Introducing Northern Zimbabwe
Often overlooked by independent foreign travellers without their own transport, the major attractions in this part of the country are Lake Kariba and Mana Pools National Park.
Mana Pools National Park
This magnificent 2200-sq-km national park is a Unesco World Heritage–listed site, and its magic stems from its remoteness and pervading sense of the wild and natural. This is one park in Zimbabwe where you’re guaranteed to see plenty of hippos, crocs, zebras and elephants, and almost guaranteed to see lions and possibly wild (painted) dogs.
