Activities in Victoria Falls
Situated twenty minutes out of town, The Elephant Camp gives guests the opportunity to explore Victoria Falls on their own terms. However, there are a variety of exciting activities that unfold within the boundaries of the untamed African bush for guests to explore at no additional cost.
The Elephant Camp ensures an authentic African adventure.
A Village Tour.
Guests will be transferred to a rural village where they will see local villagers going about their daily tasks and interact with them. The tour enables them to see rural Zimbabwean life first hand.
Lunch at the Lookout Café (Including drinks).
Guests enjoy complimentary transfers and the fully inclusive use of the Lookout Café. Perched 120 metres above the turbulent rapids of the Zambezi River, the café overhangs the spectacular chasm of the Batoka Gorge, just down from the iconic Victoria Falls Bridge, which forms part of its backdrop.
Birding & Nature Walks on the concession.
Let our experienced guides bring to life the beautiful concession the Elephant Camp is situated upon.
Visiting the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust.
Guests visit the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust (VFTW), a non-profit orgnaisation whose mission is to advance environmental conservation through hands-on wildlife research, the management of a veterinary laboratory and rehabilitation facility and the education of local peoples in the sustainable usage of natural resources.
Tour of The Falls (Zimbabwe).
The Victoria Falls reaches Its Zenith in about May each year. It’s a truly awe-inspiring experience – the sight, the sound, the smell; the humbling feeling that here indeed is Nature’s Supreme Masterpiece. No photograph can begin to depict the reality…and nothing prepares you for your first sight. This tour is conducted in the morning and afternoon. Guests will be accompanied through the Rainforest by one of our qualified guides.
The Elephant Encounter will give guests the opportunity to unobtrusively interact with some of the biggest personalities in Africa. Guests will be given an insightful and educational presentation on the sanctuary and the individual elephants, their lifestyle and their future release plans. The sanctuary was founded on the principle of conservation, and one of the most effective ways to evoke a sense of environmental responsibility is to show what stands to be lost. Guests will have an opportunity to talk to elephant keepers that have journeyed, physically and metaphorically, incredible distances with these animals, and learn more about the complexities of the individuals and the herd structures.
Optional Extra Activities
For the guests that are in search of that extra dose of adrenalin, or are looking to reach further corners of this unique place, the town itself is bursting with activities that can be easily arranged at an additional cost by the camp. To find out more, follow the links provided.
