Meno a Kwena
Adventure tented camp
Meno A Kwena is an old-style safari camp, run by David Dugmore, an experienced guide with a real passion for Botswana's bush and for community development. It is situated on tribal land on a cliff edge overlooking the Boteti River, which began to flow again in late 2008, having been dry for over 15 years. The name Meno A Kwena is the local name for the area, which translates as 'teeth of the crocodile'.It is a rustic camp with a relaxed atmosphere and warm welcome. The team's keen interest in the surrounding area and its wildlife really shines through.
Meno A Kwena Tented Camp accommodates up to 16 guests in eight fully serviced en suite canvas tents. Tents are hidden amongst the natural vegetation for privacy, and situated in full view of the Boteti River where wildlife comes to drink from the dry Kalahari.There is a natural rock plunge pool for cooling off after a day on safari.Sand paths through the bush link the tents to Meno A Kwena's main area. A large L-shaped marquee makes up the kitchen, bar, dining area and lounge, complete with well-stocked reference library and comfortable sofas scattered with cushions covered in bright eastern and kikoifabrics.
Activities from Meno A Kwena include walking trips and cultural activities with the local community. 4WD safaris are also available, varying from short sorties in the local Khumaga area to full-day safaris with a picnic further afield in Makgadikgadi Pans National Park or Nxai Pan National Park.Meno A Kwena can also organize an overnight camp out on the salt pans.
