Mad About Mana
Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools offers a truly remote and rugged wilderness experience. Named after the four large ‘pools’ that are remnants of ancient lakes carved by the famed Zambezi River, the region gives you the opportunity to explore by foot, safari vehicle, canoe or motor boat, always in the expert care of highly specialised guides. Mana means ‘four’ in the local Shona language.
Caroline has been itching to get back to the bush, her happy place. So she did…
She's just returned home in Cape Town after a week exploring Mana Pools – a combination of national park and private concessions. She's always loved the Zambian side of the Zambezi River, the Lower Zambezi National Park, but found it fascinating to see the differences between the two, only separated by the mighty waters of the river.
She decided to travel with a dear friend and had such fun exploring the various camps together. Highlights from their trip include morning canoe safaris, surprise bush breakfasts, sleep outs under the stars, incredible wildlife viewing as well as swimming in the Zambezi River and enjoying meals on remote sandbanks (their guides made sure no crocodiles and hippos were around!)
This is an authentic safari destination that we especially recommend to clients returning to Africa for an off-the-beaten track experience.
