Little Ruckomechi is set on the banks of the Zambezi River in a 3,700 hectare private concession which borders the western boundary of Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park. The camp is nicely hidden in a shady grove of Natal mahogany trees.
Accommodation & Facilities
The camp has three spacious, tastefully decorated, en-suite chalets built on wooden decks with excellent views of the river and the escarpment in Zambia to the north. The camp has separate dining and lounge tents, which both overlook the river. There’s a swing seat hanging from a large tree, seating in the shade and tables for meals, and a fire pit for relaxing in the evening, and a small plunge pool.
Wildlife & Activities
As well as day and night game drives, guests can enjoy walking safaris, cruises down the river and, for the more adventurous, canoeing is a great way to see the many water birds, hippo and other wildlife on the river. Wildlife viewing here is excellent, with lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, hippo, crocodile, eland, and waterbuck seen regularly. Elephants are often in and around the camp, and bird-watching is also very good, thanks to the river attracting large numbers of water birds.
