Elephant Camp Victoria Falls

This exclusive camp is the epicentre of elephant encounters and offers top-notch service in a contemporary safari style with gorgeous views

The luxurious Elephant Camp, with its rolling views across the concession towards the Batoka Gorge and Zambia, is the place to be to experience unforgettable elephant encounters. You'll get a chance to meet these magnificent creatures at the nearby Wallow, where you'll gain some understanding on a few of the issues that elephant conservationists tackle on a daily basis in Africa.

The emphasis at the Elephant Camp is on exclusivity. Twelve large tented suites are individually kitted out with indoor and outdoor showers, baths, private lounges and plunge pools. It's a contemporary-style lodge with canvas, glass and wooden decks. Jonathan Ellway and his team will make you feel at home as they uphold the highest service standards.

Elephant Camp was created after the original elephant programme on Woodlands Estate near Victoria Falls was relocated to a larger private concession within the Victoria Falls National Park in 2005. The White family, who have been working with elephants under the Wild Horizons Wildlife Trust since 1994, owns both Elephant Camp and Imbabala Lodge.  The Wild Horizons Wildlife Trust focuses on the care and maintenance of orphaned elephants.

Elephant back safaris are run at sunrise and sunset daily. Interactions take place during the day, at breakfast, lunch and dinner.  The elephants are most definitely the centre of attention at Elephant Camp. If you're looking for a bit of personal attention yourself then get us to arrange a spa in your suite.

Advance booking from July to October, over the festive and Easter periods is essential.

    Wild Horizons Wildlife Trust is a non-profit organization aiming to advance and promote environmental conservation in Southern Africa through hands-on wildlife research and management of a wildlife medical care facility and orphanage. The company also focusses on education and empowerment of indigenous resources through active involvement in conservation training and community outreach programs.

    Based at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, the Trust is dedicated to protecting the area's unique indigenous fauna and flora, in collaboration with appropriate authorities, local communities and other stakeholders. Projects include but are not limited to, rehabilitation of injured or orphaned wildlife, anti-poaching and wildlife veterinary assistance where required, assisting with community-based projects, and a children's conservation education program.

    "The objectives of the Wild Horizons Wildlife Trust are first and foremost the care and rehabilitation of wildlife, and to impart knowledge and skills of conservation of natural resources to communities"

    The projects focus on four areas: Communities Outreach, Wildlife Research, Wildlife Orphanage, and Conservation Training.

    The projects that fall within the Communities Outreach program are conservation-orientated projects such as an education conservation program for school kids.  These projects are designed to raise community awareness about the importance of conservation in the hope to reduce poaching.  

    Wildlife Research projects aim to find sustainable ways to protect wildlife such as the elephant. These projects incorporate ways of releasing animals and finding solutions to the human-wildlife conflicts in the community.  

    The Wildlife Orphanage programs are set up to protect, rescue and rehabilitate animals that are either endangered or have been injured, abandoned or orphaned through human interference.  Release of these animals is also an issue that is addressed.
     
    Conservation training includes a variety of courses about topics ranging from guiding to anti-poaching.  These courses are provided to either individuals, internal employees or the private sector.  

    The overall aim of all the projects is to promote conservation through community awareness as well as starting at a very basic level of rescue and rehabilitation.
