Camp Mana

Camp Mana has a beautiful setting overlooking the floodplains of the Zambezi River in the heart of Mana Pools National Park.

Camp Mana is a small, intimate tented camp which offers the simplicity and close to nature feel of a mobile camp. The camp is owned and run by professional guide Steve Bolnick who heads up the guiding team and leads many of the walk. Steve is passionate about wildlife and conservation and is particularly keen on walking, which is a real focus from this camp. The camp location is beautiful with lovely open views of the Zambezi floodplain. Activities are always very informative and hospitality is wonderfully relaxed. Camp Mana is suited to those seeking a peaceful, exclusive, social and down to earth wilderness experience with plenty of walking. It is not suited for anyone seeking luxury.


The camp accommodates up to 12 guests at any one time, with a total of eight tents which can be set up with single, double or twin beds. The walk-in tents are spaced nicely apart…
