We stayed at The Elephant Camp for two nights. The camp is very beautiful and luxurious; the individual tents are large, beautifully furnished and all have individual plunge pools, soaker bathtubs and outdoor showers. This place is an oasis for those looking for an upscale experience close to Vic Falls.
For us this was the last of five camps (the other four were in Botswana) during a ten night safari. We appreciated that this is a different experience where the focus is not on wildlife viewing; instead, you are able to interact with the rescued elephants at the sanctuary next door and enjoy meeting their resident cheetah, Sylvester and of course, visit the falls where varied activities are offered (but not included).
The service was excellent; we can’t say enough of the personal attention we received. Moses took very good care of making sure we could schedule everything we wanted to do and drove us into town and back whenever we wanted to. Our daughter was given her own tent (which proved to be a bit too adventurous for her) and when management learned she had actually spent the first night on our couch they quickly arranged for a mattress to be brought over and set up in our tent for her.
The food was very good, there were plenty of delicious options for breakfast and the chef was very accommodating with a special request for dinner. The only thing we felt could be improved would be to offer a few more options for lunch.
The elephant back safari and the bushwalk with Sylvester were real highlights. Would highly recommend The Elephant Camp to those who have already seen lots of wildlife and are ready for an incredibly romantic, relaxing and luxurious treat.
