Mana Pools Accommodation

Access is difficult and therefore restricted to long drives or charter flights, because of this there is not a great deal of choice when it comes to finding a place to stay

Mana Pools National Park is situated in the middle Zambezi Valley on the northern most border of Zimbabwe. This iconic national park is well known for its large concentrations of wildlife, especially in the dry season, and its outstanding scenery.

Accommodation is limited to a few luxury safari camps, a couple of mobile safaris camps or the National Parks facilities.

The National Parks have several campsites available for the self drive tourist and two lodges which are in dire need of repair.

Luxury safari camps include, Ruckomechi, Vundu, Goliath Safaris, Nyamatusi and Chikwenya all situated along the river. Kanga Camp and Kavinga camp are situated deep inland and offers a quite different experience.

A couple of safari operators have access to sites designated for mobile tented camps. These camps are not permanent and are taken down and re-erected every couple of weeks. More glamping than camping though, with en-suite bathrooms, beds etc. very comfortable.

Canoeing safaris are a very popular activity in Mana Pools, as this is an extremely beautiful stretch of river, rich in wildlife. Canoeing is an idyllic way to really experience this park but suited to the more adventurous, as dodging hippos and crocodiles is a daily pastime. There are few different options available which include luxury and not so luxurious canoe trips.

Good Afternoon Boo,
Just wanted to let you know that we are now back in Swaziland and had an incredibly fun time enjoying Victoria Falls! All the activities lived up to the hype and I would like to thank you for all your help in organising a busy but full holiday for us! Everything went smoothly from the moment we arrived to the time we left.
Also wondering where you prefer to have your reviews written?
Thanks again!

Memory I will not forget
by Sunitha
Hi Jane
Hope you are keeping well.I must say a very big thank you for all your assistance and advice for my trip. I had the most amazing time at Vic Falls, a memory I will not forget.
Thanks a million once again.

Fantastic Itinerary
by Graham & Janet (United Kingdom)
Dear Boo
We would like to offer our thanks for sorting a fantastic itinerary for our all too short visit to Vic Falls. The cruise on the Zambesi at sunset was a delight and the helicopter flight breathtaking! The pick ups were punctual and staff members were all very smiley, friendly, helpful and good company. The whole experience of the actual Falls and the town itself was outstanding.
We will return! Your company will be our first port of call. Many thanks for a very efficient service.
Best wishes
