5K African Wildlife Video – Mana Pools National Park – 2017 by Robert Hofmeyr

Mana Pools National Park is in Northern of Zimbabwe on the border of Zambia in the Zambezi Valley. The park is known for its profusion of wildlife and spectacular scenery. Mana means ‘four’ in Shona (one of the local languages). This refers to the four permanent pools that remain on the floodplain after the rains. These long pools are a remnant of the Zambezi river’s past meanderings, and attract large populations of elephants, buffalo, baboons, impala and other animals during the dry season. Predators and scavengers such as lions, hyena and wild dogs are frequently sighted in the area. Mana Pools is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of the few big game areas in Africa that guests are allowed to explore on foot.
