Downstream from its big sister camp, intimate Little Ruckomechi features just three very handsome tented suites nestled beneath grand albida trees – ideal for a small group or family. Inside each unit is a romantic canopied bed, plenty of comfortable seating as well as an ensuite bathroom. Shared spaces at this cosy safari camp include a dining area, lounge and plunge pool featuring views over the river and scenic Zambian foothills.
Little Ruckomechi’s privileged location within a private concession in the stunning Mana Pools National Park allows guests to participate in a wide range of activities not normally allowed in public reserves. Enjoy the region’s breathtaking beauty and impressive diversity on foot led by an experienced guide and take relaxing boat cruises to admire the sunset and huge pods of wallowing hippo. Of course, it’s also possible to go on traditional game drives in open 4X4 vehicles.
Should you wish to dine outdoors, staff at Little Ruckomechi Camp will happily arrange a picnic for you. Other unique experiences that can be enjoyed in the Mana Pools area include catch-and-release tiger fishing as well as canoeing – an exhilarating way to travel the sparkling channels common throughout the area and approach birds and animals up close with minimal disturbance.
