Mana Pools

Mana Pools National Park lies at the heart of the Zambezi Valley, where the Zambezi River meanders for 300km to the Mozambican border. It is a remote, wildlife-rich place with spectacular views of the river, floodplains, the tree canopy and the mountains of the Rift Valley escarpment over the border in Zambia.

The area offers large concentrations of buffalo and elephant, while predators such as lion, wild dog, leopard and cheetah are often sighted. Greater kudu, Burchell’s zebra, impala, warthog and common waterbuck can be seen on the surrounding plains and the grunting of hippo can be heard all day. Birdlife is superb, with numerous local specials like collared palm-thrush and racket-tailed roller. Mana Pools offers both the experienced safari traveller and the newcomers alike the wilderness experience of a lifetime. Get closer to the action than ever before and see nature the way it was intended to be in Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe.
