      Ruckomechi Camp

      Tented Camps in the Zambezi Valley

      On the middle reaches of the Zambezi River, 62 miles below Lake Kariba is the Mana Pools National Park situated in the heart of the Zambezi Valley. Ruckomechi Camp lies on the banks of the Zambezi, shaded by a large grove of acacia and mahogany trees and with a superb view of the mountains of Africa's Great Rift Valley across the river in Zambia. Ruckomechi Camp accommodates guests in ten spacious en-suite tented units, including a honeymoon suite, all of which overlook the Zambezi River. Each tent has both indoor and outdoor showers, and the camp boasts a favorite among guests: its outdoor 'bath-with-a-view' in a secluded, scenic spot. The central dining, bar, library and lounge areas face the escarpment and are connected to the rest of the camp by low-level walkways that minimize our environmental impact. There is a separate deck with infinity pool for swimming and sun bathing, and an inviting, cushion-strewn star gazing deck. Ruckomechi Camp has aimed to be as environmentally friendly as possible - hot water and lighting for each unit is provided by solar power. The camp vegetation is dominated by broad-canopied albida trees, much loved by elephants for their rich nutritious pods; these animals often join visitors in camp for a light meal. The area is renowned for large numbers of elephants, buffalo, hippo and eland, especially in the winter when they concentrate along the river. Predators such as lions, leopards and wild dogs are all found in the area. Birdlife is superb, particularly for both 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 at Ruckomechi Camp include wildlife viewing in open 4x4 vehicles, on motorized pontoon boats, on foot and in canoes.
