Mana Pools
is a superb wildlife reserve which lies at the heart of a very important conservation area which also includes Lower Zambezi National Park across the river in Zambia and several substantial game management areas.

The scenery in Mana Pools is magnificent, centred on the mighty Zambezi River, whose meandering waters are responsible for depositing the unusually rich soils that line the river, creating broad grassy floodplains and impressive stands of open mahogany and ebony forests.

The area contains excellent densities of wildlife, notably elephants, lions, leopards, spotted hyenas, hippos and crocodiles. But perhaps most excitingly, this is one of the very best locations in Africa for wild-dogs.

Mana Pools is renowned as one of the very best locations in Africa for walking safari. Some of the guides here have been in the park for decades and have personal relationships with individual elephants and other animals.

One of the very best locations for walking safari is the simple but fabulous Goliath Safari Camp, personally hosted by legendary guide Stretch Ferreira, who is famed for his remarkably close animal interactions.

Mana Pools is also famous for canoe safari on the Zambezi River, which can also get rather exciting at times, the resident hippos can be quite unpredictable.

Camps here tend to be relatively rustic and authentic, small personable places which tend to appeal most to a more outdoorsy and experienced safari traveller.
