Bushman Walking Experience
Small families of Bushman from the Ju! Hoansi clan village of Xai Xai on the Botswana/Namibia border of the Kalahari Desert come to Meno a Kwena to operate our walking and cultural experience. This activity gives our guests an insight into their hunter/gatherer way of life as they have coexisted with wildlife for thousands of years. This is one of our most popular activities offered to guests.
The floating hide is an additional activity that enhances the wildlife viewing opportunities right in front of camp. The hide offers guests a close up experience of wildlife activity in and around the river.
