My wife and I stayed in Elephant Camp from 20th - 21st Sept. 2012. We had to stay one night in Victoria Falls because after arriving from Europe we could not continue to fly to Matusadona Nat. Park until the next day. Because of the design as a camp we choose Elephant Camp for the overnight stay and we were not disappointed.
The camp lies conveniently located midway between the airport and the city. The spacious tents / rooms have air condition and are definitely the quality like a luxury hotel. Comfortable beds, sofas and chairs in the tent and on the terrasse. The bathroom was well equipped and the outdoor shower gives the necessary kind of safari feeling.
The food was good and plenty and served at the table.
Also the service was very good. Jonathan, the Manager arranged a spontaneous ride to the Wild Horizons Wildlife Sanctuary as well as to the Victoria Falls just for us.
The best thing was the unexpected opportunity for a game walk with a cheetah next morning. That was such a wonderful experience. Sylvester (the name of the Cheetah) was born in April 2010. Sadly within two days his mother and four of her cubs were killed by a lion. He was raised by hand and is now living in the Wild Horizons Wildlife Sanctuary next to the Elephant Camp. Sylvester now works as a „Cheetah Ambassador“ to draw attention to the difficult situation of cheetah.
Not only because of the cheetah adventure Elephant Camp is the best adress to stay in Victoria Falls.
