Safari Elegance at magical Mana Pools

Ruckomechi Camp offers a unique wilderness experience in Mana Pools National Park, situated along the picturesque banks of the Zambezi River. Accommodation here consists of ten spacious and beautifully decorated en-suite tents, including two family rooms, all nestled beneath the beloved ana trees, favored by local elephants for their nutritious seeds.

The camp’s location within a private concession ensures an exclusive safari encounter with diverse activities to explore Mana Pools. Wildlife enthusiasts can revel in the opportunity for frequent elephant sightings, as the camp’s vegetation is dominated by these majestic creatures’ beloved albida trees.

Wilderness Ruckomechi features ten guest tents connected to the main building through low-level walkways. These tents comprise seven twins, two doubles, and a two-bedroom family tent, all made from canvas with fine-mesh windows to keep insects out while allowing refreshing breezes. Each tent boasts a veranda with comfortable chairs overlooking the river.
