Why stay here?

Ruckomechi Camp, situated in a private concession with access to the western areas of Mana Pools National Park, accommodates guests in ten spacious en-suite tented units, including two family units, all of which overlook the wide Zambezi River. The camp is set amongst broad-canopied ana trees, much loved by the elephants for their rich nutritious seeds. A favourite amongst guests, the camp also boasts an outdoor “bath with a view” in a secluded, scenic spot.

The central dining, bar and lounge areas face the majestic, evocative escarpment across the river in Zambia. There is a separate area with a pool and sun loungers for swimming and sunbathing, and an inviting fire deck for convivial evenings under the starry skies. Wildlife viewing takes place in open 4x4 vehicles, on foot, on motorised pontoon boats or on canoes. A Star Bed is situated nearby.

NOTE: Ruckomechi is open seasonally between April and mid/late November each year.
