Ruckomechi Camp is situated on the western boundary of Mana Pools National Park. The camp is set amongst broad-canopied ana trees, much loved by the elephants for their rich nutritious seeds. The central dining, bar, library and lounge areas face the escarpment and are connected to the rest of the camp by low-level walkways. There is a separate deck with an infinity pool and hammocks for swimming and sun bathing, and an inviting, cushion-strewn star gazing deck. Wildlife viewing takes place in open 4×4 vehicles, on motorised pontoon boats or on canoes, on foot and in hides.
