As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it's not hard to see why Mana Pools National Park is a well-known place to visit in Zimbabwe. You should know that this unique park has two ‘faces’. During the rainy season, the usual flood plains you see turn into a vast lake. This may also be the reason why canoe safaris, in particular, are popular here. With a Mana Pools safari, you’ll get the chance to see over 350 bird species, aquatic wildlife, and of course, some majestic land creatures!
When you search for safaris in Africa, you are bound to come across the expensive options. After all, the most widespread misconception about safaris is that they are pricey and above most travelers’ budgets.
You’ve just arrived at the gate of the game reserve. The drive to the lodge already shows the magic of South Africa. A warthog here, an elephant there, and your child’s eyes light up with excitement and curiosity.
As the jeep makes its way on the dusty roads, suddenly it comes to a stop. The ranger motions you to stay quiet. The next second, he points to a bush where a family of lions is busy watching the zebras grazing nearby. All the while, there are also wildebeest and antelopes lurking by.
