The Elephant Camp

Rated one of the best lodges in Zimbabwe, The Elephant Camp is more than just a destination - it's an experience, characterised by immersive encounters with nature and enlightening cultural and conservation excursions. The lodge is famous for its magnificent views, spacious design and beautiful location in the Victoria Falls National Park. The main deck overlooks the cavernous Batoka Gorge, with the 'Smoke That Thunders' resting lightly on the horizon. Victoria Falls is a short twenty-minute transfer from the lodge, giving guests the freedom to tailor-make their experience and find a balance between the exclusivity of the bush and the excitement of Africa's Adventure Capital.

From the sunken fire pit and boma dining area, to the private plunge pools and outdoor showers, The Elephant Camp promises an intimate safari experience in the heart of the wilderness. The uncluttered beauty of the interior spaces and the careful placement of each suite invites continuous engagements with nature, ensuring that the camp is enveloped by stillness and serenity.

The imaginative use of canvas preserves the romance of yesteryear with a classic safari atmosphere, accentuated by thoughtful finishing touches. There is a seamless flow between the lodge and the surrounding wilderness, with an open plan design that echoes the easy rhythm of nature. Even the bathtub has a panoramic view of the landscape, and the well-stocked mini-bar is replenished daily for a safari sundowner on the private deck. The air-conditioned suites inspire meaningful connections with the wilderness, while harnessing the essence of adventure inherent to a safari experience.

The birdlife at The Elephant Camp offers visitors an entirely new frontier in wilderness engagement, with over 420 bird species on the concession. Zebra, impala, sable, wildebeest, kudu and warthogs have also made the Wild Horizons Wildlife Sanctuary their home and curiously survey you as a guest exploring their world.

Lunch at Wild Horizons Lookout Cafe

The Lookout Café has become a bucket-list experience in a bucket-list destination and a Victoria Falls landmark restaurant. Perched on the edge of the Batoka Gorge above the raging Zambezi Rapids, the Lookout has panoramic views of the Victoria Falls Bridge that hangs in the chasm of the Gorge, connecting Zimbabwe and Zambia.

Though called the Lookout Cafe, the meals are more refined than everyday eats. Enjoying dishes like the grilled lemon and garlic Zambezi bream, with the gentle rumble of the river drifting over the rim of the Gorge, makes the 'place on a plate' sentiment a reality. Every dish gains both place and style when paired with imported wine from South African vineyards. Casual dining has never been more decadent.

Cocktails & Canapés at the Batoka Gorge

Indulge in a selection of cocktails and canapes on the rim of the Batoka Gorge, where the Zambezi Rapids rage 120 meters below. This hidden gem is the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner and is exclusively for guests staying at The Elephant Camp.

The Village Tour digs beneath the surface of Victoria Falls' and celebrates cultural diversity.

Visiting the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust

The Elephant Camp is surrounded by natural beauty, and we focus on creating a space where guests can form a relationship with and learn about the environment they are in. We do this through our partnership with The Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust, located in the Wild Horizons Wildlife Sanctuary adjacent to the lodge. The Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust, a non-profit entity and dedicated vehicle for promoting conservation awareness, education, and community empowerment.
A tour of the Trust is part of our guest experience. Guests will visit the High-Care Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre and Laboratory facilities to learn about innovative conservation initiatives from a team of passionate research and wildlife experts.

Meet the Ambassador Herd of elephant

The Wild Horizons Elephant Sanctuary and Orphanage was established as a safe haven for orphaned and injured elephants after culling operations in the 1980s. The resident herds roam freely through the wilderness concession, and when guests visit the Sanctuary, they are taken to the elephant, not the other way around. The Elephant Encounter is best described as an experience and not an activity. Our goal is to have visitors spend time connecting with resident herds in the most positive and natural way possible while learning about this keystone species and gaining a deeper understanding of conservation initiatives.

In an open thatch boma on the edge of the Masuwe River in the Sanctuary, guests will listen to a presentation by one of our experienced elephant caretakers. They will learn about the history of the Sanctuary, the elephants, and the rescue-rehabilitate-reintegrate program. Then, guests venture out to where the herd has chosen to spend the afternoon. They are invited to take photographs, observe and immersive themselves in the experience.

Guests can look forward to 5-star service, hot & cold canapés, creative cocktails and a selection of beverages.
