Amazing Mana Pools Safari with Khangela

Me and my mother did 6 nights Mana Pools and Chitake Springs safari in late October 2023 with guide Michael Scott, Khangela safaris. It was an incredible experience for us, which me and my mom will value forever. To be in the wilderness at amazing campsites, comfortable walk-in tents with cots and in suite loo-shower was experience in itself.
We saw what there was to be seen, including lions, dogs, hyenas, elephants, antelopes and other wildlife around the tents by the Zambezi River. Food and drinks were good, prepared by Bernard and helped by Michael and Sedda. There was sufficient variety of food and drinks.
Guiding was good too; Michael is a very pleasant person to talk to and have long conversations. We felt sad while leaving, hopefully we can have a similar experience in future.

Mike Scott is as experienced and skilled a guide as you could hope for.

We took an "adventure tour" with Mike, Bernard and Memba and stayed in Mana, Matobo and Hwange National Parks. We saw remote and incredibly beautiful areas in each park, hiking daily, had great wildlife sightings and ... ate copiously of great "home cooking". If you want to stay on a comfortable cot in a tent where you can experience all the incredible sights and sounds of an African night, this is the trip for you. THANK YOU Mike and team for an unforgettable adventure!

Incredible stay in Mana Pools

I spent five nights in Mana Pools with Mike Scott and the Khangela team, and was blown away with both the wildlife and how well the trip was executed. We spent two nights in Chitake Springs, where we had excellent views of lion and elephant on foot, as well as a wild dog kill near camp during the night. We then spent three nights at the waterfront on the border with Zambia - the setting for this camp was stunning - where we were lucky enough to encounter the famous Mana Pools dogs on foot, as well as the famous Boswell.
Mike is an excellent guide, who was highly responsive to the demands of a group who had plenty of experience in Africa. He put real effort into finding the dogs, as this was very much at the top of our wish list. Mike is highly knowledgeable and conscientious, going out of his way to respond to my queries before the trip and being thoroughly accommodating throughout my stay. A huge shout out must also go to Bernard, whose tracking skills are unparalleled, and Mickey, who catered for us expertly. I'm already planning a further trip with Khangela in future - the cheetah of Hwangwe and rhino of Matobo are next on the list!

Unforgettable experience

My girlfriend and I recently spent 10 days in Mana Pools (5 nights river camp, 4 nights Chitake Spring) with Khangela Safaris and it was absolutely incredible. Mike and Bernard were a brilliant team who’ve known each other for decades, helped in camp by Bernard’s brother Memba. Their knowledge of the animal and plant life was amazing and our experience was also helped enormously by their superb tracking ability, once they had picked up a track we would end up with a brilliant sighting 9 times out of 10. We saw lions 6 times, a leopard, wild dogs with 9 puppies, hyenas, buffalo, elephants, hippos, zebras to name just a few. They were very warm and friendly and helped prepare us great food at meal times (we’re both vegan and they were a great help). We will miss getting up at sunrise for our morning walks, mid-day drives, evening walks, Mike and Bernard’s stories round the fire at night, hyenas and elephants walking through camp while we eat and lying in our tent listening to the sounds of the bush at night.

It was truly an incredible experience and without doubt would recommend Khangela Safaris to anyone, we would love to return.

Beyond outstanding!

We have just returned from an incredible trip to Mana Pools with Khangela Safaris, made all the more enjoyable due to the professionalism and expert knowledge of Mike Scott, our guide and his tracker Bernard. The camps were more than comfortable, hot showers provided every day, delicious meals (provision made for Vegans and Vegetarians). Evenings under the amazing night skies were enhanced by Mike's many stories, as well as visitations by hyena and ellies very close to camp. Both Mike and Bernard were excellent trackers which enabled us to see lions on foot on several occasions. However, just staying in the camp provided us all with many amazing sightings of wild dog, buffalo plus large numbers of baboons, who kept us all entertained by their antics . Mike's knowledge of birds and trees was beyond impressive, which augmented the enjoyment of each and every remarkable day we had in this very special place. Beyond amazing!
