Ruckomechi Camp, Mana Pools, Zimbabwe

Ruckomechi Camp is a Classic Camp

4Cs Projects at Ruckomechi Camp

Our conservation initiatives in Zimbabwe have been tailored to address the most pressing threats to the survival of wildlife with fruitful partnerships and encouraging successes very evident. Our concession in Mana Pools National Park is no exception.


Green Operating Systems

Ruckomechi is powered by a hybrid system, combining a diesel powered generator that charges a bank of batteries which in turn supplies the camp with electricity through an inverter. Thanks to this, the generator only needs to operate for eight hours a day as opposed to 24 hours. In addition, each guest tent has solar-powered geyser providing hot water.

Painted Dog Conservation Project

Data collection in Mana Pools aids this project, which looks at the population status of wild dog in Zimbabwe as well as the human-wild dog conflict. It aims to protect and increase the range and number of wild dog through research, education and community involvement.

Cheetah Conservation Project Zimbabwe

Ruckomechi assists in collecting data for this project, which is carrying out population surveys to find out where cheetah occur, their population sizes and the challenges they face in Zimbabwe.
