Activities at Little Vundu
With almost 400 bird species recorded, Mana Pools is any birder's dream destination. The range of habitats includes woodland, riverine and savannah. There are many predatory birds, as well as an abundance of waterbirds that can be found along the shore of the Zambezi River.
Canoeing down the Zambezi River offers a wonderful rare opportunity to experience game viewing from a different perspective. A truly memorable chance to slow down, enjoy the wide-open spaces of Mana Pools and appreciate the beauty of the wildlife that lives there. Our guests often comment canoeing is one of their most favourite activities with us.
Fishing on the Zambezi River is fun! You can look forward to catching chessa, tilapia, catfish and nkupi. Of course, there is the legendary Tiger Fish too - it is an excellent sports fish that puts up a great fight and makes for memorable stories if you are lucky enough to land one. We have a catch and release policy.
Mana Pools National Park is just over 200 square kilometres and life here is governed by the rhythm of its seasons. During a game drive, you will have a chance to see a variety of terrain and wildlife - an ever-changing feast for the eyes, and food for the soul!
Vehicles are open-aired, which allow for comfortable photography and game viewing. Private vehicles can be arranged when making your booking.
Mana Pools is one of the most wonderful wildlife destinations in Africa due to the abundance and diversity of wildlife found here. Witness the iconic elephants stand on their hind legs to reach the uppermost branches, watch the famous BBC Earth Dynasty painted wolves, listen to the snorts of hippos and rumble of herds of buffalos and feel the strength of a lion on a kill - all in all, there is nowhere quite as magical as Mana Pools!
One of the best ways to see Mana Pools is not by a vehicle as you would assume, but by taking a walk on the wide side instead with a walking safari.
It’s the slow and natural pace of a walk that connects you to the ground; it’s the sounds of the bush as you pause and listen; it’s the ability to stop at a moment’s notice and look at a footprint and decide what animal left it there and where it was heading. It also enables a photographer the opportunity for some incredible close encounters with rare animals that haven’t been scared away by the sound of vehicles.
The Bushlife Safaris Team won Best Walking Safari in 2019 in Zimbabwe. In essence, there’s simply no better way to see the wilds of Africa like you can on foot with our team!
