Southern Africa’s largest zebra and wildebeest migration has recently departed Meno A Kwena on the Boteti River for their breeding grounds in the Makgadikgadi Saltpans.
The Boteti River levels rose to the highest recorded in over 40 years and recently started dropping slowly as the long dry season comes to an end. The river is going to be with us for a while - 10 to 30 years if we keep up the trends of the last ten years to complete the forty year cycles between drier and wetter periods.
The two viewing tents on the river bank have been improved for comfort and to avoid future damage resulting from the hectic summer storms we experience. We are about to complete the new staff dining tent after which we start building the new main tented kitchen. How the chefs have managed in their temporary kitchen is quite a feat. Then we plan to build a reception / shop tent and lounge bar tent during the dry season.
