Mana Pools Lodges
Mana Pools National Park, Africa's Untouched Wildlife Safari Destination
Mana Pools National Park and the bordering Sapi and Chewore safari area now comprises no less than 6800 square kilometres. This wildlife area within Zimbabwe remains largely untouched and, in many places, is as wild and remote as one can find in Africa.
Mana Pools is located in the Lower Zambezi valley, an area rich in wildlife, birdlife, and scenic vistas. This famed wildlife destination is a must-visit for anyone that is looking for the very best in safari activities and wildlife sightings when on a Zimbabwe safari.
Wildlife sightings on game drives, canoeing and walking safaris include; hippopotamus, crocodiles, zebra, elephant, Cape buffalo, lion, cheetah, Cape wild dog, leopard and brown hyena. Mana Pools' birding in the summertime is equally spectacular.
Mana Pools safari activities include morning, afternoon or full-day game drives, canoeing adventures, and of course, those amazing Mana Pools walking safaris.
Mana Pools National Park as a destination offers up a choice of safari lodges and safari camps either located on the Zambezi River or slightly more inland. The difference between the two options mainly boils down to pricing, with the riverfront properties being more expensive. The wildlife sightings between the two options are +- the same, as one will transverse both regions on game drives.
Our Zimbabwe lodges portfolio of what are the best lodge options when on a safari in Zimbabwe's Lower Zambezi Valley and Mana Pools, one of Africa's great wildlife areas, awaits.
