Taking shade from a grove of trees, on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, Ruckomechi Camp owns a brilliant location, with sweeping views across the water to the rising mountains of Africa's Great Rift Valley. Found in the Mana Pools National Park, the camp offers a number of water based activities, including canoeing and boat trips. There are a number of facilities found in camp, including a lounge, dining room and bar along with an expansive decking area with infinity pool, perfect for midday relaxation, and a star gazing deck.
The area is rich in large game, with a very strong elephant population; you can also expect to see hippo, buffalo and eland. During the winter months the river becomes a hotspot for wildlife and guests can enjoy some casual game viewing from the lodge. The camp aims for an eco-friendly approach with lighting and hot water in tents provided by solar power. There are 10 tented suites at Ruckomechi and all with excellent views of the Zambezi River. All accommodation is en-suite, with outdoor and indoor showers and an outdoor bath that boasts further vistas. In-between activities you can sit out on the wooden decking and relax in the surrounding wilderness and enjoy a comfortable night's sleep in the roomy beds with fresh linen sheets.
