The suites are luxurious and spacious, secluded from the main lodge offering privacy. Each suite has a private splash pool overlooking the reserve. The suites are equipped with all the amenities one can expect from a 5 star establishment. This is the place where safari dreams come true. Irene and Hamil are the perfect hosts, and their team will cater to all your needs. Thank you for making our trip an unforgettable experience.

The Elephant Camp is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Victoria Falls. It's a short trip to the Falls and is a lovely, comfortable camp. The food and accommodations are great. The staff is warm, friendly and very helpful. And the camp is a safe haven for elephant rehabilitation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Our time at The Elephant Camp was nothing short of amazing. Staff, accommodations, food, hospitality and attention to detain was top rate. Located only few minutes for Victoria Falls and the Victoria Falls International Airport making this an excellent location for our group. The property shared a border with Zambia, with breathtaking cliffs and the Zambezi River below. The best 'sundowner' location we experienced. And, oh yes, the elephant encounter was something we will remember for the rest of our lives.

What sets this place apart from the rest is the staff. The attentiveness, the kindness and attention to detail! From a stressful airport transfer going through immigration/2 different borders (as we landed in Livingstone), it was such a relief to arrive and have the whole team of staff awaiting us, waving, wearing big smiles, ready to take our bags and welcome drinks at the ready! Lunch was then served whilst the deputy manager arranged our itinerary, we stayed 3 nights but could only fit in activities on 2 days due to flight timings! Incredibly thanks to the team we were able to fit in a canopy tour, lunch at the lookout cafe, sundowners gorge drinks, Victoria falls tour, meet the elephants and a sunset river cruise! Jam-packed but still had time for naps in between! The chef came out personally for each meal to each table to explain what was on the menu, again a lovely touch, food could not be faulted! Drinks are slightly more on the simple side but it's cute because the bar men really did try and make me an espresso martini, all be it not the best aha! The lodge is lovely, we were room 10 which be warned is a bit of a trek, but once there you feel totally secluded like your the only tent! Thanks l the camp for making our stay special! Will be recommending!

We were lucky enough to spend two nights at the amazing wild horizon Wallow camp. We got there all dirty and tired only to be received like royalty! Welcome drinks, facetowels and most of all the most amazing staff! Our little one (5) did not like the "green"drink - she immediately got a pink one! And that set the tone for the rest of our stay. Every wish was granted before we even uttered it. The accommodations are spotlessly clean, everything we might have needed, was there. The food is excellent and beautifully presented. The elephant interaction was definitely a highlight of our trip. Where else can you feed and touch these grey giants and learn so much about them. Camps are often not happy about small children but at the Wallow everyone treated her like she was their's. She enjoyed the pool, the food and her favourite place was on the back of the safari vehicle. Happy kids make happy parents. Thank you all for making our stay really unforgettable.
