What can I say? View is beautiful if you are ready to pay more than 100 US dollars (twice the price of campsites at the back) for a campsite that doesn't have basic infrastructure such as a good shower, decent toilets and an equipped spot to wash your dishes. The guy at the reception (a few kilometers away) chooses your...

Mana Pools is one of the most beautiful National Parks in Africa and Nyamepi camp a location you will always remember. You sleep in small tents on small beds - but what a starring sky! You fall asleep with the sounds of the wilderness in your ears. The staff is not only friendly, you feel welcome and secure and have...

Please don't go camping at Mana Pools because you'll have a terrible time getting back into the real world. I would hate for you to experience such trauma as not being able to have this back when you get home:hear elephants trumpet for its mate right next to your trailer; witness a pride of 15 lions including 4 cubs; starting...

Position, position, position! No 20 is the sought-after campsite and we had it! With a large, ancient Wild Fig tree offering us shade we made camp just beyond the branches’ reach, where the early morning rays would be our alarm clock and at night the Hippos calling would send us off to dreamland. I could put my hand out and...

This has been our 4th Consecutive annual trip to this world's best game reserve.This time we stayed at "Nyamepi camp site 13" 1-5 Oct 2015. The rough road made us feel like we are in real jungle, (though i saw some guys driving very small cars). If you need to move around from the camp site you definitely need a...

Stayed at campsite number two, right by the river. Incredible experience in a most beautiful spot. Facilities minimal, but ablution block clean and firewood available from main office nearby. Long drive over fairly corrugated roads - would be feasible without 4x4, but I'm definitely glad we had it, together with extra fuel. Heard all sorts of stories about not taking...

We camped here for two nights. This camp site situated on the banks of the Lower Zambezi River, brings you up close and personal with the wild life in Mana pools national park. We stayed in a compact tent for two that afforded views of the star spangled night sky whilst lying in our camp bed listening to the many...

Stayed here as part of a 15 day tour of Zimbabwe. Looking at the stars from my tent and listening to the abundant wildlife throughout the night was wonderful. Setting was glorious with magnificent sunrise and sunsets. Lots of Hippos to watch. Game drives delivered views of wildlife after wildlife- mammals and birdlife. Viewed lions mating, many elephants, hippos, etc,etc,etc....

We stayed for only one night as part of a canoe safari so we can't really comment on cost etc as it was part of a package. The site itself is in a lovely location overlooking the Zambezi. We arrived to see herds of Impala grazing and a large elephant eating nearby, quite surreal. Our pitch was ok, quite close...

Be prepared for the road into Mana Pools which is real bone shaking, teeth rattling stuff. However once there at Nyamepi camp, camping under huge Natal Mahogany trees overlooking the magnificent Zambezi, its great. A big improvement on the ablution block, which has been upgraded and is not bad at all. Plenty of wild life wondering thru the camp and...
