The Elephant Camp, Green Season 2018A recent photo shoot at The Elephant Camp inspired us to share the beauty of Green Season with you. We invite you to enjoy the photo journey with us.
A short drive in an air conditioned mini bus transported us from the busy bustling town, to a natural haven where tree tops stroked the clouds, the breeze carried the gentle rustlings of the bush and the atmosphere was both wild yet serene.
I would have been more than happy to sink into the couches on the deck or stretch out on the sun loungers next to the glistening swimming pool, but we decided to go to our chalet to settle in first. When we reached the tented room, I decided that I could very happily spend the rest of the day there.
It is these small, invaluable touches that make Elephant Camp feel like a home away from home just moments after arrival.
A deep set bath tub and shower were in the bathroom, and two fluffy white robes hung there begging to be wrapped around us. However, the outside shower stole the bathrooms attention very quickly.
There is something incredible freeing about showering outside with the cool wind blowing steam into the dark wilderness. A small plunge pool beckoned to us on the private viewing deck, a wonderfully exclusive finishing touch.
When we reached our destination, my breath was swept away. An enormous crevice tears open the earths crust, exposing the raging Zambezi river one hundred meters below. As we crept closer to the edge I felt my legs tingle, but my fear of heights could not stop me inching closer to witness the incredible power of nature so brazenly displayed by this spectacle.
With a glass of Champagne in hand, we hunkered down in the camping chairs and watched the sun slowly sink below the horizon, stars creeping into the pink and orange sky long before it had completed its descent. Once darkness had settled over our group, we returned to camp for a delicious three course dinner.
Everyone was cheerful and happy, but then again, how could you not be smiling in such a magnificent place.
