Day 2/3/4 Mana Pools National Park
Early morning after breakfast we travel east to Mana Pools National Park which 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 the wide range of large mammals, over 350 bird species and aquatic wildlife. Mana Pools is one of Zimbabwe most popular parks, and it is easy to see why it falls into this profile. 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 remnant ox-bow lakes that the Zambezi River carved out thousands of years ago as it changed its course northwards. Hippopotamus, crocodiles and a wide variety of aquatic birds are associated with the pools. ''Long Pool'', is the largest of the four pools, extending some six kilometres in a west-east direction. This pool has a large population of hippo and crocodiles and is a favourite for the large herds of elephant that come out of the thickly vegetated areas in the south to drink. We will be waited by our 4 x 4 vehicle which will take us to the deep side of Mana pools and we will be experiencing wildlife for 3 nights in the tented safari camp to be advised, walking safaris are most popular in these reserves with an experienced guide with a rifle. every day you have two choices of activities that you can always take up.

After an experience in Mana pools we will travel to Kariba which is the entrance to The Matusadona National Park in Zimbabwe is bursting with wildlife and is a destination where you can view the game during walking safaris, boat and canoe excursions, as well as game drives in four-wheel drive vehicles. The Matusadona National Park has high numbers of huge Nile crocodiles, so if you want to meet one of these prehistoric creatures, you know where to go. In fact, there are so many crocs in the Matusadona National Park, that the Zimbabwe National Parks Board allow croc farms to collect eggs during October. Because of the large number of crocs in the Matusadona National Park in Zimbabwe, swimming is not advisable (except when you do it in a cage off one of the houseboats that are available). Elephants love cooling down in the water, so in the Matusadona National Park you will be able to see the fascinating sight of them merrily swimming along. Hippos are also in abundance. Many species of antelope, as well as lion and black rhino are also seen very often. If you are into fishing, the Matusadona National Park offers good bream and tiger fishing. The sunsets in the Matusadona National Park are known to be spectacular. Add to that the many dead trees, drowned during the initial building of the dam, where cormorants and fish eagles love to perch, and you have the recipe for taking exquisite photographs of the Matusadona National Park in Zimbabwe.
