Ruckomechi Camp, Mana Pools, Zimbabwe

Little Ruckomechi is a Classic Camp

Things to do at Little Ruckomechi

Situated on the western boundary of the iconic Mana Pools National Park, Little Ruckomechi is a photographer’s paradise, whether in a vehicle, on a boat or on foot.

Game Drives

Game drives early in the morning or late afternoon take place in open 4X4 vehicles, taking in a coffee break or a sundowner at a scenic spot. Given the diversity of habitats in the area, a wide variety of wildlife may be seen. Night drives are also available; a red-filtered spotlight is used to ensure disturbance of the game is kept to a minimum. (Note: Game drives take place within our private concession and not in the National Park.)

Fantastic Birding

The multiplicity of birdlife in the area includes three-banded courser, western banded snake-eagle, Arnot's chat, green-capped eremomela, African golden oriole, Lilian’s lovebird, Böhm's spinetail and Meve's starling.

River Cruises

Cruises down this stretch of the Zambezi River take in the life in, on and around this iconic river. Canoes are a more adventurous option to see the large numbers of waterbirds and other wildlife that are attracted to the river and seasonal pans.

Nature Walks

Mana Pools National Park is a remote, beautiful place that is best experienced on foot, led by a professional guide. This thrilling way of exploring the surrounding bush often heralds many exciting sightings.

Catch-and-release fishing*

Bream (tilapia), barbel (catfish) and tigerfish are the some of the more common fish found at Mana Pools. Catch and release is practised at all Wilderness Safaris camps and keen fishermen are always encouraged to bring their own equipment as we only carry basic fishing tackle. *This activity is subject to the availability of boats and is at an additional cost, per boat per hour payable direct.

As recommended on TripAdvisor

“ Great sightings on all game drives and couldn't beat the view out of my tent for elephants, hippos, and antelope at the Zambezi. ”
