“It was my favorite, as far as accommodations went. Just gorgeous. The furnishings, the outdoor shower, the private pool and porch…incredible. What I loved was that I could watch the sunrise from my bed, as the bed faced the sliding glass doors so I didn’t even have to move to snap a pic. But, since I was up, I made some coffee and sat on the porch watching the sun coming up and seeing the spray of Victoria Falls in the distance. The food was amazing. As soon as I arrived, I got a chance to meet the elephants. So before I even got to the room, I was petting elephants, getting my picture taken and within an hour, met Sylvester the Cheetah, pet him, got my pic taken with him and then went out on a walking safari. With the cheetah. Who I walked. The next day I did the elephant backed safari which was AMAZING. Everything was so seamless and professional. The staff at the Elephant Camp was wonderful. Absolutely no complaints. The Falls were amazing. Our guide was awesome; gave us plenty of info and time to walk around and take pics and shop. Seeing the Falls was truly spectacular.”
What an incredible experience! Great camp with excellent views, great food and wonderful service; and a great visit with the cheetah ambassador Sylvester! Our room had a view of the “smoke” from the falls and at night we could hear the “thunder”! Hope we can return someday!
