Elephants of Mana Pools

Mana Pools National Park is renowned for its majestic elephants, which are an iconic symbol of the park. The elephants of Mana Pools are known for their impressive size, intelligence, and unique behaviors. They roam freely throughout the floodplains and woodlands, often congregating near the Zambezi River, creating incredible opportunities for close encounters and observation. Mana Pools is considered one of the best places in Africa to witness and appreciate the beauty and grandeur of these magnificent creatures.

While elephants in general do not typically stand on their hind legs, there have been occasional observations of elephants in Mana Pools National Park exhibiting this behavior to reach high branches or fruits. Standing on their hind legs allows them to extend their reach and access food sources that would otherwise be out of their reach. This behavior is a testament to the remarkable adaptability and intelligence of these incredible animals. However, it’s important to note that this behavior is not commonly observed and is more of a rare occurrence in specific situations where there is a compelling need to access high vegetation.
