Little Ruckomechi

Step into ultimate luxury safari heaven, Little Ruckomechi is a gem and with only 3 tents, it lives up to its name. With the scenic location together with offering guests a private, personal and intimate experience right in the wild African bush, this is the perfect spot to enjoy a few days in Mana Pools. The camp itself is built on wooden decks and the tents are nothing short of wonderful. Fitting in harmoniously with the surroundings, they are spacious, airy and stylish. In the main area, enjoy some time in the plunge pool, overlooking the Zambezi River and relish in the wildlife that pass by.

Lodge Key Features

Heavenly Rooms

With only 3 tents on site, you couldn’t ask for an experience to feel more intimate and personal. Although Little is in the name, the accommodation is far from this. The rooms are spacious and the decor modern, with all the amenities you could think of. When you are out on safari and your rooms are this good, it can be hard to leave you little slice of heavenly comfort. Sit on your private balcony and enjoy the views over the river. In fact, the windows to the rooms are so large that you could lie in bed and watch as the bush comes to life.

Exclusive Drives

For those that do what the exclusivity and like to shy away from crowds then staying at Little Ruckomechi offers all this to guests. When heading out on a game drive it is good to note that only vehicles from the camp and sister camp (Ruckomechi) are allowed in the concession, so the game viewing is exclusive. Enjoy your sightings of the wildlife without swarms of other vehicles, your experience will feel far more personal and intimate.

Dinner on your private deck

Throughout your stay you will get the sense of remoteness and exclusivity when saying at Little Ruckomechi. A lovely and personal touch, the option to have dinner on the deck of your tent. You and a loved one, in an incredibly romantic setting, the starry sky and the sounds of the wildlife at night. These add to the memories, treasured moments that will be engrained in you for a lifetime. Little Ruckomechi is all about creating memorable and individual moments.

Client Reviews

  • Has it all.

    We had heard amazing things about Mana pools and this camp. They did not do it justice. A perfect location on the Zambezi with amazing rooms. Words can,t express the feeling this camp invokes in you. The people are amazing. Eddie the camp manager, Simba, Maychell and the Chefs just cannot do enough to make you feel special and welcome. The game drives with Richard (Ranger and tracker) made it a perfect end to a perfect trip.

  • Intimate Camp and Amazing Experience!!

    My husband and I and another couple traveled here a few weeks ago for our anniversaries and we had the entire camp to ourselves! There is not another experience like this one! The tent/cabins had all we needed and the elephants came right through camp! The staff anticipated what we needed, before we even asked and their hospitality was second to none! Eddie, the camp manager, made our stay memorable!

  • Completely amazing experience in Wild Kingdom

    My wife and I with our two kids and friends with their three kids had the entire camp. each couple had their own cabin as well did each of our kids together with their friends. The cabins were modern, luxurious, spacious and self contained for our every needs. There were all lined up with views to the river and close to the main camp. Everything from the furnishings, service, food and wild life was beyond expectations.
