Ruckomechi Camp, Mana Pools, Zimbabwe

Ruckomechi Camp is a Classic Camp

The elephants' favourite camp

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 en-suite tents, including a honeymoon suite, all of which overlook the river. Each beautifully decorated tent has both indoor and outdoor showers, heated by solar geysers. The central dining, bar, library and lounge areas face the escarpment, and there is a separate deck with an infinity pool for swimming and sunbathing, and an inviting, cushion-strewn star gazing deck.

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
