Hugging the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, this is for those enjoying a remote place with spectacular views onto the river, tree canopy and rift valley
Natural world | Safari | Wildlife
Situated on a large private concession in the heart of the Zambezi Valley’s Mana Pools National Park, Ruckomechi Camp has spectacular views of the flowing river and the mountains of the Rift Valley. The camp can be accessed by light aircraft from Harare, or by road/boat transfer from Lusaka or Victoria Falls. The nearest airstrip is Mana West, located 20 minutes from Ruckomechi.
Ten tented chalets are tastefully decorated with local art and decorative features, with en-suite facilities and ‘wet-room’ style showers. The luxury canvas tents are solar powered, opening onto wooden decks that hold breathtaking views of the Zambezi River and passing wildlife. Other rooms include a family tent and honeymoon suite which features an outdoor bath, or the ‘sleep-out’ platform for sleeping under the stars.
Light breakfasts are enjoyed al fresco before setting out on an early game drive, followed by hearty brunches upon your return with lunches and afternoon tea served between game viewing activities and dinner. Dinner is a three-course plated affair enjoyed in the thatched dining room or under a star-filled sky.
Home to a wealth of animal species, Ruckomechi Camp offers morning and evening game drives with experienced and knowledgeable guides, allowing you to see and learn about all the incredible diversity of wildlife that inhabits Zimbabwe. Other facilities include an infinity pool and an inviting, cushion-strewn star gazing deck.
