The staff and management could not have made my stay any more comfortable - both friendly and accomodating. The hospitality and activities that are included in the stay are amazing - the Elephant encounter and the visit to the Wildlife trust are highlights, as was the sundowners looking over the gorge. The serenity and tranquillity are fantastic. 10 out of 10

A wonderful personal service in beautiful surroundings, with luxury accommodation and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. All inclusive was just that, including doing your laundry. Some trips were extra but transport was provided to meet the trip transport. The staff were friendly, helpful, polite and informative. The evening meal choices were restrictive and had no vegetarian option, but I got the impression that if we had asked for something different, it would have been provided. They even drove us the 30 minutes to their other property ‘Old Drift’ for lunch, when we asked what it was like, at no extra cost (this was luxurious too, by the Zambezi river). We loved our stay at Elephant Camp and were made to feel special. We would highly recommend it.

Stay here!!
The staff was absolutely amazing - so friendly and knowledgeable and adaptable to our changing schedule. The food was plentiful and delicious, and served whenever we wanted! The included perks were beyond wonderful - airport transport and laundry were great for logistical reasons, but the elephant encounter, canopy zip line, sunset at the gorge (x2) and tour of the falls were all so amazing. We can’t say enough positive things about this place. It was a once in a lifetime experience that we hope to repeat someday. If you’re on the fence, you must do it, and you won’t regret it for a second.

We were originally supposed to stay at the Elephant Camp but it was under renovations so we were moved to the Old Drift Lodge - so this is really a review for that amazing property! It was 5 star from the moment we arrived. The entire staff, from our guide Khule to the wait and cleaning staff, all went above and beyond to make this trip the most memorable ever. We didn't have to worry about a thing - food, adventures, safari drives, boat cruises, laundry - all included. We will be back!

Unbelievable experience and truly amazing staff!!
I cannot say enough about the amazing experience we had here. Not only were the property and room incredibly beautiful, but the staff really made the trip perfect. From the moment we arrived, we were treated as personal guests and had a dedicated activity partner who helped plan our days from sunup to sundown and keep us on schedule, and personal guides for our activities that were friendly and knowledgeable. We did not have to worry about a thing. The variety of activities that were offered (most included with the rate) were awesome and we were non-stop all day. Our only regret was not staying longer, since we were so busy that we had little time to truly enjoy the beautiful and romantic tented suite. 2 nights is NOT enough here!! We will be back!
