Located in the north of Zimbabwe, on the southern banks of the mighty Zambezi River, Mana Pools is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is one of the world’s wildest and best preserved natural ecological areas.
Bordering Zambia to it’s north and covering an area of 6,766km² this wildlife rich haven is home to large numbers of Elephants, Hippos and Nile crocodiles, as well as Lions, Wild Dog, Hyena, Leopard and more than 450 bird species.
Mana Pools offers a remote and exhilarating wildlife experience for visitors, who can explore this area with experienced and knowledgeable guides on foot and in 4×4 open safari vehicles. Water activities are also available such as canoeing, boating and catch & release fishing on the Zambezi River.
This area is best visited during the dry season, May to September, when nights and mornings can be as cold as 5°C/41°F to freezing, but daytime temperatures are still pleasant with a great deal of sunshine and this is when the wildlife viewing is at it’s best, with animals seeking out water at the waterholes. Most of the safari accommodation in this area is seasonal and close during the rainy months, so this is something to consider when you are planning your trip to Mana Pools.
