Mana Pools National Park is a World Heritage Site based on its pure wilderness and beauty and is home to a wide range of animals. The park offers guided and self-guided walks amongst the animals with excellent canoeing and river fishing. The Zambezi River, of thousands of years, has left behind the remains of old river channels forming seasonal ponds and pools spread over an area of hundreds of square kilometres.

Our top accommodation spots in Mana Pool National Park

Set in the most remote part of the World Heritage Site in Mana Pools is the Kanga Pan. The 12-bedded tented camp has en-suite bathroom facilities with outdoor showers and basins overlooking the water hole. Two of the tents are family/honeymoon tents with their own private dining and seating area. The main area has a comfortable lounge and dining area offering you uninterrupted views of a very active water hole. Relax in the upper deck lounge under the shade of a mahogany or sit on the deck below near the splash pool and enjoy Kanga − the old Africa in a new era.

Ruckomechi Camp, situated in a private concession with access to the western areas of Mana Pools National Park, accommodates guests in ten spacious en-suite tented units, including two family units, all of which overlook the wide Zambezi River. The camp is set amongst broad-canopied ana trees, much loved by the elephants for their rich nutritious seeds. A favourite amongst guests, the camp also boasts an outdoor “bath with a view” in a secluded, scenic spot.
