One of the highlights of our trip was our stay at Elephant Valley Lodge. The tents were clean, comfortable with tea/coffee making facilities. Power points are 3 pin UK style and Wi-Fi was available (best in the dinning/bar area). The safaris from here to Chobe...More
I enjoyed the tent structure but I didn't enjoy the bathroom to be honest as I shared with a friend not a partner but the safari organised from here was the best we did. I loved waking up and hearing the animals at night without...More
I had an amazing stay at Elephant Valley Lodge. The staff and service was exceptional! The highlight of my stay was the game viewing. There is a water hole located in front of the lodge which is lit for night time viewing. We had over...More
We spent two nights here at the start of our Botswana safari. The waterhole makes this place as something is visiting nearly all the time. Most of the tents have a view of this but so does the dining room. The staff are very attentive,...More
While I didn't find the staff to be very warm and welcoming, this was a charming lodge. It has a wonderful viewing spot of a watering hole, which made for some great game viewing from the comfort of a chair. There is a small swimming...More

Good day. The past month of November has been great. It is a hot month still but as it is the start of the rainy season, it has cooled down a bit. I personally love November as everything comes to life after the dry season.

Hi there, I recommend SAA from Joburg to VicFalls; Zimbabwe-visa has gone cheaper and now costs 30 USD (cash!) instead of 50. Don't let others tell you the falls are in Zambia, as the best view (and the park to walk... More
Hi there, I recommend SAA from Joburg to VicFalls; Zimbabwe-visa has gone cheaper and now costs 30 USD (cash!) instead of 50. Don't let others tell you the falls are in Zambia, as the best view (and the park to walk alongside it) is and always was in Zim for sure. My recommendation: do not miss "High Tea" in the Victoria Falls Hotel (USD 15) - an absolute must - apart from experiencing the friendly Zimbabwean service you will also see the bridge and the spray of the falls while dining on cucumber sandwiches. Camp sites in Zim are clean and generally safe. The people are extremely friendly and will be grateful you visit their negative-news-ridden country. Have fun!

We found that if you leave a tip at the reception, this will be split between all the staff at the lodge, which is great for people working behind the scenes. If you want to tip an individual guide who has taken you on a game drive/boat cruise then give them the tip directly. Tip amount is entirely up to you, but we gave our guides between $5-$10 per trip
