Little Ruckomechi, Mana Pools National Park

Little Ruckomechi enjoys a fabulous location within a private concession adjoining one of Africa’s great wildlife sanctuaries, Mana Pools National Park.

If you’re after a truly intimate, exclusive safari experience on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Zimbabwe, look no further than Little Ruckomechi. Nestled among the region’s famous albida trees, this classic tented camp allows its guests to feel as close to nature as possible, starting with sensational views across the Zambezi River. With only three ensuite tents to its name, the experience here is truly unique. Raised on wooden decks, each tent is tastefully styled in a way that reflects the bygone explorer era with traditional canvas walls, writing desks and copper washbasins. 

Throughout your stay, you’ll get the chance to track big game - lions, leopards, wild dog and elephant - on exciting game drives, and experience fascinating bush walks alongside knowledgeable guides. Other activities include canoeing, fishing and boat trips on the Zambezi - a great way to spot local birds. Facilities include a refreshing swimming pool, a cosy communal lounge and stylish dining area all with lovely river views.
