Guest Tent with elephant Mana Pools Game Drive Safari on the Zambezi

Mana Pools is one of the greatest wildlife areas of Africa. It is home to large concentrations of buffalo and elephant, while predators such as lion, wild dog, leopard and cheetah are often sighted. The surrounding plains have abundant Greater kudu, Burchell's zebra, impala, warthog and common waterbuck and the grunting of hippo can be heard all day. Birdlife is superb, with numerous local specials like racket-tailed roller and collared palm-thrush.

Little Ruckomech is a 'home from home' experience offering an authentic, stylish bush camp feel. Built on wooden decks, the en-suite tents are airy and elegant; a reminder of the by-gone explorer era. The living spaces include a dining room and lounge as well as a plunge pool all looking out over the great Zambezi River and the Zambian foothills in the distance.
