Mana means “four” in Shona, referring to the 4 large permanent pools which were formed by the meanders of the Zambezi. These areas are flanked by forests of wild figs, ebonies and baobabs. The biggest population of hippopotami and crocodiles are found here. Threatened species such as Lion, cheetah and Wild dog also make their homes here.
This large almost completely undeveloped area was saved from a hydro electric scheme in the early 80s which would have seen this beautiful area flooded.
