An absolute treasure - we are so grateful to our travel agent for recommending this to us. My wife had her doubts before we went as everyone she mentioned our trip to asked if we were staying at the Victoria Falls Hotel. Well after a day at Elephant Camp and a quick evening drink at the Victoria Falls Hotel we had no doubt we'd made the right choice. The Camp is very intimate and Jonathan is a fantastic host - for each of our 3 nights there he ended up having a night cap with us and regaling us with stories of Zimbabwe. He was also kind enough to get a special birthday cake for my wife at dinner.
Other highlights of the Camp (rather than the Falls) - excellent food, wonderful daily visits by Sylvester the orphan cheetah & the sheer peace and quiet so close to the Falls. Would definitely go back.
