Overview
Mana Pools and Chitake Springs are unique safari destinations due to the abundance of wildlife there and the freedom guests have to WALK in the wild. Private camps at Mana start at around USD 500 per person per night plus transport. Whilst these are amazing places, they are rather expensive, You can visit Mana Pools and Chitake much more affordably with us, self-driving and using Zimparks facilities. Competent, armed Zimparks rangers will guide you on foot for walks in the wild. The net result is you can enjoy Mana Pools and Chitake at less than one-third of the price of private camps with Manapools.com and Zimparks. All campsites are un-fenced and wildlife can and do move freely through them. This is wild Africa as it was before the advent of mass tourism.
