The Camp

Situated on a large private concession in the heart of the Zambezi Valley’s Mana Pools National Park, Ruckomechi Camp looks out from the banks of the mighty Zambezi River. Ruckomechi is a remote, beautifully located safari camp with spectacular views of the broad flowing river, adjoining well-defined tree canopy and mountains of the Rift Valley escarpment over the border in Zambia. The central dining, bar and lounge areas face the escarpment with a separate deck for swimming and sunbathing, and an inviting fire deck for convivial evenings under the African skies. A romantic star-bed available to guests is situated nearby overlooks a productive waterhole. A night spent under a blanket of stars with the sounds of the bush all around you completes the Ruckomechi experience.

The Tents

Shaded by a large grove of acacia and mahogany trees, the camp accommodates guests in just ten spacious and beautifully decorated en-suite tents, including two family rooms, all overlooking the river. Each tent sits atop a slightly raised wooden platform with a shaded outdoor sitting area looking out onto the plains and mountains, comfortable twin or double bed, and small desk to journal your days adventure.

The Activities

Head out to get a feel fir Africa under foot on a guided walking safari, climb into the 4x4 for an early morning or evening game drive, or venture out onto the great Zambezi River on a boat safari to explore this wildlife rich area. Mana Pools National Park lies at the heart of the Zambezi Valley, a remote, beautiful place with spectacular views. The area offers large concentrations of buffalo and elephant, while predators such as lion, wild dog, leopard and cheetah are also often sighted. Greater kudu, Burchell's zebra, impala, warthog and common waterbuck can be seen on the surrounding plains and the grunting of hippo can be heard all day. Birdlife is superb, with numerous local specials like collared palm-thrush and racket-tailed roller. The experience at Ruckomechi Safari Camp is truly unforgettable.
