My daughter and I stayed here 3 nights between 8 days in Zimbabwe and 5 days in Botswana. We loved this place. It was a such a nice place to come to after 8 days in the bush, we had all of the creature comforts including heat in the tent...in August that counts when you've just spent time in Hwange where the nights can be below freezing. Jonathon was our main contact and our every wish was his command. He was fabulous, he took such great care of us. We had some excursions pre-organized prior to our arrival and he helped with additional outings. We did the elephant back safari through wild horizons and love it. Our elephant Janet was wonderful and her groom Mathius was so knowledgeable about everything elephant. We learned a lot. We also did a 2 hour horse-back riding safari which was very rewarding too. We especially loved the elephant camp because it was NOT in Vic Falls town, but rather in the Vic Falls National Park and preserved that being in the "bush" feeling. Drivers take you into town to do whatever you want and even wait for you if you need. They are very accommodating. We visited the falls and for my daughter's birthday Jonathon organized for us to walk the resident cheetah, Sylvester, on his first afternoon walk with non-care-takers. What a rewarding experience. We learned a lot from Ed, she is so very dedicated to cheetah conservation. We loved the breakfasts and lunches at camp, but not so much the dinners. They try to be very gourmet with the dinners when actually a more simple fare would be much better suited to the experience. We cannot say enough great things about this place. It's much better than staying at the Vic Falls Hotel or any other place in town. It's a very unique experience and we would love to return there again one day!!!
