Main description of Meno A Kwena

Meno a Kwena promises a big 5 experience of a different kind, tapping into your 5 senses instead of 5 species. Experience the silence of the Makgadigadi pans, the bustle of river seeking herds, floating on the river, phenomenal parks and willdlife, walks that put you in touch with inconspicuous plants and critters, viewing lounges that keep you in the moment, food that nurtures the soul, and that warm sage-laden breeze… It all awaits you at Meno a Kwena.


Anyone can tell a story but not everyone’s story is interesting. With Meno’s welcoming, quirky and authentic safari feel, your story is sure to be one that invokes a degree of envy amongst your listeners. Experience is the difference. Be enlightened and visit Meno a Kwena Tented Camp to awaken the earth advocate within.
