Activities at The Elephant Camp

A Village Tour

There is an African proverb that tells us that “Wisdom is like fire. People take it from others”. By visiting a local rural village and interacting with the people who live there, you not only forge new friendships, you will also discover a different lifestyle, a new way of doing things, and a broader perspective of life without modern luxuries. Africa is rich in culture, and by immersing yourself in another culture, you foster an understanding of it. We travel to learn, to broaden our perspectives, and to gain a deeper appreciation of the diversity of the world we live in. This is a wonderful experience for all, but especially beneficial for children, because, as the Moroccan proverb reminds us, “Instruction in youth is like engraving in stone”. You will fill your suitcase with souvenirs and your camera with photographs, but for an authentic and rewarding African adventure, you should fill your mind with knowledge.

Cocktails & Canapés at the Batoka Gorge

In between the lips of the cavernous Batoka gorge, rages the Zambezi river. Indulge in a selection of cocktails and canapes while nestled on the edge of a steep rock face that is hugged by trees and shrubs and blanketed by an endlessly wide sky. When the wind plays with your hair, the setting sun kisses your skin, and the birdsong floats down from the tree branches, you will realise that this is one of the most perfect positions on the planet. The Batoka Gorge is more than a deep fissure in the Earth. It symbolises decades of Mother Nature’s hard work, chiselling an icon onto her surface. It is evidence of the earth’s immense age. It is a humbling sight that will engulf you and fill you with a sense of appreciations and contentment. This incredible spectacle is just a short drive away from the camp and is the ideal location for relaxation and reflection. With a sight so lovely, it is impossible not to leave with exquisite photographs, which will be developed into small hard copies of the wonderful memories you have made. A selection of wine, refreshing beverages and delectable canapes await guests in this secluded and serene spot.

Guided Visit to the Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)

Africa has an air of romance that sets her apart from anywhere else in the world. However, it is upon stepping into the Victoria Falls rainforest that guests are truly swept off their feet. There is no finer ambience than the gentle roar of the waterfall. The trees grow so closely together that their branches entwine, and their soft, wet drip across the stone path that weaves through this natural wonder. Submerge yourself in the fragrance of the fauna and the playful fauna in this enchanting and awe-inspiring space. A guided tour is included in the nightly rate, excluding park fees. Satisfy your wanderlust by visiting the more beautiful of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Lunch at Wild Horizons Lookout Cafe

Embark on a trip to the one-of-a-kind Lookout Café, perched 120 meters above the turbulent rapids of the Zambezi River. This all-inclusive activity is set against the backdrop of the iconic Victoria Falls Bridge, which hangs over the spectacular chasm of the Batoka Gorge. During the rainy season, wisps of the spray from the rainforest curl around the edge of the rock face near the bridge. Creative cocktails and other beverages are included in the activity. From the vantage point of the café, guests can watch the bright rafts plummet through the rapids below, or adrenalin lovers soaring through the air on one of the exciting high wire activities.

Spa Treatments (Optional Extra)

Selected Spa Treatments are available in the privacy of your suite (subject to availability, on request at an additional charge).

Victoria Falls Canopy Tour

The black basalt of the Batoka gorge stretches 100 meters skywards and is enrobed in thick vegetation, creating an idyllic space for zip lines to whizz through and unveil a stunning perspective of this breath-taking natural setting. Embark on a two-hour eco-adventure lead by two professional guides across nine unique slides. The adventure unfolds from the Wild Horizons Lookout Café, perched above the cove that forms at the first bend of the river below the waterfall. This is where your senses awaken to the excitement to come as the overwhelming view of this cavernous gorge rises to greet you. The turbulent rapids rage below, their steady roar climbing up the canyon creating an ambience of adventure. The awe-inspiring fauna and flora that sprouts across the lips of the gorge entice Trumpeter Hornbills, Schalow’s Turaco, Peregrine Falcons- and if you are extremely lucky, the rare Taita Falcon. The gentle nature and moderate speed of the slides entices those who want to experience an adrenaline rush minus the scare factor. This is the activity where tranquility meets titillation and can be enjoyed by nature lovers, families, thrill seekers and corporate team building groups. The canopy tour can even be appreciated by those who get sweaty palms and a tingle in their toes just thinking about heights, as the slides traverse over a thick tangle of trees and vegetation.

Walking Safaris - Nature & Birding Walks

The Wild Horizons concession appears like a flame lily in a bouquet of roses- unique, intriguing, captivating, and drenched in natural beauty. Over 420 bird species flock to this bush paradise, nesting in the trees, drawing stencils across the sky, and flitting around the streams to create an aura of opulence that beckons keen ‘twitchers’. The experienced eye of your accompanying guide will show you the clever weavers west-side nests, the tawny brown Falcons perched between Baobab branches, and the scarlet feathers of the lilac breasted rollers that dance among the leaves. Zebra, impala, sable, wildebeest, kudu and warthogs have also made the concession their home, and curiously survey you as a guest exploring their world.
