Mana Pools Photo Safari

Mana Pools Photo Safari is situated in  a 219,600 ha wildlife conservation area in northern Zimbabwe. It is a region of the lower Zambezi River Valley where the flood plain turns into a broad expanse of lakes after each rainy season. As the lakes gradually dry up and recede, the region attracts many large animals in search of water, making it one of Africa‘s most renowned game-viewing regions.

A true wilderness experience in one of the most incredible wild places you will ever visit in Southern Africa. While we aim to provide an unforgettable up close and personal experience with excellent photographic opportunities, this will only be done without intentionally interfering with or disturbing wildlife.

With our incredible friend, Steve Bolnick and his team at CAMP MANA, on this amazing safari, we facilitate a genuine immersive wilderness experience while having a minimal impact on the environment. You will go on personal journey of discovery within yourself and the magic of Mana Pools.

The photographic opportunities while being on foot, be in the presence of the animals at ground level with help you experience a new sensory creative opportunity.

Our tour leader, Andrew Aveley has personally visisted this camp and all the images you see are his. He will be uniqely positioned  to give you the best knowlege and advice for your photography in Mana Pools
