How do I book Mana Pools campsites?

All the public campsites at Mana Pools and Chitake Springs are booked through Zimparks central bookings office in Harare. The lodges and certain campsites book up over one year in advance for certain times of the year, so it is best to book as early as possible. The main Nyamepi campsite is seldom full though.
