If you are wondering where to stay when visiting The Victoria Falls, we went on a field trip to Victoria Falls in June – and brought back some great insider tips from our camp and lodge visits! In this blog post series we take you to three Victoria Falls accommodations which are highly recommended!
— TIP # 1: THE ELEPHANT CAMP—
After having been to Mana Pools the previous week, we were back on the road again! This time going up north of Zimbabwe to Victoria Falls. We were looking forward to see three lodges this time: The Elephant Camp, the recently built Old Drift Lodge and the Africa Albida Properties!
It was a lovely, but chilly June morning when we drove out of Victoria Falls town to see The Elephant Camp. On the way, we met our colleagues Luke and Suzanne Brown from Vayeni, and then we headed to the camp. We were all excited to get a feel of the new developments at the camp.
Tendo took us through the facts and details, and to our pleasant surprise we learned that there is now an additional west wing of The Elephant Camp. This separate part of the camp goes by the name “Elephant Camp West” and specifically caters for families. Taking families up to four in one room, this camp has four tents, meaning the full west camp has 16 guests only. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see this part of The Elephant Camp because they were fully booked, but at least we got an idea from the descriptions Tendo gave us. Below are some of the camp’s own images from the west wing, to give you an impression as well:
The visit at The Elephant Camp came to an end and we were treated to some lovely refreshments before we were on our way to Old Drift Lodge.
