Mana Pools National Park
Finest safari spot on the Zambezi River. It’s the core of the UNESCO World Heritage Site which covers the Mana-Sapi-Chewore complex. Mana is also central to the larger Middle Zambezi Biosphere Reserve. Renowned for the best canoe safaris in Africa also regarded as one of the continent’s top walking safari destinations. Ideal from May to November for active safaris. Wildlife is prolific!
The shoreline is dominated by a floodplain with shallow pools
under a rich canopy of tall acacias and ancient stands of mahogany
and ebony trees. The Zambezi escarpment rises up on either sides of
this deep valley. From Mana Pools the landscape is spectacular with
the Zambian escarpment acting as a backdrop.
The floodplain itself hosts a profusion of big game during the
dry season from June to October. Big bull elephants roam
widely and prevail. With clear and open views through the
parklands the stage is set for some of the best walking safari
territory found anywhere in Africa.
The Zambezi River adds another dimension however. The river is
wide and languid with deep channels separating seasonal and
permanent islands. These offer perfect overnight sites for our
This combination of dramatic landscapes, large numbers of varied
wildlife and the ability to cover wilderness on both land and water
sets Mana Pools National Park apart. Exceptional guiding standards,
small traditional tented camps and the backed up "fly camping"
options seal Mana's reputation.
