Mana Pools is a national park where people come second to the undisturbed wildlife. The meandering Zambezi River and its unusually rich soil gives life to sandbanks, pools and grassy floodplains flanked by forests of mahogany and wild figs. This is the place for the walking safaris where, without the sound of engines, you can tune into the singsong of birds or the call of a lion rumbling over the Pridelands.
In this wild, rugged territory, you’ll find the safari guiding undisputedly high-end. Steal out at the crack of dawn tracking the footsteps of elephants, some of whom have deep longstanding connections with the local rangers. Tread among sculpture-like termite mounds passing roan antelope and huge numbers of buffalo along the way. As the sun reaches its zenith, you might spot a pack of wild dog advancing upon grazing impala. Later you could encounter scenes of jostling hippos as the evening erupts into orange-red hues.
Discover the intricacies of this wildlife-rich park with advice from our experienced experts, whether you want to canoe down the Zambezi River in search of wondrous birdlife or walk in the footsteps of lions.
