Mana Pools - the home of Zimbabwe's elephants
Mana Pools National Park is a unique park where the wild beauty, paired with a diverse range of wildlife, has made it a popular destination for tourists. It is easy to see why this park became a UNESCO world heritage site. Home to the mighty Zambezi River, this large area has no physical boundaries so animals are free to roam throughout the Zambezi Valley and across the river into Zambia. The area requires continuous monitoring and patrols to control poaching activities, which in turn requires a great deal of financial support.

Across Africa, elephants have inspired respect from the people that share the landscape with them, giving them a strong cultural significance.
Centuries ago, there were millions of elephants in herds that roamed the African continent. In the current dire situation, the elephant population is now estimated to be just under 600,000 elephants total and in the Mana Pools/Zambezi Valley, only 3,000 elephants are left. The African Elephant is now an endangered species in Africa and we all need to work together to help save this beautiful, family orientated animal from extinction.
