Set amongst the iconic albida trees, Little Ruckomechi epitomises the verdant Mana Pools National Park. Located within a private concession along the Zambezi River, the camp sets the scene for an exclusive, authentic safari experience. Three en-suite luxury tents reminiscent of a bygone era provide elegant, yet comfortable spaces in which to relax between adventures. The camp is open seasonally between May and November each year.
The camp is all about the intimacy of being close to nature and amongst the iconic albida trees that characterise the area. The camp’s location within our private Ruckomechi Concession ensures an exclusive and authentic safari experience complete with a diverse range of activities through which to explore Mana, one of the great wildlife areas of Africa.
Built on wooden decks – offering three (or four for private bookings) – the handsome en-suite tents are airy and elegant; a reminder of the by-gone explorer era. The stylish living spaces include a dining room and lounge as well as a plunge pool all looking out over the great Zambezi River and the Zambian foothills in the distance.
Discover the wildlife-rich Mana Pools National Park on informative game drives with your guides. All drives take place on sturdy 4X4 vehicles with either a scenic coffee or sunset break spot depending on the time of day. Complete your safari adventure by setting out on a guided walk accompanied by professional guides.
Cruise down the expansive Zambezi River and witness the wildlife who call its banks home. Ideal for adventurous guests, canoes are also available for a more up-close and personal experience. This is an ideal way to see the area’s large number of waterbirds.
Try your hand at some catch-and-release fishing during your time at Little Ruckomechi. All fishing fanatics are encouraged to bring their own equipment as the camp only carries basic tackle. Some of the most common fish in the area include bream, barbel and tigerfish.
