ACTIVITIES AND WILDLIFE

Situated in the northern region of Zimbabwe on the southern banks of the Zambezi River Mana Pools National Park is a wildlife rich, biodiverse wilderness and is a paradise for walking and canoeing safaris.

You can expect to spot hippopotamus, crocodile, elephants and a wonderful array of aquatic birds within this UNESCO World Heritage Site and there’s a good chance of seeing packs of wild dog and lions hunting around waterholes where prey are seemingly easy pickings.

The landscapes are beautiful too, dotted with acacia trees whose shade becomes vital to the parks more than 12,000-strong elephant population in the dry season. The park offers the feeling of remoteness and extreme wilderness and if you visit in winter you’ll find yourself exploring amongst the highest concentration of wildlife in Africa.

Game Drives – safaris in this game-rich region offer the chance to get close to wildlife such as eland, elephant, African wild dogs, water buck, big herds of buffalo, kudu, lion and leopard.

Walking Safaris – walking in Mana Pools is one of the closest experiences of being in the complete wilderness and often walks are along the riverbank of the Zambezi. The area is one of the best to experience wild dog encounters on foot.

Canoeing – the Lower Zambezi River is the perfect setting for an adventurous canoeing safari. Paddle along the tranquil waters of the Zambezi River and enjoy the pristine scenery of Mana Pools National Park from a unique angle. On your canoeing safari you’ll get the chance to see wildlife such as hippos, crocodiles, elephants, and incredible birdlife.

Fishing – the Zambezi River is well-known for some of the best tiger fishing in Africa. The slow flow of the Zambezi allows for great catch-and-release tiger fishing with your guide.
