We visited The Elephant Camp and Victoria Falls at the end of a Botswana photo safari. The staff were very helpful, the food was good, and the accommodations were excellent. I was accompanying my elderly mother-in-law, and the staff were very gracious in helping her with her limited mobility. We enjoyed the visit with Sylvester and a chance to meet... More

Then you must go to The Elephant Camp! We loved feeding them with their trunks up and trunks down and had an amazing ride on them as well! Their handlers are friendly and you can see how much they respect these wonderful animals and love them. The accommodations and food was amazing! A little piece of heaven in the bush... More

We were only there for less than 24 hours but had a wonderful time! The staff were all very friendly, and the food (and coffee) was incredible - definitely exceeded my expectations. We also enjoyed meeting Sylvester the Cheetah - what a cool experience!

Outstanding staff catered to every wish, sometimes before we even thought of what we needed! Best Chef of all our Safaris with his creative fare. Try the Eland filet and Eggs Benedict for sure! Interacting with the elephants was special, but the time with Sylvester was most memorable. The highlight was of course the stunning hike thru the fantastic Victoria... More

The Elephant Camp is an amazing experience. We stayed here for two nights, but should have stayed longer. The management and staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the accommodation luxurious and unique. Food was great, and the rooms sensational. So quiet and peaceful away from the bustle and noise of Victoria Falls township. Meeting and patting Sylvester the cheetah... More

I loved my stay here and I'm not one for camping. This is more glamping. The tent is large sized and had a huge bed and full bathroom with full sized tub and separate shower. There was also an outdoor shower. The deck had a table and chairs and a plunge pool and views of the falls in the distance.... More
