    Hi Jacques, There are hunting areas surrounding the Mana pools area. They were originally set aside as citizen hunting areas, but a lot of SA operators buy the quotas and take their clients in there. As a Zimbo that doesn't sit well with me but corruption being what it is, it is done. Some nice trophies come out of there very year but no real exceptional jumbo...they are mostly Hwange NP side. It is a good Buff area. The Lion there are very forward and people are killed there from time to time in the camps.
    We also use the Chimutsi dam site as the base for the proficiency exams held at the beginning of Oct each year.
    Mana is an awesome place and there are people trying to develop the area with hotels etc and there is strong lobbying against that! It really is a last frontier of wilderness!
