Mana Pools Camping


Self Catering Camping

Remember to bring all your provisions and camping equipment with you, the only things provided are ablution blocks with hot and cold water, and braai facilities.

There are a number of camping sites within Mana Pools National Park, where you can experience being right in the middle of wildlife and nature.

The Nyamepi camping area is a large communal camping site, in total it has 30 sites and is situated along the Zambezi River. Campers need to bring all their own camping equipment, there is ablution blocks with hot and cold water, as well as a braai area. Firewood is available at the Mana Pools Reception office which is not far from the camping ground.

For people who want to get away from it all there are some exclusive camps also found along the Zambezi River, namely Mucheni, Nkupe, Ndungu, New Ngundu and Gwaya. The only facilities available at these camps are a braai stand at each site and a toilet, water has to be collected from the office or the river. These camps take a maximum of twelve people and two vehicles per stay.

Another option available is to try out the wild exclusive camps called Chitake Camp 1 (Nzou) and Chitake Camp 2 (Shumba). These two camps are found in the southern part of the Park close to Chitake Spring close to the bottom of the Zambezi Escarpment. Visitors check-in for these camps at the Nyakasikana Gate. No facilities at all are provided at these camps, and only four-wheel-drive vehicles can access these campsites.

Enjoy relaxing and watching the game which is plentiful in the park, or take part in the many activities on offer such as fishing, lion tracking, and canoeing.
