In case you would enjoy a truly lovely experience, be sure to spend some night at the Elephant Camp! From the camp you can enjoyed a breathtaking view of the Victoria Falls’ spray, sipping gorgeous wine and tasting delicious meals! At the Elephant Camp we stayed 2 nights during our honeymoon in a luxury and intimate tent, with private plunge... More

It would be difficult to find fault with the Elephant Camp. The rooms were stunning and very well appointed, and the staff extremely welcoming. This is not really a lodge for game viewing but for rest and respite with the option to do some activities, either at the Camp or in town. Enjoy it!

Great place to stay at VF. Slightly outside town centre but you get the safari experience and they have complimentary guided tours to the VF town. Plus you get to see Sylvester the cheetah twice a day! Staff are great and very friendly. Food was extraordinary. We had Vusa, who was excellent. Highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed for 5 days and had a fantastic time there. Staff were welcoming, friendly and the service top-notch. The room and location first class. Memorable walks with Sylvester and his handlers.

This is the perfect place to rest, relax and luxuriate after a safari. Incredible staff, beautiful rooms and main lodge. If we had known we would have booked our last week there with local small trips.

As most of the reviews will tell you.....the Elephant Camp is absolutely amazing. The facilities are excellent but what made our stay even better was the helpful and friendly staff who go out of their way to make you stay memorable. Walking with Sylvester the cheetah was the highlight of our stay - as was riding on the elephants.

The staff bent over backwards to accommodate me using their internet very early in the morning (1-3am) so that I may be able to contact my family back in the United States for the first time in over two weeks. It really helped rejuvenate my spirit and made for a very wonderful experience. Thanks.

We stayed at The Elephant Camp in two tents for two nights as part of our safari trip around Africa. Our main purpose of the stay was to visit the Victoria Falls and the hotel was recommended by our travel agent. The tents are beautiful. Secluded from one another with fabulous views. Large, with an open plan sitting area and... More

There is nothing about The Elephant that is not excellent! The staff, food and accommodation is fantastic! The interaction with the elephants and Sylvester was amazing and something to remember for the rest of you life.

We spent 3 nights here at the end of our Safari holiday. Tents are awesome and have heating and aircon. Beautiful fluffy white sheets and robes, and crisp white sheets on the four poster mosquito-netted beds. You can see the 'smoke that thunders' spray of Vic Falls from your room. Food is great - wonderful fresh fruit and home made... More
