HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 January 2017

Our stay at Elephant Camp was wonderful because of two primary factors 1) welcoming (and efficient) staff and 2) the location and beauty of the facility. Staff made everything easy for us and were clearly focused on making sure we enjoyed our stay. We did several tours -- including a visit to the Falls and a day trip to Botswana...

This is a special property boasting unique experiences. You get to interact with humanely rehabilitated elephants and a lovely cheetah by the name of Sylvester. The tents are VERY well-appointed with extremely comfortable baths and beds. The camp's greatest asset by far, however, are Annie and Bradley. Their anticipation of guests' every news has me wondering yet whether they might...

I just returned from an amazing trip to Africa and was fortunate to spend three nights and two days and it wasn't enough time.

We loved our stay at the elephant camp! We took a large family safari trip through a few different countries in the southern part of Africa, and the Elephant Camp was a nice spot to have in-person interactions with some of the creatures we'd witnessed in the wild. Walking with Sylvester, the rescue cheetah, was a majestic experience! Do not...

The staff and the service were perfect. The staff very generous and professional. The rooms were unique and very comfortable with a beautiful view on the bush and the waterfalls. It was one of the best camps that we had stayed during our three weeks holidays.

Because of an SAA cabin crew strike we were deprived of 24 hours at this paradise.

Great location and friendly staff. Wine list needs improvement for the rate charged. The rooms require new towels and the small pool is icy cold and cannot be used during autumn of even days when temp is in region of 25 degrees centigrade.

“The luxury "tent" was amazing. The only reason it can be called a tent is because it has a canvas roof and walls, but it is fully air-conditioned, on a concrete slab, and fully furnished with luxurious furnishings, real glass doors that lead to a private deck with soaking tub and a spectacular view of the bush! We could even see the mist from Victoria Falls in the distance.”
