Wilderness Safaris Ruckomechi Camp Reviews & Information

Use the drop down below to find out more information about Wilderness Safaris Ruckomechi Camp.

Ruckomechi is on a large private reserve in the Zambezi Valley’s Mana Pools Park, which looks out onto the edge of the mighty Zambezi River. The Park is an 850 square miles of untouched Africa on the frontier of Zimbabwe & Zambia. As the recent drought takes hold and the lakes gradually recede, the area attracts many large animals in the search for water, turning it into one of Africa's most renowned regions for wildlife-viewing.

Wilderness Safaris Ruckomechi is so remote is the area, that the elephant outnumbers humans. Spectacular views of the Zambezi river from Zimbabwe side and the mountains in the back will fill you with the wonder of a time gone by for explorers & adventure seekers. The camp of tents sits under a thick canopy of trees which shelter it from the warm African sun.

Mana Pools chalets are made up of eleven great tents: all placed for optimum privacy with views onto the wilds of Africa. After a hot day of exploring, relax in the pool or relax in the lounge and bar area with serene mountain views. Enjoy the soft crackle of the fire in the evenings or at the nearby star-bed which overlooks a productive waterhole where the animals get their last drink before sunset.

The National Park boasts exceptional views of buffalo, hippo and predators. The outdoor 'bath-with-a-view' is a prime spot to spy the elephants stealing the tasty pods off the trees surrounding the camp.

Stunning sunset & sunrise safari drives in open 4X4 vehicles will give guests an eye-opening experience of the variety in surrounding wilds. Night drives are also available by using a red-filtered spotlight to ensure minimal disturbance of the wildlife.

Guests are welcome to cruise down the Zambezi River in long pontoons or a speedboat for 6. Canoes can be used for the more adventurous at heart to see the flocks of waterbirds and other wildlife that come to relive their parched throats along the waterside.

Led by the experienced guides, walk in the footsteps of past explorers through the Mana Pool paths. The most unexpected and impressive sightings may occur on these walks in the surrounding bush.

Mana Pools boasts many species of fish including bream (tilapia), barbel (catfish) and tigerfish. Catch and release methods are practised at all Wilderness Safaris camps so be sure to bring along your equipment to enjoy this experience.

The abundance of birdlife in the area will keep a keen bird-watcher occupied for hours. Sighting of Arnot's chat, three-banded courser, western banded snake-eagle, Green-capped Eremomela, African golden oriole, Lilian’s lovebird, Böhm's Spinetail and Meve's starling are familiar sights in and around the camp.
