From our arrival at the airport we felt so welcomed by the Elephant Camp team! On our arrival to the Camp we were greeted by staff who quickly welcomed us and promptly organised an itinerary for our stay which included a variety of activities that kept us busy and entertained. The accommodation and communal areas were beautiful and peaceful surrounded by trees and bushland with views of the mist from Victoria Falls and elephants walking through the parklands. The food was great with exceptional service from the friendliest bunch of people who always greeted us with the warmest smiles. We couldn't have thought of a better place to get engaged and thank all those that helped in making it happen. We have nothing negative to say about the Elephant Camp and can't thank everyone enough for the incredible time we spent there. We hope to see you all one day soon!

Everything about my birthday weekend with The Elephant Camp was just amazing - they don’t stop, in a good way, they just want to make sure that you are buzzing. Thank you to everyone. I had such a lovely time

We spent three nights at the Elephant Camp and loved every minute of it! The tents were comfortable and luxurious and the food was top-notch. The employees were wonderful and so nice and helpful. Our trip to Victoria Falls (the town and the waterfalls) was fun and informative. The best thing was visiting the elephants....an unforgettable experience!! Two full days wasn't enough for us to experience everything they had to offer so next time (yes! already planning our return!) we will go for five nights so we will have four full days to see the sights AND relax at the pool. Next time we may try their sister camp (Old Drift Lodge).

Had a wonderful time at The Elephant Camp. The staff was warm, friendly, courteous and helpful. The accommodations were glamping at its best. The food and drinks were delicious. The location near Victoria Falls was perfect and the elephant interaction was an amazing experience. Can only say good things about The Elephant Camp.

We really enjoyed the drinks at the gorge in the evening. The staff were all very informative, welcoming and helpful and the room and the camp were just wonderful. I particularly loved the outdoor shower.
