We stayed at Elephant Camp for 3 nights. They were very friendly and organized. We were greeted with hand towels and welcome drinks and were given an orientation and went over our itinerary. We were able to add or adjust activities each day as well because Wild Horizons manages Elephant Camp and most other activities in the area. The "tents"... More

We were so happy with the tentes and the nice little pool at the terrace, the bathroom had the best view ever 😊 The out-look cafe is worth visiting and the Gorge Tour is nice and relaxing. It is a great location for visiting the falls, and go say hallo to the Elephant even though you wouldn't ride them. Nice... More

We stayed 3 nights and saw the falls from the ground, at night during full moon ( night rainbow), from the air and from the water! The camp oozed luxe and Stacey and Thinkwel organised everything! The kitchen was efficient and i could walk in and discuss with the chef. The cake made for our wedding anniversary was great. Wifi... More

Had the pleasure of staying here at the end of our stay with & Beyond from Botswana and elected to stay an extra night. So glad we did - amazing place and very special service. A bit out of town, but that is nice as you feel like you are in the bush - you overlook the National Park in... More

We really enjoyed the Elephant Camp, private, beautiful tents, clean, friendly staff and great value. Food was fantastic and definitely enjoyable. The tour to the Victoria Falls activities was awesome and the activities such as Zip Line, Canopy and Flying fox was the best! Even our 8yr daughter participated

This place just oozes luxury. It is super-expensive, but you can find packages that include 1 night here for what at least feels like less money, and believe me you will not regret it. You will have your very own rigid tent complete with four poster bed, living room, bathroom with shower and bath, outside terrace including yet another shower... More

We arrived by road on 27/8, as we arrived staff lined up to give a cheery wave as a welcome. Luggage was taken promptly and we were given iced tea as a welcome drink whilst being given a quick run down on activities. We were shown to our 'tent' by a lovely young lady who it turns out had only... More
