Rooms were superb, but it was the staff and the friendliness and attention we received that made it special. We had two very sick children who had been made ill at another property: the staff could not have been more attentive and helpful and with their assistance we managed to turn a possible problem into a great experience

This tented camp exceeds all expectations of what a night under canvas can be like - absolutely out of this world! The camp is 5 star, Basil, Petra & all the staff are welcoming and very helpful, the tents are amazing & the furnishings are something you need to see to believe (you are under canvas). The views are awesome... More

My daughter and I stayed the night before and the wedding party stayed the night of the actual wedding in all the other tents/ lodges at the camp. Basil was amazing!!!!! He copes with one tent full of... More

We just finished a stay here and I can't say enough. Loved very minute of it. Rooms are amazing; food was amazing; staff was amazing; and the up close encounters with the elephants and Slyvester (resident cheetah) was amazing. Do yourself a favor and stay here.

I came to the elephant camp after 4 weeks volunteering in Kenya. It was exactly what I needed, tons of great activities and a "tent" you never want to leave. The food is great and the views are unreal. Slyvester of course makes this place unbeatable. Getting to hang out with a cheetah! It's just ridiculous how amazing this place... More

Elephant Camp is full of surprises , I really enjoyed this. Not often to you get to be close up and personal with animals which to me was a major treat.... More

Two words: “Hidden Gem”. This small camp was utterly superb. Super Luxury Tented accommodation, about 10 mins from Vic Falls, on a hill overlooking the plains. There were little surprises hidden around every corner, our guides surprised us with wonderful experiences all the time, from meeting Sylvester, the resident Cheetah, to feeding the local elephants, to enchanting sunset drinks on...

Charles and I spent three nights here before moving onto Mfuwe in Zambia. What a way to start a holiday. Everything was perfect. The hosts Basil and Petra were lovely, very helpful and informative. The staff are fantastic and very gracious, meeting your every need with a smile and warmth. The food and accommodation were first class. Sitting in the... More

Well , what can I say! Luxury is the word. We were treated like we were treated wonderfully from arrival to departure. Our holiday did not end until the dropped you at the airport. They certainly know how to treat you well. We had a fantastic guided tour of the falls from Calvert, who despite seeing the falls daily managed... More

Luxury in the African bush, stay more than one night and be pampered. Spend some time with the elephants and breakfast with the majestic Cheetah . five star lodge with food to match, and service from a warm and friendly staff.
