WE WELCOME CAMP MANA TO THE PORTFOLIO
Camp Mana is an owner run, intimate, 12-bed tented camp, operating annually from April through to November. From its magnificent location in Mana Pools National Park the camp overlooks a fertile floodplain leading onto the Zambezi River. Renowned for its mystical light, romantic sunsets, large numbers of elephants, buffalo and especially painted dogs, this is undoubtedly the best destination to experience the original walking and canoe safari.
At Camp Mana, we want you to be comfortable, well-fed and to enjoy your stay. Beyond these basic creature comforts we aim to reawaken your senses – unencumbered, free of modern-day technology or pressures.
The emphasis is on truly experiencing and understanding this wilderness, rather than consuming it. By keeping light and noise pollution to an absolute minimum in camp, guests marvel at the constant visits of elephants, zebra, waterbuck, buffalo and other species. From the communal lounge and dining mess, our guests quietly witness the daily routines of the African wilderness at its own pace.
Camp Mana’s “Touch the Earth Lightly” approach is evident throughout. The camp is almost entirely run on solar power. Showers and toilets are manually filled to avoid wasting water. The camp is void of permanent structures. It is entirely disassembled and removed annually before the rains and resurrected the following April, so allowing the site 4 months of recovery.
We look forward to telling you more about Camp Mana.
