Ruckomechi Camp is anything but average. It is located in the Mana Pools National Park, one of the least developed reserves in Southern Africa, attracting an array of wildlife and very few guests - an excellent combination in our book. The camp itself occuppies a stunning setting, nestled under a grove of acacia and mahogany trees and facing out onto the green, greasy Zambezi River. Beyond the Zambezi, there are open floodplains, lush vegetation and in the distance looms the mountains of Zambia. Guests are spoilt with a relaxed library and lounge area that takes in this view, and there is a central dining area and bar. The infinity pool is very much welcome between game activities, only after you brush up on that tan of course! The main areas are linked to the tented suites by wooden walkways that blend seamlessly into the bush.
Accommodation comes in the form of eight tented suites, each with wonderful views of the Zambezi flowing serenely past on its voyage towards Mozambique. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom, indoor and outdoor shower, fan and mosquito net, and opens out onto a verandah that is ideal for whiling the days away, and enjoying a spot of armchair game viewing. There is a honeymoon suite, ideal for newly weds or those seeking a romantic getaway, and all the suites are solar powered so you are doing your bit for the environment.
