Hi everyone. I've been looking into the Ruckomechin camp, in Mana Pools, as part of an August trip. The camp is in a gorgeous spot, and from what I've read the game should be in abundance (and the guiding very good). If anyone has stayed at Ruckomechi, I have a few questions remaining:
expertafrica says that the Ruckomechi concession is small, and the game drives don't travel very far into the NP. Did you feel like you were travelling the same ground all the time?
Are the walking safaris taken seriously, or are they "light"? The reviews I've read say that the walking trips are very good, but the Ruckomechi website simply lists them as "nature walks", which is not very encouraging...
And those late afternoon winds, that arrive in August, a real drag? Dusty?
And how bad were the tse-tse flies, when you were there? Quite a few folk say that the flies were in abundance, although less so when you are close to the river.
Mmmm... Sorry about the long list of questions. Ruckomechi certainly looks great.
Thanks for your time.
