more authentic safari experience. The bushman walk offered here is also a highlight of many visits for guests of all ages. This fully inclusive camp offers nine fully serviced, en suite Meru tents that hark to halcyon days on safari. A traditional fenced boma partly envelops each of the tents, whilst outside, a bucket shower with a view complete the picture. Away from the rooms there are multiple spots for guests to enjoy alone or spend time with their fellow travellers, be it in the floating photographic hide, in the relaxed lounge area overlooking the river, or at the bar. For those keen to brush up on their knowledge before the next drive there's a library and dining area, for a drop of sun meanwhile the pool area is undeniably tempting. Meno a Kwena is the area's only camp accessible by road, with a two hour transfer to Maun. Transfers are complimentary both to and from Maun airport. ... more   less
