Wilderness Ruckomechi lies on the banks of the Zambezi within the world renowned Mana Pools National Park, 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.
The area is renowned for large numbers of elephant, buffalo, hippo and eland, especially in the winter when they concentrate along the river. Predators such as lion, leopard and wild dog are all found in the area and the birdlife is superb. Game drives and guided nature walks are offered and there are also water activities such as river cruise, fishing and canoeing when water levels permit.
There are ten spacious en-suite tented rooms each with indoor and outdoor showers, and the camp boasts a favourite amongst guests: its outdoor ‘bath-with-a-view’ in a secluded, scenic spot! Of these 10 rooms there are 2 family units consisting of two ensuite tents with the second being slightly smaller. 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 minimise our environmental impact. There is a separate deck with infinity pool for swimming and sunbathing, and an inviting, cushion-strewn star gazing deck. There is also a Star Bed At Parachute Pan for a night under the stars.
