Mana Pools National Park

Safaris including Mana Pools National Park

In the extreme north of Zimbabwe, beyond the mountainous escarpment which lines the rift valley that we know as the "Lower Zambezi Valley", Mana Pools National Park isn't at all easy to access. There is a long route, via road and boat, from Lusaka, but most visitors fly here instead - from Victoria Falls, Hwange, or Harare.

When you get here, it's worth it. Mana is a truly magical park, certainly one of Africa's best. So as many of these trips reflect, once you've made the effort to get here, it's well worth enjoying an extended stay - and we'd think of about a week in Mana Pools being a good length of time here if you can spare it.

Read on for trip ideas which include Mana - and then discuss your ideas with you as we help to plan your trip:
