Lodge Overview

The Elephant Camp Main and Elephant Camp West are nestled on a ridge between the Masuwe River and the Zambezi gorges, giving guests an uninterrupted view of the breath-taking spray that swells above the Victoria Falls rainforest.
Set against a backdrop of indigenous teak woodland, the imaginative use of eco-friendly canvas tents allows this unique camp to live in harmony with the surrounding environment. The Elephant Camp Main consists of 12 luxury suites and The Elephant Camp West consists of just the four suites which makes it ideal for exclusive use by smaller groups and families looking for a more intimate safari experience.

Main Camp Accommodation

Each of the Elephant Camp’s luxury tents has a spacious deck with a private plunge pool and an outside shower and is blessed with amazing views.
Even your indoor bath offers an unparalleled view of the horizon.

The rooms have been deliberately designed to celebrate the openness of the African bush, and there is an easy flow from the bathroom to bedroom to private lounging area that spreads onto the spacious deck through glass sliding doors.
The stylish furnishing and décor has been specifically selected to capture the beauty of the natural environment, retaining the authenticity of the African wilderness. The suites are equipped with air conditioners and ceiling fans, which are a welcome comfort after a day spent under the blazing African sun.

There is a tea and coffee station and a well-stocked mini bar, both of which are replenished daily.

During the rainy season when the Zambezi is at peak capacity, guests are lulled to sleep by the “Smoke That Thunders” as the river gushes over the side of the cavernous gorge. This therapeutic and natural ambience is accentuated by the calls of a diverse population of bird life that nest around the camp.

All suites are gorge facing, and during sunrise and sunset, the cloud of mist that hangs over the rainforest is illuminated by an array of deep colours between red and orange.

West Camp Accommodation

The Elephant Camp West has been specifically designed to meet the needs of smaller groups and families looking for a more intimate and exclusive safari experience.
Although The Elephant Camp West operates separately to the main camp, it embodies the same authenticity, luxury and environmentally sensitive premise.

The four luxury tented suites all have a dramatic view of the classic African landscape and the impressive cloud of mist that sits on top of the horizon above the Victoria Falls rainforest.
The spacious, “marquis-style” tents have their own private deck and personal plunge pools that are perched on a ridge with the ‘Mosi Oa Tunya’ (smoke that thunders) in view. They are fully equipped with air-conditioning, a tea and coffee station and a well-stocked mini bar, each of which are replenished daily.

The bath-with-a-view and outside shower allow guests to fully absorb the wilderness experience while remaining protected from the elements.

The dining tent and main pool deck are detached from the main camp, ensuring a serene dining and relaxation time.
The décor evokes a luxury safari ambience with rich colours, wooden artifacts and an open-air design.

The camp can host eight guests in four stand-alone suites for the ultimate safari get-away.
