Ruckomechi Camp and Little Ruckomechi Camp Wilderness Safaris recently overhauled its Ruckomechi Camp, adding seasoned leather couches, rough-hewn coffee tables, and hand-blown glass vases to the 10 tented suites, all shaded by acacia trees and facing the Zambezi River. In July, they also opened a satellite camp downstream for travelers who truly want to get off the grid. Called Little Ruckomechi, it has three airy tents on elevated wooden decks, plus a dining room, lounge, and swimming pool. Doubles from $700.
