Mana pools & South Luangwa Tour Details

Mana Pools National Park is synonymous with the Zambezi River, elephants, lions, remoteness and wilderness. This unique park is a World Heritage Site based on its wildness and beauty, together with its wide range of large mammals, over 350 bird species, and its aquatic wildlife.

The name “Mana’’ means “four” in the local Shona language. This applies to the four large pools inland from the Zambezi River. These pools are the remnants of oxbow lakes that the Zambezi River carved out thousands of years ago, as it changed its course northwards.

This large area is without physical boundaries, and the wildlife is free to move throughout the area. They may even travel northwards across the Zambezi River into Zambia, where there are also large wilderness areas set aside for wildlife conservation.

Experts have dubbed South Luangwa to be one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, and not without reason. The Luangwa River is the most intact major river system in Africa, and is the life-blood of this 9059 km² Park with its wide variety of wildlife, birds and vegetation. The changing seasons add to the Park’s richness, as it ranges from dry bushveld in the winter, to a lush, green wonderland in the summer months. There are 60 different animal species and over 400 different bird species in South Luangwa National Park.
