You may, as I was, hesitate a little at the price for Elephant Camp. Take my advice, DO IT! Jonathan (who, I hope, will take my advice and put up some YouTube videos to advertise) was a delight and there is a fantastic harmony between the hosts, the camp, the staff, the outdoors, and the town of Victoria Falls. We were in tent #12 (the fact that some of the walls were canvas is where the 'tent' description ends...) and it was magnificent! Great views, great meals (introduced by the chef), a wonderful environment all combined for the stay of a lifetime. Meeting Sylvester and the Elephant Back safari were highlights, as was just relaxing on our deck and dipping in our private pool. The staff even arranged for us to attend Easter Mass in Victoria Falls, as we requested.
Wonderful experience and a great group of professionals running the lodge. If you are doing a Wild Horizons package, you may want to consider staying more at Elephant Camp and less at Imbabala- especially if you are a couple.
I sincerely hope that I can make it back to Elephant Camp one day!
