Tucked away on Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park, along the winding course of the Zambezi River, Ruckomechi Camp is the perfect spot for both safari-newbies and seasoned travellers who’d like to experience the area’s rich wildlife in a secluded setting. If thrilling wildlife encounters with a liberal serving of natural splendour is what you’re after, this is the place for you.
Mana Pools is a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site - and with good reason. In the dry season, animals flock en masse to the banks of these four oxbow pools to quench their thirst, making for one of the most thrilling game-viewing experiences in Africa. Hippo, crocodile, buffalo, and more are well represented here. Bonus: you even stand the chance of spotting elephants at your camp!
The camp consist of 10 En-Suite Tents (including a Honeymoon Suite for newlyweds!) overlooking the Zambezi River that flows toward to Mozambique. Each tent comes with viewing decks and both indoor and outdoor showers that are powered by solar-powered geysers. Wooden walkways lead to the main area, which comes with a dining room, library, lounge, and an infinity pool. Plus: go in search of the camp’s secluded ‘bath-with-a-view’ for an extra-special experience.
