Mana Pools National Park
Mana Pools National Park, located in Zimbabwe’s northern area on the southern banks of the Zambezi River, can take your breath away with its majesty. Mana Pools is a wildlife-rich, biodiverse wonderland that will thrill at any turn, making it ideal for walking and canoeing safaris.
Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is known for its natural beauty and as one of the continent’s premier game-viewing areas. Inside this UNESCO World Heritage Site, you can expect to see hippopotamus, crocodiles, elephants, and a diverse variety of marine birds, as well as lionesses hunting near waterholes, where prey seems to be fast pickings.
The landscape is also stunning, with acacia trees providing shelter for the park’s more than 12,000 elephants during the dry season, as well as a sprinkling of colourful plant life. You’ll like the sense of isolation here, since you’re far from any human village. Just harsh wilderness surrounds you, and if you come in the winter, you’ll be wandering with Africa’s largest concentration of wildlife. An experience for which there are no adequate terms.
Visitors to Mana Pools can look forward to an array of activities such as canoe trips which are offered year-round and provide a unique and memorable way for visitors to experience the area’s striking scenic beauty and diverse fauna, while guided walks are a great way to take its pristine riverside forests. Other popular activities include game drives, river cruises, nature walks, bird watching, catch-and-release fishing, and searching for dinosaur tracks.
