Mana Pools National Park is a World Heritage Site and best known for its large herds of elephant which roam the open vleis, rich woodland and river beds leading down to the Zambezi River.

The populations of these elephants are very stable and they can often be seen standing on their hind legs reaching for the succulent fruit of the sausage tree.

Mana’s flood plains turn into a broad expanse of lakes after the rainy season and large numbers of zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, sable antelope, oryx, rare roan antelope and other wildlife can be seen visiting the numerous ‘pools’ from which the national park’s name is derived, while the river itself is home to numerous hippopotamus and crocodiles.

Accomodation
Six lavish tented suites, four of which are joined into two-bedroomed units, are set on raised platforms and provide unhindered views of the surrounding wilderness and river beyond from your private deck and plunge pool - a welcome respite from the afternoon heat between activities.
Completely solar powered, with indoor and outdoor showers, and sumptuous king-size beds swathed in shades of safari khaki, Nyamatusi is as ecologically sensitive as it is comfortable.

Meals are taken in the open-sided main lodge, where you will watch the sunset over the waters, before enjoying drinks and lively conversation around the campfire to end the day.

Experiences
One of the principal attractions of Mana Pools is the wide range of game viewing activities that can be enjoyed. The highly expert guides will take you walking with an armed scout and tracking animals on foot through the bush learning a huge amount about the flora and fauna as you go.

You might like to spend the latter part of the afternoon paddling a stable canoe on the Zambezi, your guide silently paddling you past pods of sleepy hippo as you watch animals coming down to drink and interact by the water’s edge.
You might like to take an evening boat cruise and enjoy a cool drink as the sun sets over the waters. The birding is extraordinary and your passionate guide will impart their knowledge of the resident avian species no matter how you choose to explore.

Specialist open-topped vehicles take you further afield and at night a spotlight is used to see nocturnal creatures such as civet, aardvark, porcupine and leopard on the prowl.

Anyone who wants to try their hands at tiger fishing might catch a fish up to 20lbs and be assured of a good fight! A strict catch-and-release policy is observed.
