Fly by light aircraft to your next destination, Mana Pools National Park and transfer by road to Ruckomechi Camp on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River. This camp has been a favourite with visitors to the breathtaking Mana Pools National Park for many years.

The central communal area includes a lounge, dining and bar area, with a sunken fire pit for convivial evenings.

Should you wish to spend your night sleeping beneath velvet African skies, a ‘star bed’ can be specially set up for you at nearby Parachute Pan, frequented by wildlife 24 hours a day.

Activities at Ruckomechi Camp are as diverse as the landscape surrounding the property, ranging from game drives through woodland and savanna in search of elephant, buffalo and lion to boat cruises and canoeing, taking in Mana Pools’ incredible birdlife and healthy hippo population. It’s also possible to explore Ruckomechi’s private concession after dark – special camera mounts on your vehicle help with low-light photography.
