Units at The Elephant Camp

The Elephant Camp West

The Elephant Camp West

Elephant Camp West’s four suites cater for groups and families traveling to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. The suites are of the same size, style and design as the current rooms at The Elephant Camp. Each suite has a bedroom area (interchangeable beds to suit king or twin), a lounge area with comfortable fold-out sleeper-couch style beds which enable the room to cater for small families, a spacious bathroom (bath with a view, indoor & outdoor showers) as well as a private deck and plunge pool overlooking the Victoria Falls National Park with spectacular views of the spray of the Falls on the horizon.

  

The camp has a beautiful central lounge area with bar and indoor dining room.  The expansive deck offers an ideal alfresco dining location - perfect for savouring culinary excellence, whilst taking in the sweepings vistas of Africa. Cuisine is of the same high standard as that offered by The Elephant Camp; catering staff are managed by the Executive Chef from The Elephant Camp. The Elephant Camp West serves as an extension of The Elephant Camp, Victoria Falls, as well as a stand-alone facility offering an exclusive experience for up to 16 guests.

 

During construction of The Elephant Camp West bush clearing was kept to a bare minimum in accordance with Wild Horizons’ environmental policy.  The suites were sited to maximise privacy through the use of existing trees and vegetation. Other green initiatives implemented include using ‘grey water’ systems, worm farms for bio-waste and solar water heaters as well as the planting of 50 indigenous trees and the establishment of a nursery to ensure the continued forestation of the Sanctuary.
