Ruckomechi Camp, Mana Pools, Zimbabwe

Ruckomechi Camp is a Classic Camp

The elephants' favourite camp

Ruckomechi Camp accommodates guests in ten spacious en-suite tents, including a honeymoon suite, all of which overlook the Zambezi River. Each tent has both indoor and outdoor showers. The central dining, bar, library and lounge areas face the escarpment; our environmental impact is lowered by low-level walkways and solar power for the whole camp. There is a separate deck with an infinity pool for swimming and sunbathing, and an inviting, cushion-strewn star gazing deck.

Highlights

  • Superb views of the mountains of Africa's Great Rift Valley across the river in Zambia.
  • A favourite amongst guests: an outdoor 'bath-with-a-view' in a secluded, scenic spot.
  • The albida trees dotted through camp are much loved by elephants for their tasty pods.
