Bornface and Jeferson our guides were very attentive and efficient. We were the first to be in the new section of the hotel, so there were some beginning malfunctions, but the staff did everything to fix it. The cook did everything to keep up with our nutrition limits and we had many. Over all it was an amazing experience and... More

We enjoyed our time here. The tents were amazing and well designed so you could lay in bed and wake up to the most beautiful sunrises. We stayed for three nights in between Safaris in SA and Botswana, which if we planned the holiday again we would only stay for 2nights, allowing you to relax and spend time in the... More

We stayed at the Elephant Camp from March 10-13 when we visited Victorial Falls. Victoria Falls itself was an amazing experience and we did bungee jumping and white water rafting. However, staying at the Elephant Camp was an experience on its own. The tent was very comfortable to the point of luxurious. The airconditiong was a welcome relief after a... More

We stayed at the Elephant Camp for two nights at the start of a 10-day southern Africa safari. It was a great place to get over our jet lag and acclimate to being on a new continent.Everything went smoothly, from our transportation from the airport, organization of activities, meals, accommodations and transfer to Kasane to continue our trip. The property... More

This was an outstanding place to stay. Everything about it was right. The young management couple Brad and Annie could teach the best hotels a few things about customer service. The room was more like a marquee than a tent. The facilities were top class. The food was excellent especially the dinner. I liked the chef coming round the tables... More

Tracy, the camp manager was fantastic and attended to all our requirements. The Chef,... More

A recent stay at Elephant Camp reminded me of the extraordinary mile some people would go to make your stay as comfortable and as memorable as possible. Excellent service, attentive staff and overall friendliness made the stay worth the while.
