Evoke the most intense feelings on walking and canoe safaris in the company of expert guides at Ruckomechi. Whether it is peace, exhilaration or dread, the emotional ride will leave you rejuvenated and enlightened. Spend lazy afternoons sprawled on a hammock or escape to the comfort of your chalet where contemporary mod cons await.

Located in the legendary Mana Pools National Park, Ruckomechi enjoys incredible views across the Zambezi to the towering escarpment on the Zambian side of the river. Albida trees provide both shade and seed pods that are beloved of elephants, meaning that these charismatic creatures are never far away.

Guest accommodation consists of ten spacious en-suite tented units, including two family units, and open 4x4 vehicles, motorised pontoon boats, canoes and good old safari boots facilitate the wildlife viewing. The camp even features a secluded outdoor bath for a luxurious sensory experience. Ruckomechi is open throughout the dry (winter) season.

INSIDER'S TIP: A boat cruise along the mighty Zambezi is a wonderful way to see wildlife and waterbirds from a different perspective. For the more adventurous – there’s the option of canoeing along this famous river!

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.
