Ruckomechi - The Details
Once a vast flood plain for the mighty Zambezi, the park gets its name from pans that hold water during the dry winter season.
It is one of Zimbabwes best kept secrets and one of the least developed National Parks in Southern Africa, allowing some of the most intimate and private Safari opportunities.
Mana Pools is ranked as one of Africas outstanding wildlife reserves and during the winter months it has the highest concentration of game in the entire continent.
This unique and special national park is spectacular, with the Zambian escarpment acting as a backdrop. Aside from the excellent walking safaris in Mana, the Zambezi River adds another dimension and is ideal for canoe safaris.
Regular sightings include Wild Dog, Lion and Cheetah
The best time to visit the park for wildlife viewing is at the end of the dry season (August-October)
