Ruckomechi Camp lies on the banks of the Zambezi in a private concession on the western boundary of Mana Pools National Park. 10 spacious en-suite tents including a honeymoon suite all with views of the Zambezi River. All of the safari tents have indoor and outdoor showers. The central dining, bar, library and lounge areas face the escarpment and are connected to the rest of the camp by low-level walkways that minimise the environmental impact. Ruckomechi Camp has aimed to be as environmentally friendly as possible - hot water and lighting for each unit is provided by solar power.
