The magic of Mana Pools


Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a RAMSAR site of international importance. However, besides these titles, there is a special magic that lives here that safari goers often describe as 'the magic of Mana'.


Perhaps it's the setting on the biodiversity-rich floodplains of the mighty Zambezi River. Or perhaps it's the opportunity for up close and personal walking and canoeing safaris – and the chance for those once-in-a-lifetime game sightings.


Whatever it is, we on the AG team were lucky enough to experience the 'magic of Mana' vicariously through some incredible entries into our Photographer of the Year 2017 competition. All of the images in this gallery were taken in Mana Pools, and for us, they convey that special magic that exists only there. The chance to see it and experience it in real life would indeed be magical.


Some of these incredible Mana images will be featured in our 2017 Yearbook .
