Meno a Kwena
Makgadikgadi

Midway between the Okavango Delta and the spectacular Central Kalahari Game Reserve lies the quirky and charming Meno a Kwena, providing guests with a totally unique African wildlife experience.

Each of the nine luxurious guest tents have been lovingly designed to capitalise on the commanding views overlooking  a river often flooded with elephants and other animals – so you can watch game without leaving your bedroom.  Between May and November, Meno is perfectly situated to view Southern Africa’s largest zebra and wildebeest migration.

From this gorgeous camp, you can head off to tour the Kalahari and the stunning open plains and desert wildlife of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. At both reserves, desert-adapted meerkats and antelopes are regularly seen, while lions and cheetahs can sometimes be spotted in the Kalahari.

Alternately, you could enjoy fascinating walking tours with indigenous local people, providing an amazing insight into their culture, the area’s native plants and spectacular wildlife.

There is also a ‘floating hide’ which 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.

A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.
John Steinbeck

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
