Ruckomechi Camp

Place: Ruckomechi Camp rises along the banks of the Zambezi River, gazing out towards Zambia’s evocative escarpment. Its broad-canopied albida trees create glorious shade throughout the camp, and are much loved by the elephants for their rich, nutritious seeds. Our concession is explored by vehicle or on foot, while boating and canoeing allow for a different perspective of the area. Accommodation: Ten spacious tents (including two family units), along with a generous main space, enjoy the broad vista of the Zambezi River.  There is a separate pool area, a unique outdoor “bath with a view” in a secluded, scenic spot, and for the romantic, a Star Bed is located nearby.Purpose: Despite the political, and therefore financial, challenges that we have faced in Zimbabwe over almost two decades, we have never given up. Our simple presence on the ground has maintained a social and environmental stability throughout.   NOTE: Ruckomechi is open seasonally between 1 April and 15 November.Unique Selling PointsScenic location that epitomises Mana Pools National Park Elephant herds and other game seen daily within the camp confinesOutstanding dry-season wildlife concentrations
