Mana madness!

Views: 160 Visited: Jun 2019 Reviewed: Jun 25, 2019

Mana Pools is a perfect mix of serenity and extreme excitement. On one hand, the never-ending scenes of flat plains which surround the winding Zambezi River successfully leaves one drooling at the beauty of the setting. There’s something special about being by this magical body of water. Gazing out past the river is one of the closest things to perfection that I’ve ever seen, and there’s no doubt that this picture would be extremely hard to be... read more

Tranquility at its best

I had such a fab time here! Like some of the other reviewers, I included a canoe safari and was able to get so close to the wildlife. I had the misfortune of going near the end of the rainy season, and it was so hot and muggy the day I was canoeing. But, the small time I was there has made me want to return during the dry season.

All on my own

Foreign visitors rarely make it to Zimbabwe, put off by the country's misguided reputation. Zimbabwean people are some of the kindest and most welcoming in the world, and when they see a foreign face they're desperate to show that their reputation is undeserved. It's a very safe and beautiful country, marred by political news stories. At Mana Pools, I was the only tourist.

Located beside the lower Zambezi River, the park blossoms into a bro... read more

Amazing uncharted territory brimming with animals!

Views: 676 Visited: Sep 2012 Reviewed: Jun 01, 2013

Mana would have to be, in my humble opinion, one of the most underrated game parks in Africa. For game viewing, this is hand down as good as anything you’ll find in Kenya and Tanzania, yet the fact that it’s a pain in the butt to reach and not nearly as ‘organized’ means your feeling of being completely out in the wilderness is multiplies ten-fold. Took our group of overland tourists here so we were completely self-sufficient for two days and ... read more
