This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

On the edge of the river, ahead of you the open woodlands and in the distance the mountains of the Rift Valley Escarpment. Built into the bush,immersed right into the wonder of the surrounding wilderness, Ruckomechi Camp is a modern safari camp with a lasting classical feel.  

Wood and canvas blend harmoniously to give you both a true tented camp experience, make you feel at home and pampered all in one. It’s understated, yet entirely luxurious and spacious. The décor is relaxed and modest in shades of greys and blue which lull you into a sense of calm. Splendid.You are on holiday after all and this place is magical.

You’re almost always likely to spot elephants in camp. The Ana trees under which the camp is built, draw them in. Their seeds are tasty or so say the elephants. At large the area is well known for great numbers of elephant and buffalo. Be on the lookout too for greater kudu, Burchell’s Zebra,impala, warthog, waterbuck and hippo. Where there’s plains game there are predators. Expect sightings of wild dog, leopard, cheetah and lion. The Ruckomechi pride, a testament to the great conservation success on the concession.

Be a part of the Painted Dog Conservation Project, community based projects and Pack for a Purpose. In conjunction with the Mana Pools National Park, Ruckomechi Camp plays an important role in protecting one of Africa’s great wildlife areas on the continent to preserve this incredible wilderness. Once you’ve been and experienced it for yourself, you’ll see what they’re on about and more importantly why. This place is special.

Activities

Game drives on the private concession and in the National Park. In the morning you’ll stop for a coffee picnic and in the afternoon you’ll stop for a sundowner before continuing on your night drive. Each vehicle allows for guests to all have a “window” seat and uninterrupted views onto the bush.

Boat cruises. In a nine seater pontoon or six seater speed boat. Glorious game viewing and up-close sighting from the river.

Canoeing is a must. Glide through the waters. Explore the river and the surrounds in silence.

Safari walks take you deep into the bush on foot. Guided of course. This is wild country. It’s spectacular and thrilling.

The star bed sleepout is an adventure an activity on its own. Make sure you include this for at least one of your nights here. Fall asleep beneath a billion star sky. Get lost in its magnitude, with only the sound of the wilderness to remind you of where you are.

Catch and release fishing for those that wish to give it a try. It’s seasonal and has an extra cost. Why not catch a tiger fish? This is the perfect spot. It’s peaceful on the river and a catch is always rewarding.

Birdwatching is spectacular. There are many species and local specials. A chance to see the collared palm-thrush, racket-tailed roller, carmine bee-eaters, African fisheagle, African gold oriole, Bohm’s spinetail, Arnot’s chat and western banded snake eagle among others.

There’s also the Photo Hub. This will depend on availability of cameras in camp.
