Mana Pools National Park was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO in 1984 and it’s probably the most unique National Park in Zimbabwe, if not in Southern Africa!
Its location along the Zambezi River is more than attractive; it is a dream for many people to stay here. It is a hard-to-get treasure: access is a mission, and places to stay are limited, and have a price tag attached to it. Unless you go camping on the various campsites of national parks, whereby you need a good 4 x 4 vehicle carrying all camping equipment and food, except water and firewood. It is worth all your endeavours to get here: abundant wild life and breath-taking views of the Zambezi River and its escarpment.
Access either by chartered plane, by road (4 x 4 necessary) or by boat transfer from Chirundu.
For the more adventurous, you can access Mana Pools by going on a canoe trip, starting either in Kariba or Chirundu. Some people rates this activity as the best they ever did, others prefer the easier way. Whatever you choose to do Mana Pools will forever stay in your memories!
