Mana Pools National Park Zimbabwe

Mana Pools National Park

Declared a World Heritage Site in 1984, Mana Pools National Park is one of the most beautiful game reserves in Africa. The Zambezi River forms a natural boundary between Zambia and Zimbabwe, with Mana Pools National Park being situated on the southern banks. It offers some of the most outstanding walking in Zimbabwe.

Mana Pools is situated in the Zambezi Valley, northern Zimbabwe. Mana means “four” in Shona, (one of the main vernacular languages here) – and it refers to the four large permanent pools left by the Zambezi River as it flows into this flood plain area. Mana Pools is one of Africa’s best game-viewing areas because many large animals come here in search of water. The area is teeming with life, great for fishing and bird-watching, and is rich in vegetation diversity, from river frontage to forests of mahogany, wild fig, acacia albida, and baobabs. Now a World Heritage site, Mana Pools has the largest concentration of hippo and crocodiles and you’ll see many buffalo and elephant here, too.
