Remote luxury at Ruckomechi in Mana Pools

Discover a legendary camp called Ruckomechi Camp in the magic of Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park – such a special place that evokes some of the most intense feelings you will ever experience in nature. Feel awed in the privileged company of pro guides on walking and canoe safaris at Ruckomechi. 

Whether it is peace, exhilaration or anticipation, the emotional ride will leave you rejuvenated and enlightened. Spend lazy afternoons sprawled in a hammock or escape to the comfort of your tented chalet where contemporary mod cons await. Ruckomechi rustic chic tented accommodation suits couples and families who favour an off the beaten track holiday in Africa but still appreciate large beds, hot showers and plenty of pampered privacy. 

Tastefully decorated, each of the 10 tented cabins boasts ethnic modern furnishings, large sleeping areas, welcoming indoor and outdoor showers and the main attraction being the bath with a view on the secluded banks of the Zambezi River where hippos grunt and birds fly. Relax here in a bubble bath after a long and exciting game drive then meet fellow guests on the main deck, the hub of this beautiful Ruckomechi safari camp in Mana Pools. 

Read a book in the library and sip a nightcap on a soft couch in the lounge area. All main areas are connected with neat wooden boardwalks facing the Zambezi escarpment. The swimming pool is a true highlight with honeymoon couples and children alike, an infinity-style plunge pool with a deck and chill out hammocks for the afternoon lull.

Open 4×4 vehicles, motorised pontoon boats, canoes and good old safari boots facilitate the wildlife viewing. Ruckomechi is open throughout the dry (winter) season when game viewing is rich and vegetation sparser. 

Located in the legendary Mana Pools National Park, Ruckomechi enjoys astounding views across the Zambezi to the towering escarpment on the Zambian side of the river. Albida trees provide both shade and seed pods that are beloved of elephants, meaning that these charismatic creatures are never far away.



Superior rustic Zimbabwe accommodation in the heavenly National Park of Mana Pools at the scintillating Ruckomechi Camp boasts exquisite river and escarpment views where wildlife is prevalent at all hours of the day. 

Find this unique tented getaway in the wilderness, on the western boundary of Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park in a private concession. The camp is tucked under an astonishing shady grove of Acacia and Mahogany trees right on the banks of the meandering Zambezi River. 

Picture superb panoramas of the mountains of Africa’s Great Rift Valley in the distance, where visitors are treated to a spectacular combination of charming beauty and exceptional game viewing.

Such terrific outdoor accommodation in Zimbabwe, Ruckomechi Camp sleeps 20 lucky guests in 10 fantastical tented chalets – including a romantic honeymoon suite. Cleverly designed with tasteful modern ethnic furnishings and décor, each room is like its own work of art. We love the space, the neat floors and ceilings, the private indoor and outdoor showers and the beautiful decks with views of the startlingly stunning wilderness beyond. 

The ingenious ‘bath-with-a-view’ hides in a sheltered, fairy tale spot on the banks of the Zambezi river where birds sing and dance. It’s time to relax in a bubble bath, with a glass of bubbly, and tune into self, and the biodiversity we all need to survive.

Meet fellow safari and wildlife lovers in the hub of Ruckomechi, the elegant lounge and dining areas, the large viewing and sundowner deck, the library and chill areas. Be alone or be with others, that doesn’t matter, it just matters that you chose this Zimbabwe camp in Mana Pools! Hammocks are the place to be, beside the infinity pool, after a fun morning out canoeing or game driving. 

Many travellers to Africa rate Mana Pools as the top and most gorgeous setting of all the National Parks on the continent. We tend to agree and what’s more, the game viewing is outstanding with all animals and birds, reptiles, insects and other critters being around just when you want to see them! 

Learn more about the conservation initiatives in this region to save the animals from human impacts. Enjoy the exclusive combination of water and land activities to get closer to these endangered creatures in a world that must remain intact. Try it all, day and night game drives, boating, canoeing, fishing and walking safaris.
