Mana Pools Tented Camp Game Viewing and Activities

Most days typically begin with tea or coffee, rusks and porridge around the fire at sunrise. Soon after, guests will leave for the morning’s walk with Stretch. This will vary in time and distance, depending on the animals around. It may involve tracking lions or the wild-dog, watching an elephant bull, following a herd of buffalo. On return to the camp, a full breakfast is served, after which guests may relax however they choose before a light luch is served. Thereafter, Stretch will discuss options for the afternoon activity. These may involve a game drives, a canoe trip or another walk. Please note that these activities are very flexible and are often decided in an instant depending on which animals are in the vicinity. Drinks at sunset on the rivers edge are a perfect way to end the day before returning to camp for a hot shower. Dinner is a 3 course meal accompanied by wine, served in the open-air boma. Some days may involve full day picnics to the wilderness area or Chitake. Fishing is also always an option but it is recommended that keen fishermen bring their own equipment.
