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, and are connected to the rest of camp by low-level walkways. 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 4×4 vehicles, on foot, on motorised pontoon boats or on canoes. A sleep out situated nearby, overlooking a productive waterhole completes the Ruckomechi experience. NOTE: Ruckomechi is open seasonally between April and mid/late November each year.Unique Selling PointsThe only private concession in Mana PoolsWell-situated camp scenically and wildlife-wise: elephant herds and other game seen daily within the camp confinesOutstanding dry-season wildlife concentrations
