Mana Pools is in the far north of Zimbabwe on the mighty Zambezi river. It borders on Zambia and is an extraordinary natural wilderness area. There is a combination of wilderness camping and luxury lodges to suit all tastes. Camping is fairly pricey, but the experience of staying in this incredible area is worth the cost involved.
Mana Pools was deemed to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and this area supports a wide variety of fauna and flora. Thousands of elephants and buffalo range along the banks of the river and the wooded acacia plains. Lions and other hunters such as wild dogs and hyaenas are spotted regularly by visitors to the park. There is also a healthy population of antelope.
Some of the lodges in the area offer canoe safaris and other water-based activities. It is also a paradise for photographers and birdwatching is spectacular.
Mana Pools is not far from the impressive Kariba Dam and a combination of these two destinations makes a wonderful holiday.
