Sunday somewhere: Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe



Mana Pools National Park, Sapi and Chewore Safari Areas are all World Heritage Sites. They are wildlife conservation areas in northern Zimbabwe. It is a region of the lower Zambezi River where the flood plain turns into lakes after each rainy season.

A remarkable amount and variety of wild animals arrive in search of water each year making it one of Africa's most renowned game-viewing regions.  The annual assembly of animals, which includes elephants, zebras, buffalo, leopards, crocodiles, aquatic birds and cheetahs, constitutes one of Africa's outstanding wildlife shows.  The cliffs hanging over the river and flood plains provide shelter to the wildlife thriving in this remote wilderness.
Mana Pools National Park was saved from a hydro-electric scheme which would have seen the flooding of this whole area.
