We spent two nights at Meno a Kwena and enjoyed it very much. The setting - overlooking the Boteti River - is beautiful, and the lodgings are very comfortable. The entire staff is friendly and helpful, and the food, cooked over hot coals in an outdoor kitchen, is absolutely delicious. KBL, our guide on the game drive, was excellent, and...

But we were told best time to come is April to Sept, when all the animals come to Boteti River for water.. that would make the view from the rooms more amazing. Staff is extra courteous.. like family!

Dumela! Thank you so much for providing feedback. Hopefully we'll see you back during the migration season? We truly believe that each season at camp has its advantages (although the sight of the zebra migration is definitely something to behold) and we are happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us.

We stayed three nights at this beautiful, very private and old fashioned Safari Camp. The tents are new, bigger and very comfortable and power is no provided. A very caring owner-family and very nice staff. The location is very unique close to the river, with a lot of game close to the camp at the river.

It's quite a long (90-120 minute) transfer by road from Maun. The camp itself is fine, well-appointed but not luxurious. External toilets & showers are now replaced by en-suite facilities, and there are in-room charging facilities. The food is OK and freshly-cooked, but nothing special. Home-made breads & baking was very good. The main areas are OK, but not very...

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
