Mana Pools National Park
Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Mana Pools National Park spans over 219,600 hectares of conservation area home to an incredible abundance of wildlife. The name "Mana" means four in the local Shona language, and the park is named for the four large pools that lie inland from the Zambezi. Blessed with outstanding beauty and untouched landscapes, this is a timeless wilderness considered to be a throwback to the classic safaris in the "Out of Africa" style.
Why Mana Pools National Park?
Drawn by the abundance of water and lush plains, the waterholes attract a large number of herbivore congregation including large herds of zebras, kudus, impalas, giraffes and elephants while the deep water bodies are home to Africa's largest population of hippos and crocodiles. Large predators follow the prey which include strong prides of lions, some of the largest packs of African wild dogs, hyenas and healthy population of leopards and cheetahs.
