We stayed here on leg 3 of our honeymoon and we loved it! The camp is well maintained and the large tent lobby is incredible. The highlight of the trip was feeding the orphaned elephants, what an experience. Also, of course, meeting Sylvester is a special experience! I loved that they always put the wildlife first and you can see...

Initially we were dispapointed to learn we would be in Elephant Camp West..but this is the BEST place if you are with a family or group. This part of Elephant Camp was opened in March 2016 with identical accommodations and only a seven minute walk to the other part of the camp. West has a play/ craft room which is...

The staff was friendly, helpful and always professional. The rooms and lodge was clean and exactly as presented. The camp offers a wide range of activities so there is something for everyone. And they are very helpful in setting up the activities and providing all transportation. We highly recommend!

Had the pleasure of spending two nights at this beautiful retreat. Our hosts Brad and Annie and their staff made our stay an unforgettable experience. The accomodations and meals were outstanding. Visits with Sylvester the cheetah and the elephant encounter enhanced our stay. It's not to be missed.
