Meno A Kwena
Meno A Kwena Tented Camp is set on the banks of the Boteti River and offers guests a wonderful traditional safari experience. Owner run and managed, the camp is suited to guests seeking a personal touch.
Meno A Kwena Tented Camp Introduction
Meno A Kwena is the name given to a deep stretch of the Boteti River once populated by hippos and crocodiles in a garden of water lilies. Translated from Setswana, Meno A Kwena means Tooth of the Crocodile. This camp offers a traditionally classic tented camp experience where each tent is ideally situated to take in the breathtaking view over the dry riverbed. The view from anywhere in the camp high up on white calcrete and silcrete cliffs forms the centre of the Meno A Kwena experience. Overlooking the dried up riverbed of the Boteti, which stopped flowing many years ago, a waterhole has been maintained by the camp to sustain the myriad of animals and birds that come to drink there. On the other side of the dry Boteti River bed is the The Makgadikgadi National Park. The Boteti River is one of the few drainage systems that carry the Okavango floodwater out of the delta in times of medium and heavy rainfall, deep into the Kalahari.
- Situated on the banks of the Boteti River surrounded by great vast thirstlands where water is priceless and attracting some of Africa's last remaining great wildlife populations.
- Meno A Kwena offers a traditional safari experience dating back to the 1800's.
- Owner run and managed ensuring a personal safari experience.

Resident and nomadic wildlife includes the big and small cats, impala, kudu, warthog, monkeys, jackal, and occasionally wild dog, elephant and giraffe. Bird life is excellent along the ravine thanks to the lush woodlands of acacia, lead wood and terminalia.
