Mana Pools National Park remains one of the last truly remote destinations in Southern Africa.  Named after the many pools and lagoons within the park and home to pods of hippos.  The park sits on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River where you can expect to see huge herds of elephant and buffalo come down to drink from its cool waters.


Ruckomechi is an stunning camp of just ten stunning guest tents each with a breath-taking view of the Zambezi River and set amongst ana trees that are popular with elephants. The camp’s unique ‘bath with a view’ and ‘Star Bed’ located a short distance away from camp are an absolute must for a guest staying at this breath-taking camp.



Ruckomechi boasts ten luxury tents, including two family tents, each with twin or king size beds draped with mosquito netting, indoor lounge area with luxurious soft furnishings and tea & coffee making facilities.  The en-suite facilities include an indoor shower, double vanities and separate w.c.


Step out and enjoy your magical view of the Zambezi River from your private wooden veranda.



The facilities on offer at Ruckomechi include a sparkling pool, idea for cooling off during the lazy afternoons, surrounding by a wooden deck with loungers.  A raised guest lounge and dining area and bar.


The camp also has a romantic ‘bath with a view’ in a secluded spot overlooking the Zambezi River and a ‘Star Bed’ located a short distance from camp.



Activities available to guests at Ruckomechi include exploring the wild bush of Mana Pools National Park in the experienced hands of highly qualified guides.  Twice daily game drives are conducted in the early morning and afternoon when it’s cooler and the predators are most active. Try a bush walk, where your guide will point out the smaller things within the park such as animal spoor, unique plants and trees along with the numerous birds that call this park home.


Take to the lower Zambezi water for a gentle kayak, this will give you a whole new perspective of the area or a stunning boat cruise to watch the beautiful African sun set for another day.
