Tent Exterior Ruckomechi Camp

Ruckomechi Safari Camp

An elegant and modern tented camp in the heart of Mana Pools

World-class game viewing by vehicle and boat

With stunning views over the surrounding river, mountains and woodland, Ruckomechi blends into the surroundings to make you feel closer to nature.

In the heart of Mana Pool’s National Park, on the banks of the world-famous Zambezi River lies Ruckomechi Camp. It enjoys stunning views over the surrounding river, mountains and woodland, and due to the remote location, has an abundance of wildlife living nearby. Environmentally friendly, Ruckomechi makes every effort to keep its carbon footprint as light as possible, supplying hot water and electricity via solar power. The camp can be accessed by light aircraft - the closest airstrip is Mana West and is about 20 minutes from the camp.

Accommodation comprises ten tented chalets, two of which are specially designed as honeymoon suites whilst one serves as a family suite. Each room is spacious and contains comfortable beds, an en-suite bathroom and a private veranda. Canvas flaps separate the veranda and bathroom from the main living area. The family suite contains an extra bedroom and an extra toilet. The main areas, built out of canvas and locally sourced materials in order to blend in with the surroundings, include a lounge, a library and a bar area, whereas the dining area is on an outdoor platform. There is also an infinity pool with sun loungers.

The camp’s private concession offers wonderful game viewing opportunities from both vehicles and boats. Normal game drives at Ruckomechi do not enter the main area of Mana Pools National Park. If you wish to do this, you will need to arrange the hire of a private vehicle from camp at additional cost. Half day canoe trips on the Zambezi are available, or, alternatively, you can bring your fishing equipment and see what you can catch. Ruckomechi also offers the opportunity to sleep out under the African sky on the camp’s star bed.
