Where to stay

Below you can see some of the wonderful places we have recommended for this journey.

The Elephant Camp £££££

  • Zimbabwe
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

Elephant Camp is situated just 40 kilometres west of Victoria Falls on 14,000 hectares of privately owned wildlife estate. The camp accommodates a maximum of eight people in four thatched chalets. It has a dining area, swimming pool and bar/patio area, all with sweeping views of the plains. Many of the activities here are about spending time with the camp’s elephants – be it game-viewing from their backs, picnicking with them on the estate, grooming, feeding and swimming with them, or just experiencing the pleasure of being so close to such magnificent animals.
