We opened our trip with a short stay at this place. Instant relaxation. There is a beautiful view of the mist/spray rising from the Falls and you can watch clouds being created and drifting away while relaxing on the deck with a drink of your choice. There are lots of comfortable chairs out on the deck so you can really... More

Unfortunately we only stayed one night, but from the minute we arrived we received top class service. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. The views were stunning and I was lucky enough to spend time with Sylvester and his team....I cannot recommend this place highly enough...I am already planning to return next year...you will not be disappointed!!

From the very minute you are welcomed at the airport by the wonderful staff of Wild Horizons to the time you sadly depart from Elephant Camp, you feel you are part of warm team aboard a well run ship. Its close proximity to the airport and the town of Vic Falls makes this the perfect destination if you are looking... More

We began our trip to South Africa with a side trip to Victoria Falls. It's just lovely. We were greeted by Hilda, Moses and Calvet as we stepped out of the van. The tented guest sites were some of the most beautiful rooms you can imagine. We could see the mist from Victoria Falls. The staff was amazing. Calvet took... More

Instead of a telephone, they use walkie- talkie and o e night ours went off beeping loudly non stop. I l could not... More

Very convenient, 15 mins away from airport or Victoria Falls park entrance. Can actually see the smoke / mist of Vic Falls from the lodge balcony. The best was the walk (USD50 per head as donation) with Ed and Sylvester (the Cheetah) in the morning. Could enjoy being in the bush and go up to the cliff to over-look the... More

We stayed at Elephant Camp as the last stop on our safari. We had experienced some great lodges but this one was simply the highlight of our trip. Rooms/tents are very spacious, each with their own bath, indoor and outdoor shower, small pool and terrace with a view on the National Park and the impressive sprays of the Victoria Falls.... More
