Ruckomechi looks out over the Zambezi waterfront on a large private concession in Mana Pools National Park. Remote seclusion, this lovely spot offers its guests a private safari experience. There are 10 well-appointed large tents that stretch along the river, offering panoramic views of the mountains and woodland over the river. In an area where the game is rich and the habitat varied you don’t have to venture out into the park to get a wonderful, intimate safari experience.
10 tents (including 2 family units)
Private safari experience
June – Mid November
If you like to experience new and exciting ways to see the wildlife and from a completely different angle, then make sure you experience canoeing down the Zambezi River. It is far more thrilling that it sounds and an incredible way to get closer to the wildlife. Not only will you pass a number of hippos on your journey but it’s a wonderful way to enjoy the birdlife along the river too. Try head out at the right time of day (ask your guide) and you could encounter elephants taking a bath.
Whether you are out on a game drive or relaxing in the main area and taking in the beauty of the surroundings, Ruckomechi creates wonderful and personal experiences to its guests. With its unique features around camp to add to the experiences, you will want more time here to make sure you make the most of their personal touches. Enjoy some down time in the pool that looks over the river, or relax in the outdoor bath with the bush and the noises of the wildlife surrounding you. There is even a star bed, right near a waterhole…a must! All these additions create a memorable stay.
The great thing about the camp being outside the park and on the stretch of water it is on, is it is the only place in the area where you can enjoy water-based activities with a motorised boat. A great way to see the wild from a completely different perspective is heading out on a boat safari, adding to the number of other activities you can enjoy which also include catch and release fishing trips (equipment not supplied) and the charming sunset cruise, which is by far the best way to end the day…watching the sun set over water.
