Time to address the elephant in the room

Elephant Camp, which is a key component of ROAM’s Zambezi Explorer trip, has been ranked the 4th best luxury hotel in Africa.


Making the top 25 list since its inception five years ago, this fantastic private game lodge deserves all the accolades it is getting.  Situated on a private game reserve outside of Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, the camp features 12 deluxe safari tents and some of the region’s finest cuisine.  Home to both natural and rescued big game, guests can spend sunrises walking with Sylvester, a fully-grown Cheetah that still hunts but was never taught how to kill before being abandoned by its mother as a result of a lion attack.

More important than the decadent surroundings, the recent rise to top 4 must be because of the excellent management and wonderful staff that call Elephant Camp home.  The service here is personalized without feeling colonnial and forced as some other 5 Star camps can be.  As  regular visitors here, we will not be surprised when they are justifiably ranked number 1.


The best way to experience Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana is on a circuitous journey.  Our trips are designed so you will experience the best of the natural world while staying in exquisite accommodations perfectly suited to their respective environments.
