overview

The Elephant Camp is situated within a private concession only 10km from Victoria Falls, in fact the spray of the Falls is visible from the Camp. The camp is most well known for its regular elephant visitors, who can often be seen in front of the camp. Visit the Wild Horizons Elephant Sanctuary for unforgettable personal interaction with the elephants.

Relax and unwind on the deck with a sundowner, enjoy a dip in the pool, or enjoy some of the adventure activities on offer at Victoria Falls, which includes white-water rafting on the Zambezi River, bungee jumping, scenic flights and more tranquil river cruises. Take a walk though the wildlife concession while keeping your eyes open for the wide range of bird species found in the area.

Traveller Reviews

  • The Elephant Camp was beautiful. As I had seen pictures of the camp prior to our arrival, it was exactly what I expected. The only downside which I know is unavoidable are the insects!!!! I could have used less bugs during those three days but especially on our first night at dinner when very large beetle like insects were numerous. Kenya had no bugs, Zimbabwe made up for it! The quantity of food at the Elephant Camp was more reasonable. Lunch was lighter than the lunch at Little Governors -- thank goodness! We enjoyed spending time with Sylvester the cheetah ambassador. I wish the time spent with the elephants was longer. We had a few minutes to feed them after their return from giving rides to other visitors. Jonathan has quite the sense of humor as well. All of the staff at the Elephant Camp was great.

  • The Elephant Camp was a lot of fun. While there, we went on an elephant-back safari, had a chance to meet and pet the resident cheetah (Sylvester)

    Debra Sneck-Fahrer, October 2013
  • The Elephant Camp in Victoria Falls was made special by their cheetah ambassador, Sylvester. We were able to do a walking safari with him the morning we left, and that was another highlight for us. Chris did bungee jumping there too! It was nice to have the private deck/plunge pool as Vic Falls was the one place we allowed ourselves a day to just be lazy and plan nothing. I can't say we would include Victoria Falls on our next trip to Africa, but it was great for a short amount of time and it was interesting to see a new country.

  • Elephant Camp in Zimbabwe was a really great time. Beautiful and resting place, kind and helpful staff and management, many activities at our disposal and the falls. We really enjoyed this place and would appreciate to come back again in a few years. We made 3 activities during our stay : Helicopter upon the falls, walking with lions and elephant back safari and, of course, walking along the falls. All activities organized by the Elephant camp staff. Honestly, Elephant camp was the place with the best services we encountered in Africa.

  • The camp is hidden in a land of contrasts, characterised by its elevation over the plains with a view of the smoke of the Falls in t he distance and the spectacular gorges. The view and location was only the beginning of our pleasant surprises: we were greeted by a very friendly welcome by Jonathan the Manager, Moses, Hilda, Prosper and other members of the staff. We were shown around the elegant lounges and terraces, state of the art facilities, then accompanied to our accommodation: from the outside it looked like a tent but it was pure opulence .The elegant and spacious suite featured elegant inspired décor with all facilities including air conditioning, comfortable sitting room with wide glass window and doors with private viewing, looking onto the magical Victoria Falls gorges. Private deck and covered deck are nicely furnished with table chairs and loungers by the private plunge pool. The bathroom with both indoor and open air shower, has an exotic tub with a view over the valley below. The visit to the elephants and Sylvester the Cheetah complemented our stay . Reasons we picked the Elephant Camp: - Intimate, close to the Falls but not “commercial”. Facilities and amenities. High Level of comfort and services. We found personnel to be extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. Food was nice and well presented. Our expectations were exceeded. We just loved the charm and ambience. Would definitely return and recommend it.

  • Elephant Camp in Zimbabwe was the best overall as it was so peaceful and secluded with lots of space between tents, an amazing view and incredible service and food.

    Adam Fry, July 2013
  • Elephant Camp was also excellent, and Victoria falls was beautiful. The food and service as elephant camp was also above average. If staying at Elephant Camp or near Vic falls I would recommend other travelers visit the ALERT lion rehab program.

  • I’m so glad you recommended Elephant Camp. Loved the tent we stayed in, everyone was great and we went on the walk with Sylvester, which was truly a highlight of the trip. He is so beautiful and his caretakers are great. Also took a helicopter ride over the Falls which at this time of year was the best way to see it and feel the true majestic beauty of the falls.

    Carra Elkins, June 2013
  • We really enjoyed all hotels especially Elephant Plains Game Lodge, game viewing etc. I would not change anything, it was organized well so thank you for that. Everyone, my husband and my sister absolutely loved it.

    Dorota Wolak, May 2013
  • Elephant Camp was the surprise of our vacation. Really didn't know what to expect, but this was a great recommendation you made. Tents were very clean and spacious. Being the tail-end of our trip, we found it to be very relaxing. We would have enjoyed an additional night there. We had time to relax in the pool at our tent and just sit back on the deck. Would highly recommend to all your clients. No game viewing to speak of from the deck, but we enjoyed just relaxing. Manager 'Jonathan' was great, we enjoyed our conversations with him. Added an excursion to the 'Walk with the Lions', which I would highly recommend to anyone.

Elephant Camp - WOW. We are so pleased that we added that onto our trip. The resort was wonderful in every way. The staff was incredible, and the entire experience felt like we were home, rather than at a hotel. I would recommend Elephant Camp to anyone with absolutely no hesitation.
