Nestled within the Zambezi Valley lies a creation of Nature still pure, splendid, untouched and wild. With the mighty Zambezi flowing to the North, the wooded floodplain to the South plays host to one of the most astonishing wildlife experiences in Africa. This Mana Pools Photo Safari allows you the rare privilege to travel back in time to an Africa we all wish we knew, an Africa free of human encroachment, the Africa of your dreams.

Far removed from any urban landscape, Mana Pools has the special ability to transport you away from taxing modern-day living. Large elephant bulls balancing precariously on their hind-legs as they reach seven or eight meters into the canopy of an Ana Tree, prides of lion stalking Cape buffalo on the open floodplain during the heat of the day, or African wild dog running freely in pursuit of impala within the riverine forests.

Wildlife encounters are endless and intimate.

It is one of Southern Africa’s most undeveloped national parks, and that’s not a bad thing. The park welcomes its visitors to leave the confines of their vehicles, allowing you the life-changing experience of seeing Mana’s majestic wildlife on-foot. This is a rare opportunity to encounter nature in an intimate way, face-to-face and utterly exposed. All encounters are done under the guidance of a professional Zimbabwe guide, as well as your experienced Wild Eye guide. The animals will always have our utmost respect and will never be disturbed for our gratification.

Our idylic tented safari camp on this Mana Pools Photo Safari is located only meters away from the edge of the mighty Zambezi. The camp is warm & charming and is hosted by a team that puts your comfort & experience first. Exquisite cuisine, campfire stories & the sounds of Africa permeating your canvas tents all form part of an unforgettable encounter with Africa.

The remoteness of the park, the sheer size and the breathtaking beauty all come together to create an African experience unrivaled in equality.
