Sipping a Gin and Tonic, looking down across the river to watch Zebra flock in for an evening drink. This place is the ultimate blend of camping in the great outdoors, while being pampered by all of the things you love. Private outdoor rain showers, four post beds, a spa pool overlooking the wildlife : this is how safari was... More

LOVED this camp. We spent only 2 nights here, on our first safari, if we did it again we'd do 3 nights. It was our last camp and it would have been so nice to spend a whole day just staying in the camp relaxing. Next time! A simple camp with great staff and management. The tents have been upgraded...

Located on the cliffs above the Boteti River you have a panoramic view of animal and bird life from your luxury tents, newly re-built and refurbished and very comfortable. Recommend No 2 which has uninterrupted view of the river. Kobus, Dan and the team are excellent hosts and in this friendly relaxed place you soon swopping stories with guests from... More

I spent three nights in this fantastic camp. The staff were excellent, knowledgeable and warm. The tents are very comfortable and the communal areas are nicely designed and laid out. I had a great time and saw many animals during the game drives and at the camp itself. Spent hours at the camp fire with the talking with the staff... More

If you have been reading previous reviews here, it's important that you know that Meno a Kwena has now upgraded all their tents and they are large, airy and have ensuite bathroom and showers. The beds are super comfy, their is a power charging bar that takes USB cords and plugs (make sure you have an adapter). Toiletries such as... More

We stayed two nights at Meno A Kwena and had a fantastic time there. The road transfer from Maun to Meno A Kwena takes approx. 1.5 hours. Meno has 8 tents – all renovated. The tents are very comfortable with an inside bathroom with running water. There is also the opportunity to use an outside bucket shower. The view from... More

Arriving at Meno a Kwena was a real surprise. The lodge is beautiful and very convivial with the fire place being the center of the space. As the lodge oversees the river the view is really breathtaking, especially as when we arrived there were probably over 100 zebras drinking in the river. The rooms are brand new and very nicely...

We stayed here for 4 days at the start of our trip to the Delta. It was a fabulous place to recover from our long flight travel. The camp is excellent - the tents are great, spacious and clean with lots of hot water for in-suite showers; the communal living area is relaxed and lovely; and the view over the... More

My wife and I spent a couple of nights here on our safari through Botswana. It was the last place we stayed, out of five camps and lodges. We flew to Maun and were promptly picked up at the airport. It was a long drive to the camp, over an hour. The camp was very welcoming with a number of... More

Stayed two nights. Lovely tents just a bit small. You have a tent and then a separate shower and toilet area. My only issue is that at 3 am you just don't want to put on your shoes to go outside. But it was fine. I loved the outside showers. One bucket is just enough to make you feel amazing.... More

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
