8. You can walk with lions

Lions abound at Mana Pools National Park, and for the truly brave (or stupid) this is the only national park in Africa that allows you to walk unguided among them should you choose. Another UNESCO World Heritage-listed site, the unfenced park is home to plenty of elephants, zebras, crocs, hippos and lions and you are allowed to exit your vehicle and walk without a guide (which we would not recommend). [UPDATE: As of May 2015, unguided walks are no longer allowed in Mana Pools.]
