Ruckomechi Camp, Zimbabwe

And breathe. The Ruckomechi Camp, on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, surrounded by a stunning national park, is the absolute opposite to life in the city jungle.

Welcome to a different sort of wilderness, where large groves of acacia, albida and mahogany trees replace skyscrapers and office blocks. Where the magnificent Zambezi flows silently past your camp, instead of the usual city view of streams of passing traffic. Where you hear wildlife in its natural habitat rather than the bustle of urban streets.

Make Ruckomechi Camp part of your luxury, tailor-made vacation to Zimbabwe and you’ll experience a different world. One where you’ll come to feel at one with nature. Where you’ll be surrounded by the astonishing scenery of the Mana Pools National Park and the mountains of Africa’s Great Rift Valley. And where you’ll meet the locals – including elephant (who regularly visit the camp), hippo, buffalo, eland and a wondrous collection of fascinating birds.
