Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

At The Elephant Camp you are in a private concession within the Victoria Falls National Park with a view of the Vic Falls spray rising up like a ground-level cumulonimbus. About 10km from the falls and 15km from the airport and surrounded by nature you have the best of both worlds.

Accommodation at The Elephant Camp is in enormous tented suites that are more like private villas. With a view of the Batoka Gorge you have a private plunge pool and two lounge areas - inside and out, a massive bed and a luxurious en suite bathroom with a wonderful open-air shower at the back. The entire front of your suite rolls up to let in the view and enhance the bush experience yet, being so spread out, you are in total seclusion and the whole scene just sings with romance.

The main living area is another enormous deck under canvas with comfortable sitting areas, a large shaded viewing platform that makes the most of the waterhole at your feet. The food is a feature at Elephant Camp and you can dine either with the other guests or al fresco at your suite. The service and ambience are refined, elegant and utterly professional. All you need to do, in the words of any Zimbabwean is to "just enjoy".

4 additional suites are found at The Elephant Camp West, a secluded wing which offers an intimate and exclusive atmosphere ideal for smaller groups and families. Away from the main camp, its more private but still offers the same incredible hospitality and safari experience.

The Elephant Camp is home to the Wild Horizons elephants and a stay here includes incredible interaction with these amazing animals. A rescued cheetah offers his gorgeous profile for photo shoots and the grounds have walking trails with the many indigenous birds as your guide.
