Mana Pools National Park
Mana means 'four', in reference to the four large permanent pools formed by the meanderings of the middle Zambezi. These 2,500 square kilometres of river frontage, islands, sandbanks and pools, flanked by forests of mahogany, wild figs, ebonies and baobabs, is one of the least developed National Parks in Southern Africa.
One of Zimbabwe's two world heritage sites. The Zambezi spreads out over the flood plain on its way to the sea. The river is calm here and canoe safaris are ideal as you can quietly approach the animals - impossible in a noisy 4x4. Wildlife includes buffalo, zebra, eland and kudu and this one of the few places left where black rhino can be seen.
