Mana Pools National Park is around 100 kilometers from Lake Kariba situated in the heart of the Zambezi Valley. This is a stunning and remote place with spectacular views of the floodplains, river, tree canopy and mountains of the Rift Valley escarpment. Most of the 2000km2 is inaccessible except on foot which really makes this an unspoilt habitat. This stretch of the Zambezi River is famous for its pools which are remnants of channels of the river which stopped flowing years ago. These and smaller pools hold water all year round which draws a wide variety of wildlife and birdlife. The area is renowned for large numbers of buffalo, hippo, elephant and eland and predators are regularly sighted. This beautiful area is Zimbabwe’s second world heritage site and warrants an extended stay to appreciate the variety of flora and fauna.
Ruckomechi Camp, situated in a private concession with access to the western areas of Mana Pools National Park, accommodates guests in ten spacious en-suite tented units, including two family units, all of which overlook the wide Zambezi River.
