Mana Pools is probably my favourite place in the world.
Nyamatusi Mahogany really do this stunning place justice.
We went as a family of 4 with kids aged 7 and 10. Both us and the kids were treated like family/royalty.
Nyamatusi is split in 2 with Mahogany being child friendly - way beyond friendly really.
The lodge setting is perfect, great views over the river floodplain with game a constant in camp and on the plain.
Activities were varied, not just game drives, and every one was as close to perfection as I have ever had.
We were guided by Nick who had a wealth of experience and knowledge but more that this he was amazing with the kids. Joyce hosted us and again nothing was too much for her. All the staff, Witness, Princess, Pamela and all the others made us so welcome and took a real interest in us - fantastic service and just made the stay perfect.
The wildlife was fantastic, great sightings every day, but for me Mana is about the landscape and the 'feel' and this can't be beaten.
I can't rate this highly enough, my kids cried as we left and I might have had a bit of dust in my eye too.
This was a trip for my 50th and made my year.More
