Combine a stay on one of our luxury houseboats with a visit to Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. The town of Victoria Falls is only 90 minutes away by road from the boarding points of the Zambezi Queen Collection.
Our suggested combination is somewhat unusual from the norm as it includes a stay in the luxurious The Elephant Camp, situated on a private concession within the Victoria Falls National Park and bounded by the Masuwe River and the Zambezi gorges. The camp gives you breathtaking views of the Victoria Falls’ spray, as well as the spectacular gorges that separate Zimbabwe and Zambia.
The Elephant Camp offers exclusive suite accommodation in luxury tents, all of which face the gorge with a private viewing deck, plunge pool and private lounge area from which you can fully appreciate the breathtaking views of “the smoke that thunders”. Just because you’re staying in a tent doesn’t mean you’ll forego any luxuries: each tent is equipped with a large bed with sumptuous linen, air conditioning and ceiling fans, an inside and outside shower as well as a bath with a view!
The chefs here are dedicated to preparing a fine dining experience using fresh seasonal ingredients and herbs grown in the lodge gardens. Traditional African dishes and accompaniments, such as Sadza (African-style polenta) and Chakalaka (a hot, spicy relish) will further enhance your luxury game lodge experience by giving you a taste of the real Africa.
Experience the Big 5 up close on a morning or afternoon game drive, or alternatively join a night drive where you can see some elusive nocturnal animals before returning for dinner at the main lodge or for a romantic meal on your private deck.
Located only 10 kilometres from the town of Victoria Falls, a quick road transfer allows you to browse the bustling town and then set off on an activity of your choice. Embark on an elephant-backed safari, enjoy white water rafting on the Zambezi – or a more sedate sundowner cruise – or get close to nature with a Vic Falls canopy tour.
Whether you’re on a romantic honeymoon, a family break or an adventure getaway, the The Elephant Camp allows you to experience everything Victoria Falls has to offer, and the camp is the perfect base from which to make the most of a stay in this vibrant part of Africa.
