This is a small, intimate camp on the banks of the Zambezi with just six guest tents. The camp is set up specifically when guests are booked in, and taken down when they leave, leaving no footprint.
This is camping in comfort. Each of the meru-style tents has twin beds with thick duvets and all the homely touches of rugs, cushions and throws. The en-suite bathroom to the rear has a flush toilet and an open bucket shower open so you can shower under the stars (but with complete privacy). The front porch of your tent has comfy seating facing the river where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature and enjoy the stunning views of the Zambezi Escarpment in Zambia as a dramatic backdrop.
A short distance away is the main tent, here you can spend your downtime with other guests if you wish watching birds and animals by the water. Tasty meals are freshly prepared in the bush kitchen and served at the communal dining table, or on the river bank under the stars, you won't go hungry. Breakfast is often served al fresco by the river too, a wonderful way to begin your day, and the riverside is also the venue for sundowner drinks at the other end of the day.
Mana Pools is not a UNESCO World Heritage Site for nothing, it really is a special place. You can explore the river banks and surrounding area on foot, Mana Pools is known for walking safairs. Your guides are experienced and know the area well, they are keen to share their knowledge with you. To keep things varied you could also take a canoe trip on the Zambezi gliding past the wildlife as it grazes at the water's edge or alternatively take to a vehicle and drive a little deeper into the park on the lookout for different animals. Elephant are prevalent here as are hippos and lions. There are also African wild dogs in certain areas of the park, add to this an abundance of kudu, waterbuck, and even leopard and honeybadger it's a nature lover's dream.
