Zambezi Mana Pools Still more developments


After initial announcements from the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Authority that three or four new tourism development sites along the Zambezi River at Mana Pools were in the pipeline, against the  recommendations in the Management Plan for the Park recently negotiated with all stakeholders  there has been no further news.

 However, details are now emerging of one of these:  a new 24-30-bed safari lodge development proposal on the Zambezi River some 3kms downstream from the Park Headquarters at Nyamepi, and located at the existing Nkupe Camp Exclusive Campsite, overlooking the main river and the popular Mana Mouth visitor recreation spot

The Zambezi Society has informed Atta that they have met with the consultants who are tasked with preparing an EIA for this project and they have presented them with a list of their initial concerns about this.  They are now preparing a detailed Consultation Paper on this development proposal,  calling for feedback and comments from Zambezi Society Supporters worldwide, in order to be able to provide a more informed, detailed and considered response from their constituency.   

 The Zambezi Society is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation conserving the wildlife and wild places of the ZambeziRiverfor the benefit of wilderness, wildlife and people
