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.

Meno A Kwena Tented Camp Game Viewing and Activities

The zebra and wildebeest migration travel along the Boteti during the dry season (May to November) and tiny pools of water are the only surface water available to them. 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. The safari operation incorporates three protected wildlife sanctuaries in the Kalahari The Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans National Parks, and Central Kalahari Game Reserve.
