Ruckomechi Camp, Mana Pools

The “elephant’s favorite camp” is beautiful remote canvas camp set on the banks of the colossal Zambezi River in the heart of one of the most breath-taking wilderness range Africa has to offer. Mana Pools National Park is home to a vast array of wildlife and the Ruckomechi Camp host intimate game excursions both on the river and on land. This gorgeous ten en-suite camp is the perfect place to relax and embark on remarkable safari trips.


Ruckomechi Camp is positioned just over an hour flight by light aircraft from the Zimbabwean capital of Harare. Nestled in the gorgeous Mana Pools National Park on the banks of the Zambezi River; Ruckomenchi Camp’s location is second to none with an fantastic range of game and immense views in every direction.

Your room

Your canvas suite boasts indoor and outdoor showers heated by solar geysers, stunning views across the Zambezi River and is sheltered by a large grove of acacia and rich mahogany trees. The striking interior glows a comfortable wealth of gold that stretches out to your private deck in the Rift Valley. Take a dip in the infinity pool and observe local game before strolling back to the luxuries of your intimate tent.

Why we like it

The luxury and location of Ruckomechi Camp combine perfectly to create an extremely sensual ambience. It’s usual to find elephants standing under the shades of trees in the camp throughout the day which is an experience you won’t find anywhere else; and if the elephants aren’t on your doorstep, the guides will track them down along with a great number of other animals by riverboat or land.
