Location is a significant factor

This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Mana Pools National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site based on its untouched wilderness and pure beauty. Zambezi Expeditions is right in the thick of it. On the banks of the river along the shoreline under the winter thorn and ebony trees. For only eight months of the year (in the dry season), this is the place you want to be. In the wild. Among nature.

With only six Meru-style canvas tents. All sides rolled up, you’re in the bush and it’s exclusive. It’s a classic tented camp with bucket showers. Don’t think rudimentary though, it’s rather more civilised with everything you’d need and some additional comforts. Yet it still stays true to being a ‘real deal’ mobile camp in the heart of the African wilderness.

From Mana Main Airstrip it’s a 40 minute game drive to camp. It’s civilised but nowhere near civilisation. It’s a hefty five to six hours drive from Harare and that’s not for the faint hearted. You have got to know how to drive a 4x4 and be comfortable heading off road. This is big-game country and you’re smack bang in the middle of it.

Known for some of the best wild dog encounters. Even better on foot. This area is surreal. The wildlife is amazing and the sunrises and sunsets rival some of the finest. You’re in for an absolute treat here. Not so much in terms of luxury but if you’re happy the basics are well covered and it’s all about the destination for you. Then Zambezi Expeditions is a sure-fire win.

Guided walking safaris and canoeing are the highlights here. Glide through the waters of the mighty Zambezi River getting up close to wildlife or trek through the bush and along the shoreline on foot with your armed guide. Keep your eyes peeled.

Morning and afternoon game drives in open safari vehicles into the Mana Pools National Park and floodplains. There’s loads of wildlife here. Makes sense since this is one of the world’s wildest and best preserved natural ecological areas. Enjoy it. There are few places as magical as this.

With over 350 bird species, bird watching is mighty fine in these parts too. On walks, on drives, from your canoe or even just sitting and relaxing.

Catch and release fishing from shore. Who knows you could land a big one? A tiger fish that is. Reeling in a hippo would be a hopeless feat. Good luck.
