The following morning after breakfast, guests will be transferred by light air transfer to Mana West Airstrip. On arrival, they will be met and transferred by road to Ruckomechi Camp, where they will stay for three nights. Situated on the western boundary of Mana Pools National Park, 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 favourite amongst 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 walk-ways. There is a separate deck with infinity pool for swimming and sun bathing, and an inviting, cushion-strewn star gazing deck. The camp is as environmentally friendly as possible – hot water and lighting for each unit is provided by solar power. The area is renowned for large numbers of elephant, buffalo, hippo and eland, especially in the winter when they concentrate along the river. Activities include wildlife viewing in open 4×4 vehicles, on motorised pontoon boats, on foot and in canoes.
