Mana Pools

By November 18, 2019 No Comments

This is one of Zimbabwe’s if not Africa’s most amazing and popular areas.  Mana Pools is situated in the North of Zimbabwe along the majestic Zambezi River. It is also a World Heritage Site.  Mana means “four” and this relates to the inland pools in the Mana area. These pools formed from ox-bow lakes that the Zambezi River carved out thousands of years ago when the river changed its course Northwards.

Mana Pools is 2,196 km square, but is also part of the 10,500km square Parks and wildlife estate that runs from Kariba all the way to the Mozambique boarder. This huge area does not have physical boundaries, the wildlife are free to move throughout the area. They even travel across the river into Zambia.

There is always game to be seen, whether it is elephant meandering through the camp – munching on the Acacia pods or baboons sitting around enjoying the sunshine or even the shy impala.  Hippo snorting in the river and an abundant bird life – over 350 difference species to be exact, Mana Pools is so unique and special.
