Experience & Activities  

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, especially known for its delicious cuisine. Providing a warm family atmosphere of home away from home, the camp is owned and managed by Machaba Safaris – and their amazingly dedicated team. The camp offers a comfortable, homely and authentic safari experience where guests are welcomed with warmth and pleasure.

The beauty of this camp is that it is a mobile tented camp known as a TEC – Temporary Extended Camp. The whole camp is taken down at the end of each season, before the wet season begins. This gives the feeling of the old, real bush, camping experience. The camp is unfenced and many different animals may be viewed from the camp, whilst enjoying the tranquil atmosphere. Common visitors into camp are elephants – these giant pachyderms seem to want to introduce themselves to guests!

Being part of the Machaba Family, there is the great benefit of having the permanent sister camp, Ingwe Pan, based further inland at the Ingwe Pan in Mana Pools.

Guests can enjoy morning and late afternoon game drives, and morning and/or late afternoon game walks with experienced Zimbabwean guides (who are highly regarded due to Zimbabwe’s stringent examination procedure), canoeing on request, and shoreline fishing on a catch and release basis (fishing equipment required).


There are 6 tents in camp. Each tent is a 3-module Sahara canvas and gauze tent, with zipped entrances, and all have views of the Zambezi River, with a veranda and a folding chair. The sleeping area has twin single beds which can be converted to king-size on request, hotel quality linen and towels, and bedside tables. There is a table with a thermos of cold drinking water and glasses. The bathroom area has a flushing toilet, hot and cold shower, heated with chip boilers. There is a mirrored vanity with a porcelain basin and cold running water.
