Ruckomechi Camp, completely rebuilt in 2008, is positioned on the banks of the Zambezi River at the western end of Mana Pools. The camp is protected by large umbrella acacias with the bar and dining area overlooking the river. Accommodations are nine luxury tents with en suite bathrooms. Here you will be able to walk and take game drives, canoe or boat from the camp. Wild life you may see are lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, hippos, kudu, waterbuck, eland and maybe the shy nyala.
"We stayed at three different tented camps (Khwai Tented Camp in Botswana, Somalisa in Hwange National Park, and Rukomechi in Mana Pools). All three were very nice and we would definitely recommend any of them. As before, Somalisa was our favorite - just the right combination of comfort, a "real" bush camp experience, plus small enough that you could interact with other guests and large enough to have other guests. Also, the meals at Somalisa were particularly good."
"A highlight was our stay at the Ruckomechi Camp. Elizabeth and her staff were wonderful; they really cared for all our needs and you could tell they enjoy their job. Our guide was named Honest and he was great: he was personable, very informative, and great at finding the animals. I really appreciated the length they went to accommodate my gluten free diet. They had a quality alternative for every snack/tea and meal. I was very impressed…We really enjoyed the setting of the camp and the wonderful spots they took us to for sundowners. It was just beautiful! Also there were a variety of activities which we really liked."
