Riverside Adventure at Mana Pools

Heart Pounding Wildlife Encounters and Aquatic Adventures

The Mana Pools National Park is contiguous with the Lower Zambezi, forming one of the largest protected areas in Zimbabwe. The river, island, and sandbanks are relatively undeveloped, making it a prime location for sightings of not only hippo and crocodile, but elephant, Cape buffalo, lion, and African wild dog as well.

Base yourself at Ruckomechi Camp or Mana Pools Safari Lodge for some truly exceptional riverside adventures. Boat trips along the Zambezi River are a must, particularly as you can safely get close to the huge elephant herds. Keen anglers can float all day for catch and release tiger fishing, and we also highly recommend an adrenaline rushing canoe trip down the river, where your guides will expertly steer you past sleepy hippo pods.
 
The en-suite tents at Ruckomechi are luxurious, but nothing beats sleeping out under the stars on the deck at nearby Parachute Pan. The sounds of nature will serenade you as you drift off to sleep on this incredible star bed, which is situated near to a well frequented watering hole.

I’ll be honest with you – I haven’t read this book since the 1970s! But when the team asked me to write a book review I immediately thought of “Slowly down the Ganges”.
