Wilderness Ruckomechi

Wilderness Ruckomechi offers a luxury tented experience in a private concession at the western edge of Mana Pools National Park.

Wilderness Ruckomechi is set in a grove of mahogany and albida trees and lies on the banks of the mighty Zambezi within its own private concession on the western edge of Mana Pools National Park.
