Mana Pools National Park


The most remote park in the country, Mana Pools is the first Biosphere Reserve in Zimbabwe. It’s known for its big herds of elephant, buffalo, endangered wild dogs, lions and the more shy leopards, cheetahs and spotted hyenas.

A seasonal floodplain filled with glittering pools

A rare combination of typography, rainfall and vegetation gives rise to some of the best game viewing imaginable around this network of pools threaded along the Zambezi River.

Where to find Mana Pools National Park

Mana Pools National Park is found to the north of Zimbabwe and lies on the lower reaches of the great Zambezi River. Opposite Mana, on the Zambian side of the river, is the lower Zambezi National Park.
