We stayed for two nights at the Elephant Camp at the end of our safari in October and absolutely loved it - can highly recommend. You need a minimum of two nights stay here to be able to enjoy all the Camp has to offer. Annie and Bradley do a top job of running this resort, we were so impressed....

Shocked at how old this place has been in existence, still looking very new and I have not come across such a tented camp in this part of Zimbabwe. I vowed that in my life I will never sleep in a tent no matter what but as soon as I locked my eyes into the camp, to me this is...

I booked at Elephant Camp for two nights from the 25th to the 27th of November, 2016. On arrival from the airport the reception was very good. In fact I felt very welcome. The welcome made me feel at home. I was given a detailed orientation of the camp and my room was sparkling clean and had all the things...

We spent 3 days here. We liked the remote setting, the sundowner excursions, interaction with cheetah and elephants and the wonderful staff. We felt the genuine hospitality from everyone who worked at the Elephant Camp. It was the highlight of our African trip. There are mosquitos-so take precautions

Our African adventure was perfect thanks to Bradley, Annie and the entire staff. Our lodgings were elegant yet we felt as if we were a part of our surroundings. Meals were delicious. Due to rain our outdoor dining was moved inside and it was a pleasure to meet some of the other guest of the camp. Our daily schedule was...

This was my first time traveling to Zimbabwe. I was impressed with the entire experience from the accommodations to the food to the welcoming staff. I did get several mosquito bites in the evening so I highly recommend spraying insect repellent and long pants at that time of day.

We had a short but fantastic stay at Elephant Camp West, not just the fantastic accommodation, also the marvellous staff and animals. We were welcomed by Himel, the manager, who ensured we knew what was on offer at the camp and made sure that we were comfortable and happy. The tented rooms are wonderful, spacious and very relaxing.

This hotel provides the height of luxury in a wildlife environment. The rooms are spacious and clean, the cuisine is excellent and there are many activities besides a visit to Victoria Falls. One can take a sundowner by the Zambezi Gorge, feed the elephants and take Sylvester, the cheetah, for a walk.

Our room had a panoramic view of the park. The staff were friendly and helpful. The happy hour drive with drinks and appies and overlooking the Zambezi River gorge was fabulous! We got to meet and pet Sylvester the cheetah and learn about him. I also got to pet an elephant which was amazing. I would highly recommend this camp.

“Room 6 is strategically located and provides the occupants with a very good view of the Smoke that thunders. It is also near a water hole thereby attracting animals to drink water and in turn the occupant of the room has a very good view of animals drinking water. ”
