Thank you Manapools.com, thank you Ant. As in the title above, all perfect. Booking Mana Pools via ZimParks, only those know who tried it from oversees. Close to impossible. With Manapools.com and Ant's great help I managed to do it. Fast and without any problems. Ant helped me a lot also by answering some side questions, not necessary related to the business we did. Thank you. I will definitely use manapools.com again and strongly advise to get in touch with them in case of Zimbabwe planning. Mirek.
A world class end to end service
Ant and the Mana pools team are the best!
If you were to believe the headlines, you would be forgiven for thinking a self drive in zimbabwe was difficult, risky and expensive. However, thanks to Ant and his team, this couldn't be further from the truth. The whole trip couldn't have been easier to organise and we didn't experience the slightest hiccup throughout our two weeks at Mana pools.
Ant arranged everything for us from the car, to the park bookings and even our food. His level of customer service is high class. Every query or clarification was answered within hours and his huge wealth of knowledge and easy going manner made the whole planning process a joy.
The vehicle provided was in great condition and we didn't have a single issue with it despite everything we threw at it. Costa, the onsite manager, was a great guy who gave us clear instructions on all the gear and went the extra mile to transfer us across harare when our taxi fell through.
The vehicle comes with all the gear you need to survive in the bush. All this gear was user friendly and covered everything you would ever need.
We felt completely safe in Zim and as always the people were very warm and friendly.
I can't thank Ant and his team enough for everything and I have no doubt I will be organising round two very shortly
Excellent all-around experience with Mana 4 x 4, fully-equipped vehicle, clear & fast communication
We had an excellent all-around experience with Mana 4 x 4 & highly recommend them for anyone self-driving through Zimbabwe & camping!
Our family of 5 visited from America & were not able to bring our own camping equipment with us due to space in our luggage. So, what to do? Months earlier, prior to our trip, I found Mana 4 x 4 on Instagram & reached out because they offered the solution of fully-kitted out camping 4 x 4s.
Right from the beginning, communicating with Ant was a breeze. He was always quick to respond, professional & friendly.
When we arrived in Zim & went to pick up the vehicle, Costa ran through how everything works & got us all set up & ready to go. It was smooth sailing.
Their vehicles are fully-equipped with nearly everything needed for a camping trip, minus sleeping bags. The vehicle functioned perfectly, especially on that horribly corrugated & long Mana road, & we had no issues whatsoever.
Thank you to Ant, Costa & Mana 4 x 4 for a great all-around experience working with them to make our Mana Pools trip amazing!
Fantastic self-drive to Mana Pools, hassle free. Thank you Ant!!
From the start Ant was extremely helpful and always happy to answer any little queries I had. As the organiser of an all women and not regular camping group, using Mana Pools was the perfect choice. Their vehicle was well equipped, Ant's advise was great and when we hit an unforeseen snag Ant and his team stepped up and made sure our trip went on as if nothing had happened.
I would recommend a self-drive trip to Mana Pools for anyone who would love to see this amazing part of Zimbabwe. We picked up our vehicle in Vic Falls did a couple of nights in Hwange National Park, sailed Kariba Dam overnight on the Ferry, drove to Mana Pools and had a wonderful stay in this most magical area, ending in Harare and flying back to Cape Town. All in all a fabulous adventure. Thanks again Mana Pools Tourism Services
