Perched above the Boteti River on the western fringe of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park in Botswana, Meno A Kwena Tented Camp overlooks the waters that quench the thirst of a wide array of wildlife, including thousands of zebras taking part in Southern Africa’s largest migration.
With its copper vase bucket showers and a recycled paper products project, the elegant, solar-powered camp has a low carbon footprint and minimal environmental impact without skimping on guest comfort. Further solar upgrades and increased recycling will soon make Meno A Kwena a ‘must visit’ safari destination for any guest who considers sustainability and environmental responsibility to be non-negotiable whenever they travel.
Low impact Meno A Kwena Tented Camp is considered one of the top 48 sustainable safari operations on the African continent by David Bristow and Colin Bell who included the lodge in their magnificent coffee table book: Africa’s Finest. This well researched book painstakingly separates the handful of truly sustainable safari operations from the host of green-washers and eco-pirates that pervade the African safari lodge industry.
