Meno a Kwena is located on the Boteti River, which forms the western boundary of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. The area is home to somes Botswana’s largest wildebeest and zebra migration, meerkats, and the various species of predators including brown hyaena. Perhaps the most diverse natural wildlife habitats in all of Southern Africa. This habitat is home to Meno a Kwena Tented Camp.

The salt pans are a fascinating source of archaeological and historic relics in and around what was once the bed of a vast inland lake. The camp offers optional salt pans experience safaris that include a quad bike trips into the middle of the salt pan to sleep out under a canopy of stars.


The fully serviced authentic Botswana safari camp maintains an atmosphere of the original safari experience. Guests appreciate this, as it is the true African safari experience people are after.

Safari tents and equipment from a previous mobile’ safari operation combined with permanent fixtures, built by local craftspeople, with locally collected materials. There are, of course, the luxuries of flush toilets and a natural Boteti rock pool to wallow in on hot summer days.

All seven fully serviced safari tents have semi-attached bathrooms, including a shower and flush toilet each, are perched on the edge of the riverbank. A hundred feet below camp is the waterhole that attracts lots of animals during the dry season. Emphasis in the camp is placed on the amazing view from camp, and so no matter where guests are they may watch the scenes played out, whether from the plunge pool, their tents, the verandas, or the bathrooms.
