Lodge Description

John's Camp
Mana Pools National Park is situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River where you will find John's Camp nestled amongst canopies of Trichelia and Mahogany trees, it is a truly natural wilderness. Across the vast floodplain one can walk with the giants - our African Bull elephants, dine amidst herds of buffalo, gaze upon prides of lion, enjoy sundowners with hippos on the banks of the Zambezi River and bird watch over 400 species of birds.

The camp comprises of 12 beds, made up of 6 twin or double en-suite Meru style tents, a common dining area and a star gazing sleep-out platform for the more adventurous safari traveller.

The Camp
6 Meru style canvas tents under a double fly sheet make up the compliment of 12 beds. Each tent has en-suite bathroom facilities with flush loo and overhanging safari-style bucket showers. Inside the tent is a lit changing area complete with a running water basin. With privacy in mind, the tents are generously spaced out along the floodplain adjacent to the Zambezi River. The dining area is centrally located between the tents, positioned in thick shade, and there is a campfire overlooking the floodplain for evening cocktails and snacks before dinner.

Game drives
All conducted from Toyota Landcruisers, 9 seater bench arrangements on a 3 tier frame with an overhead shade for comfort, a ‘window’ seat (i.e. two people per row) for everyone.

All walks are lead by professional, armed and licensed Guides who are passionate and knowledgeable. Fly/Platform Night
Guests can be truly wowed with a night under the stars sleeping in a 'mozzi dome' tent, away from the main camp, or spending the night under the wild and magical African skies on our fully furnished star-deck.

Bush lunch
Enjoy a delicious meal prepared in the main camp and set up in a remote and beautiful part of the park, overlooking either the Zambezi River, one of the many inland pans, a gully or the majestic floodplain itself.

Land based fishing. Catch a variety of species from the great African Tiger Fish to the tasty Tilapia (bream).
All Tiger are strictly catch and release and we have a bag limit of 5 Tilapia per day.

Parks Office and Village Tour
We can arrange a private tour of the National Park Headquarters where guests can interact with the rangers who work tirelessly to protect and maintain not only wildlife, but also the park itself. Here guests will witness first-hand a remote Parks station working in harmony with nature.
