Your experience begins with a jet boat cruise upriver from the Victoria Falls, spotting wildlife en route. But it is when you step out of the boat into the elephant sanctuary that the magic really begins. Greeted by elephants of all ages, you have the opportunity to stroke, feed and pose for photos with them. /
You are then invited onto a deck suspended over the Zambezi River with vistas across the river where you will sip on a champagne cocktail before sitting to a table laid with crisp-white linen tablecloths, sparkling glasses and silverware ready for delicious bush gourmet cuisine, unique to the Elephant Café.
This exclusive and award winning restaurant only uses wild and locally sourced fresh ingredients.
