Mana River Camp


Eco-friendly, comfortable camp

Located in the heart of the Zambezi River, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will find Mana River Camp – one of the most friendly and comfortable safari camps in the country.

Providing a warm family atmosphere of home away from home, Mana River Camp is owned and managed by Machaba Safaris - and their amazingly dedicated team. The camps offer a comfortable, homely and authentic safari experience where guests are welcomed with warmth and pleasure.

Mana River Camp on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River offers spectacular elephant sightings. It is a mobile tented camp that is taken down at the end of each season, before the rains begin – creating the feeling of an old, real bush, camping experience. The Camp has six en-suite canvas and gauze tents, with zipped entrances. All the tents have a view of the Zambezi River, with a veranda and a folding chair. The bathrooms have flushing toilets and hot and cold showers, heated with chip boilers. The tent is powered with inverter and solar lighting system. In the main area of the camp there is an open-air dining / communal area and a fire-pit boma.
