Bushman Walk

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 share their knowledge of one of the last great nomadic tribes. This immensely interesting walking and cultural experience gives you an insight into their hunter/gatherer way of life as they have coexisted with wildlife for thousands of years. This gentle walk is very popular and appeals to all ages.

Our viewing hide, on the Boteti River, offers guests an all-year round floating hide experience. Here we offer guests a close-up of wildlife activity from the vantage point of the river. With an abundance of wildlife and birdlife this is every photographer’s dream. We provide picnic lunches and bar facilities for guests spending time here (by prior arrangement) – this hide will truly delight.

Full / Half Day Game Drive in the Makgadikgadi National Park

Departing camp shortly after breakfast you can enjoy a full day of game viewing within the Makgadikgadi National Park. After a 90 min transfer to the Park gates, you will spend the day searching for the Park's plethora of species. Lunch and tea is taken in picturesque locations along the bank of the Boteti River often with elephants and antelope for company, as they pass through.

Salt Pans Sleep Out (May - September & subject to weather and the dryness of the pans)

Our salt pans sleep out requires a minimum 3 night stay and a minimum 2 guests. You will depart Meno a Kwena after breakfast following your first night's stay and drive to the edge of the salt pans for a picnic lunch (approximately 3-4 hours drive). Following an open-air siesta you continue to your campsite in time for sundowners. After a campfire dinner you will sleep under the vast skies with a myriad of spectacular stars to accompany you.

The following day you return to camp after a delicious breakfast at sunrise in time to join the Bushmen for a cultural walking experience and your final night with us. Please note that the sleep out must be booked in advance.

This activity must be pre-booked.

Visits to the local communities (on request)

We maximise community involvement and benefits from our sustainable tourism operations that ultimately secures a future for wildlife and their environment. The proximity of camp to rural communities allows us to offer our guests exposure to fascinating traditional Batswana cultural experiences in and around camp.
