We had a 2 night stay at Elephant Camp as our first stop on a 3 week Africa trip. What a great start. Jonathan was not there, but Laura and Hilde did a top-notch job in his absence and left us wanting for nothing. Three new tents have been added (9-12) and we were in number 11. The plus was it was very private with a great view of the gorge. The minus was that it was a long walk to the lodge. However, on several occasions Laura arranged for a ride to drop us off at a closer location.
We were greeted on arrival with a cool drink and a fabulous lunch and it only got better from there. We did not have a car, but the free shuttle from the Camp worked out just fine and they were very accommodating about getting us where we wanted to go and when.
The added plus was the elephants and Sylvester. As guests at the camp we had time to interact with the elephants and also spend time with Sylvester, the cheetah.
What would we change? Nothing at all! If we ever return to Zimbabwe, Elephant Camp will be at the top of our list.
