Ruckomechi Camp

Situated on the western boundary of Mana Pools National Park, Ruckomechi Camp is a naturalist's paradise. The mystical Zambezi River forms the northern border of the area with a wide variety of habitats evident - open floodplains, mopane woodland and riverine forest with the mountains of the Rift Valley escarpment forming the backdrop in neighbouring Zambia.


    Ruckomechi Camp accommodates guests in ten spacious en-suite tented units, including a honeymoon suite, all of which overlook the Zambezi River. Each tent has both indoor and outdoor showers, and the camp boasts a favourite amongst guests: its outdoor 'bath-with-a-view' in a secluded, scenic spot. Ruckomechi Camp has aimed to be as environmentally friendly as possible - hot water and lighting for each unit is provided by solar power.

        Ruckomechi Camp Restaurants

        The central dining, bar, library and lounge areas face the escarpment and are connected to the rest of the camp by low-level walkways that minimise our environmental impact. There is a separate deck with infinity pool for swimming and sun bathing, and an inviting, cushion-strewn star gazing deck.
