A classically-inspired safari camp boasting excellent wilderness views from a rocky clifftop
At Meno a Kwena, the clifftop tents with their classical-style furniture and locally-woven fabrics are only the start of the never-ending safari fun. From this superb eagle-eye setting, guests can overlook the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park and watch wildlife - including nomadic zebras - at the Boteti river below from a private veranda. For engrossing family-fun activities, Natural Selection’s Meno a Kwena offers everything from day trips to the Makgadikgadi Pans and a dip in a natural swimming pool, to guided walks with the indigenous San people and learning about Batswana traditions at a local village. Meno a Kwena also supports the Moreomaoto Village through school sponsorship, environmental education programmes and employment.
Best time to go to Botswana
Botswana's climate ranges from arid to semi-arid and is marked by hot and rainy summers, usually between November and March. This ‘green’ season is the best time to spot migrating birds, predators, and baby animals. However, many lodges in the Okavango Delta close during these months, so do check before you book. The dry season, between April and October, is the prime time to spot animals as they frequent water sources. This is also when the Delta floods, making it a great time for water-based activities. These months are a fantastic time to visit the salt pans, which will be dry from about June to September.
