Ruckomechi

Location
Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe

Ruckomechi Camp is situated in a private concession on the western boundary of Mana Pools National Park in northeast Zimbabwe. The camp rests under a large grove of acacia and mahogany trees overlooking the Zambezi River, with a superb view of the Zambian Escarpment. The area is renowned for its frequent lion, elephant and leopard sightings, and large concentrations of buffalo are often found along the river's edge. Ruckomechi offers a fantastic combination of great game viewing, stunning scenery and a multitude of bush activities.

Accommodations at the camp are in nine spacious en-suite tented units, all of which overlook the Zambezi River. Each tent has both indoor and outdoor showers, as well as an outdoor 'bath-with-a-view' in a secluded, scenic spot. The central dining area, bar, library and lounge face the escarpment and are connected to the rest of the camp by low-rise walkways. There is a separate deck with an infinity pool and an inviting, cushion-strewn star-gazing deck.

The area boasts large numbers of elephant, buffalo, hippo and eland. Predators such as lion, leopard and wild dog are all found near the camp. Birdlife is superb, both for mopane woodland and riverine species, with numerous local specials like collared palm-thrush, racket-tailed roller, purple-banded sunbird and black-throated wattle-eyes.

Activities include wildlife viewing in open 4x4 vehicles, aboard motorized pontoon boats, on foot, in hides and in canoes.
