Frankly, Mana Pools is terrific!
Frank and his group comprising two vehicles, two sets of parents and their two young girls, have just returned from their 2BWild-organised safari to Mana Pools in Zimbabwe.
“What a great trip, enjoyed by all as a terrific experience,” said Frank. “Thank you Viv for organising this trip for us.”
“The ferry crossing at Kazangula was a good experience, and only ZAR200 – they prefer Rands to Dollars here.”
Frank and party also took a day trip to Victoria Falls. “This was excellent and a must for anybody going that route, the Falls are simply amazing.”
“Mana Pools #20 is the best camp site we have ever had right on the Zambezi River and the animal interactions there were great. Even though there was lots of water around and the river was huge, there was no grazing due to the drought – therefore no grazers were around and so no predators, no cats, buffalo, wildebeest, – even zebras were scarce. But the area is superb, the scenery, trees and bird life is outstanding and the drives are good with brilliant river views.”
The road into Mana Pools was a different story though. Frank found this in very poor condition, but with signs that improvements were about to commence. However, the roads inside Mana are in good condition.
Mana here we come! [2BWild is visiting Mana Pools in July 2017 with trusty travel companions Rob and Di Wybrow and Johan and Elmare Kriel from Namibia]
