In Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe, African Bush Camps offer visitors a riverside experience with Zambezi Expeditions and/or an inland safari experience on a private concession at Kanga Camp.

Set in the most remote part of the World Heritage Site in Mana Pools is the Kanga Pan.

Other activities include night drives and canoeing organised on request.
“Kanga under the Stars” is an outdoor wilderness sleeping experience for the more adventurous with a bedroom constructed in a purpose-built raised sleeping platform in a nearby riverbed.
Game abounds on the flood plains and in the Mopane woodlands of Mana Pools. Kanga Pan particularly attracts great game in big concentrations as it is the only water found in the floodplain above the river. The predators, including lion, wild dog and leopard are often sighted and large concentrations of buffalo can be found in the Mopane woodland and open plains studded with Ilala Palms. Kudu, zebra, impala and waterbuck can be seen on the surrounding plains. Elephant take advantage of the plentiful albida trees (Faidherbia albida – more commonly known as the Ana Tree or Winter Thorn) in the area. Bird watching is also a great attraction.
