Ruckomechi Camp, Mana Pools, Zimbabwe

Ruckomechi Camp is a Classic Camp

The elephants' favourite camp - renewed

Situated on a large private concession in the heart of the Zambezi Valley’s Mana Pools National Park, Ruckomechi Camp looks out from the banks of the mighty Zambezi River. It is a remote, beautiful place with spectacular views of the broad flowing river, adjoining well-defined tree canopy and the mountains of the Rift Valley escarpment over the border in Zambia.

Shaded by a large grove of acacia and mahogany trees, the camp accommodates guests in ten spacious and beautifully decorated en-suite tents, including two family rooms, all of which overlook the river. The central dining, bar and lounge areas face the escarpment, and there is a separate pool deck swimming and sunbathing, and an inviting fire deck for convivial evenings under the African skies. A romantic star-bed situated nearby overlooking a productive waterhole completes the Ruckomechi experience.

Highlights

  • Excellent wildlife viewing in the concession and National Park, with hippo, buffalo and predators often sighted
  • A favourite amongst guests: an outdoor 'bath-with-a-view' in a secluded, scenic spot
  • The albida trees dotted through camp are beloved by elephants for their tasty pods
