The eco-friendly and intimate Meno-a-Kwena safari camp is set at the confluence of two contrasting but equally beautiful of Botswana’s worlds – the lush Okavango Delta and the rugged Kalahari Desert. This diverse landscape attracts a wider variety of wildlife than you might find in either one of the two ecosystems alone, so you can see savannah animals like cheetah and wild dog as well as desert specialists like meerkat and the regal black-maned Kalahari lion.
Daily safari activities take you into the heart of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park where masses of zebra arrive to enjoy fresh grazing after the summer rains in December and January. The Kalahari springs to life and if the rains are especially good then the region’s vast salt pans fill up and attract myriad bird life including flamingos, waders and wildfowls. Dry season – from about May to August - is equally thrilling as big game are easily found close to water sources. Meno-a-Kwena is ideally positioned to witness this phenomenon with its prime hilltop position overlooking the Boteti River, the life-giving channel running from the Okavango Delta into the Kalahari.
