Mana Pools National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a beautiful 2,196 sq. km wildlife conservation area in northern Zimbabwe. Mana means "four" in Shona, (one of the main vernacular languages in Zimbabwe) and it refers to the number of large permanent pools left by the Zambezi River as it flows into the flood plain. Mana is known as one of Africa’s best game viewing areas, as many large animals come here in search of water. It is also an excellent area for fishing, of course, and bird-watching, being rich in vegetation diversity from river frontage to forests of mahogany, wild fig, acacia albida and baobabs.
John's Camp, also known as The Mana Pools Safari Company, is situated within Mana Pools on Zimbabwe’s northern border with Zambia. The Zambezi River forms a natural boundary between the 2 countries with Mana on the southern banks.
Declared a World Heritage Site in 1984, Mana Pools National Park is one of the most beautiful game reserves in Africa. It offers some of the most outstanding walking in Zimbabwe.
