Mana Pools Safari Lodge is tucked away near the eastern edge of the Mana Pools National Park, tucked between riverine figs and albida trees.

Each of its thatched chalets has a view of the expansive floodplains and the powerful Zambezi River beyond, providing guests with the opportunity to see game from the comfort of their room from dawn to dusk.

Mana Pools Safari Lodge Wildlife

The Ruckomechi River serves as a vital source of water for local wildlife, including elephants, kudu, buffalo, wild dogs, and even lions, which can be seen meandering through the camp to drink.

The lodge’s main area features a massive African mango tree, symbolizing our relationship with the natural world.


After a day of exploring the park, a swimming pool awaits to cool you off from the African heat. Walking safaris and guided game drives offer the chance to fully immerse yourself in the wild, accepting and absorbing its wisdom.

A meal beneath the African sky is the ideal way to cap off the day, reflecting on your experiences shared with the stars.

Mana Pools Safari Lodge Accommodation

Mosquito nets frame the bed, keeping the night bugs out for a restful sleep. Each chalet has two double beds, facing outward towards a wild vista leading to the Zambezi River.

From the comfort of your bed or the seclusion of your verandah, one can sit and watch wildlife wander down to drink. The rooms are spacious and wooden, effortlessly blending into nature beneath the trees.

The en-suite bathroom has a free-standing bath and showers for him and her, which accentuates the space within the chalet.
