The Elephant Camp
At a Glance
- every suite has a plunge pool that's most welcoming in the summer months, although if you're feeling more social, the main lodge has a big pool, too
- even though it's in the middle of a national game park, you'll be disappointed if you're there to see a variety of game

The Elephant Camp Review
From the deck of your luxurious tented suite, you gaze out across the bush and down to the Batoka Gorge and the "smoke" rising up from the Victoria Falls, just 10 km (6 mi) away. Each suite has an indoor and outdoor shower, a big bath, and an intimate lounge with a mini bar so you can enjoy a drink while you admire the view from your deck. Dinner is in the main lodge's dining room with the other guests; it's a fairly relaxed affair with delicious food. Don't be surprised if you're asked to be the guinea pigs for a new mouth-watering dish the chef is trying out. Breakfast and lunch are taken out on the deck that overlooks a water hole popular with buck and elephants. Three minutes' drive from the lodge is where the elephant ride begins. Even if you don't feel like hopping onboard one of these magnificent animals, guests of the camp can pop down and interact with them once they're back from their outing. The beauty of Elephant Camp is its simplicity, the wonderful attention to detail, and the staff who work there. This is the perfect place to relax, socialize, and take in Victoria Falls in its entirety.
