If you are visiting Victoria Falls, then I thoroughly recommend a stay at The Elephant Camp! While you will pay more than your average Victoria Falls Hotel, The Elephant Camp is anything but average! The "tent" accommodation is better than most 5 star hotels and caters to your every need. They are well spaced so your privacy is guaranteed. The... More

Elephant Camp set the tone for our Zimbabwe experience. Staff, accommodations and experience exceeded our expectations. Basil and Petia are superb hosts and ensured that our every need was met. Special memory included a walk with Sylvester.

Eco friendly tent greeted my eyes when first arriving. Hopped very quickly into wonderful outside shower. Did not use huge bath or inside shower at all. Loved huge poster bed which at night was surrounded by spacious mosquito net. Meals were special, provided by Gabriel the chef. Staff were like old friends soon after meeting. Highlights were Sylvester the cheetah,... More

Fabulous staff, outstanding accommodations, mouth-watering food. Great interaction with the resident cheetah and elephants. Lots of activities to book in the area while staying at Elephant Camp. Three nights needed for all the activities.

As others have stated, this was an amazing experience. We were just there last week and had an amazing time. The "tents" are wonderfully furnished, and air conditioned! Sylvester the cheetah was very accomodating to all of us. I am so glad they saved him. They also are doing a great job in rehabbing some elehants, and interacting with them... More

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

I recently used the Elephant camp for my daughters wedding. What a fabulous location and place to prepare for your big day. 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
