Surrounded by the iconic albida trees that characterise the area and in the heart of Mana Pools National Park is the luxury lodge Little Ruckomechi. The exclusive camp offers intimacy and seclusion, allowing guests to get that little bit closer to nature.

With just three ensuite tents in total, the camp offers ultimate privacy. Each tent, built on wooden decks, is elegantly decorated and airy inside, and offers unrivalled views of the Zambian foothills in the distance. Living spaces include a lounge, dining area and a plunge pool overlooking the mighty Zambezi River.

The lodge boasts spectacular wildlife viewing, with hippos, buffalo and predators often sighted. Activities include early morning and late afternoon game drives, river cruises and nature walks. Catch-and-release fishing can also be arranged.
