Mana Pools National Park
Mana Pools National Park lies at the center of the Zambezi Valley, where the Zambezi River winds its way to the Mozambican border. “Mana”, meaning “four” in Shona, is named for the four main pools on this stretch of the Zambezi River – Main, Chine, Long and Chisambuk. These pools were once part of channels whose flow has long since ceased, but they are full of water year-round and thus quite attractive to the game in the region. Wildlife viewing is plentiful with large concentrations of buffalo, hippo and elephant found along the river. Predators such as lion, wild dog, leopard and cheetah are often sighted on the plains surrounding the river, as are greater kudu, Burchell’s zebra, impala, warthog and common waterbuck. Birdlife is also plentiful with numerous local species including collared palm-thrush, racket-tailed roller, purple-banded sunbird and black-throated wattle-eyes.
