4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The camp is just beautiful and the staff very friendly and caring. The elephant interaction is just a lifetime experience not to be missed. The rooms are big with outside shower that I got so used to I never used the bathroom one. The plunge pool is so soothing in the afternoon overlooking the reserve toward the falls where you... More

We ended our holiday at Elephant camp after a é weeks trip in South Africa and this last night was just amazing. This lodge is excellent and unique. The tented rooms are spacious and nicely decorated, each room has a terrasse with a pool to enjoy a beautiful view on the bush. Meeting Sylvester was remarkable and we will all... More

At The Elephant Camp, each room has a plunge pool alongside. I played with Sylvester the Cheetah and fed many elephants. We went to the edge of a gorge which was once the place of the falls long, long ago.

The people here are so friendly and welcoming that it is hard to resist writing a 'gushing' review that in my view is unhelpful. I echo previous contributors who say that Stacey and Himal are brilliant hosts and the staff here are simply wonderful. We stayed in Elephant Camp West where there are four tents that share a bar/dining room.... More

Fantastic staff that will go above and beyond for you, all inclusive, nothing's too hard for these guys. In 2 days we managed to fit in an elephant experience, meeting sylvester, a trip to the lookout cafe for a beautiful lunch, and a really wonderful experience visiting the local village and school. Himil the manager was a real highlight for... More

Hilma and his team were excellent. Thinkwell and Bonny were extremely knowledgeable as guides and both gave us an great insight of how Zimbabwean people lived. Meeting Sylvester was remarkable, what a great embassardor for the camp and incidentally only for residents of the camp. Hilma, of course, was a fabulous host, making sure we well looked after, even organising... More

This lodge exceeds your expectations in everything they do and offer. The facilities are world class, the staff are efficient and tentative, the food ..... just to your liking. The elephant interaction respects all aspects of conservation!

Belatedly writing this review from October but our experience was so sensational that I felt obligated to share it. From the moment we were warmly greeted at the entrance we felt indulged and valued but in a very unpretentious and genuine manner. We sadly only had one night after an excellent Wild Horizons canoeing trip, but in that oh too... More

After eight absolutely wonderful days on a mobile tented safari in Botswana with &beyond (can't recommend them highly enough!!), we ended our safari at Elephant Camp. Our safari was fantastic, but after being quite hot and dusty for eight days, we were happy to have arrived in paradise!! This is a gorgeous camp with permanent lodgings that are technically tents...but... More
