Beyond its small radius of busy streets, yammering hawkers and sprawling hotels, Victoria Falls is surrounded by pure African bush meaning you can have your safari cake and eat it. Especially if you stay at The Elephant Camp.
At The Elephant Camp you are in a private concession within the Victoria Falls National Park with a view of the Vic Falls spray rising up like a ground-level cumulonimbus. About 10km from the falls and 15km from the airport and surrounded by nature you have the best of both worlds.
Accommodation at The Elephant Camp is in enormous tented suites that are more like private villas. With a view of the Batoka Gorge you have a private plunge pool and two lounge areas - inside and out, a massive bed and a luxurious en suite bathroom with a wonderful open-air shower at the back. The entire front of your suite rolls up to let in the view and enhance the bush experience yet, being so spread out, you are in total seclusion and the whole scene just sings with romance.
The main living area is another enormous deck under canvas with comfortable sitting areas, a large shaded viewing platform that makes the most of the waterhole at your feet. The food is a feature at Elephant Camp and you can dine either with the other guests or al fresco at your suite. The service and ambience are refined, elegant and utterly professional. All you need to do, in the words of any Zimbabwean is to \"just enjoy\".
The Elephant Camp is home to the Wild Horizons elephants and a stay here includes incredible interaction with these amazing animals. A rescued cheetah offers his gorgeous profile for photo shoots and the grounds have walking trails with the many indigenous birds as your guide.
