Mana Pools

Browse listings

Located in the heart of the Zambezi Valley, you will find Mana River Camp (formerly Mwinilunga) is one of the most friendly and comfortable tented safari camps in Mana Pools.

The camp is under the new ownership of Machaba Safaris (well-known for their authentic safari camps in Botswana and Hwange National Park) but will continue to be managed by the family team of Dave McFarland and Tessa Arkwright, together with Roogs, their Downs’ Syndrome son and their dedicated staff. 

The camp is undergoing a re-design in 2020, and will consist of 6 twin en-suite tents and a central living/dining/bar area, nestled under some enormous Trichilia trees right on the banks of the Zambezi River.  Since there are no fences, Mana's wild animals can wander through at will.  

Mana River Camp (Mwinilunga) is best known for its delicious cuisine and friendly, family atmosphere.  

Activities offered include professionally-guided walking, game drives, birding, fishing, canoeing, photography and star gazing.

Tess, I know that I speak for our entire group when I say we absolutely loved our weekend with Dave and team in Trichelia Camp!!! We had a delightful time, enjoyed the fantastic food, great company and an outstanding staff. We were constantly amazed at the encyclopedic recall from Jim Mackie - we all came away with a new understanding and appreciation for the balance within the eco-system in Mana Pools. We also all agreed that we would love to return to your camp in a different season - soon - just to appreciate the changes in the foliage density! We were also struck by the quality and presentation of the meals - and we all want to approach Tess about her cook training classes, both for us individually and our domestic staffs. Again, thank you all for such a wonderful opportunity for us.
