Mana Pools, a hidden gem located along the meandering banks of the Zambezi River, bordering Northern Zimbabwe and Zambia.
Welcome to the untouched wilderness of Mana Pools National Park, a hidden gem located along the meandering banks of the Zambezi River, bordering Northern Zimbabwe and Zambia. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This off-the-beaten-track piece of heaven is a haven for both wildlife enthusiasts and adventurers seeking an authentic safari experience. This is not a “tick-a-box” safari, it is true nature in its elemental state. The total protected area equates to almost 1.7 million hectares of some of the most remote wilderness in South Africa.
Mana Pools is named after the Shona word for “four” and references the four largest oxbow lakes – Main, Chie, Shisambuk, and Long. On the floodplains, groves of Ana Trees, create a perfect photographic backdrop, and if you are lucky you will get to see one of Mana Pools’ famous sights – bull elephants stretching up to reach the nutritious seedpods, sometimes balancing on their hind legs.
