After 8 nights under canvas in the Botswana bush we arrived for another night under canvas at Elephant Camp- however this was a very different under canvas experience!! From entering Elephant Camp you are looked after in a luxurious environment. The tent is huge! A lounge room with complementary mini bar for the compulsory Gin and tonic, a four poster... More

It´s great to spend a couple nights at Elephant Camp, to you can have time enough for not only visiting the vic falls, but also to relax in a great spot, and enjoy their activities, or just the fact of being there

We loved staying at the Elephant Camp. The staff was so attentive and helpful and the food was wonderful. We had a wonderful guide to the falls and the elephant ride was incredible. I would recommend this to anyone who loves luxury travel.

Not cheap, but extremly good place to stay a few days. Staff was willing to do and help everywhere and was very friendly. This tentented place doesn't remind you on a tent, exceeded all expectations. Would like to stay again.

Everything about Elephant Camp was incredible. The staff treated us like royalty (WOW), the food was healthy and super yummy, and our room was jaw dropping amazing. We were sad to leave, it was such an incredible experience.

The Elephant Camp is a very good choice if you plan to combine a visit to the world-famous Victoria Falls with a luxury and individual lodge. The service is superb and absolutely deserves its 5-star status. You should note that the Elephant Camp is not a classical safari lodge and is not offering any game drives starting from the lodge....

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. we arrived later than expected due to plane delays but despite... More

This hotel exceeded all our expectations for this trip. We will definitely return and recommend it to all our friends. Rooms were clean with lots of extra supplies that made it just a little more special, and staff members were always on hand when called.

We started our African adventure here on our visit to Vic Falls. Read good reviews and came with high hopes. They were exceeded. From the minute we got there, the service was spot on. Lovely luxury tent (#11 and 12 were more secluded), great plunge pool and outdoor shower, wonderful meals and staff could not have been nicer. This picky... More
