Mana Pools National Park, What To Know

To the north, near the Indian Ocean, is where you’ll find Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe. The Zambezi River passes through it. One of the world’s greatest natural wonders, the park stretches over a total area of around 2196 km2 and is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site that also includes five other safari areas (Charara, Hurungwe, Sapi, Chewore, and Dande) and Lower Zambezi National Park (Zambia).

One of the few true wilderness regions, Mana Pools is secluded and hard to reach. Mana, which translates to “four” in the native language of Shona, is the name given to the area’s four pools (the others being Green Pool, Chisasiko, Chine, and Long Pool). The latter is the biggest of the four, spanning over six kilometers and home to a sizable permanent population of hippos, crocodiles, and a wide variety of aquatic birds.
