Hotel Information

The Elephant Hills Resort boasts an 18-hole championship golf course designed by the legendary Gary Player. It is as popular with the wildlife as it is with golfers, as it is not uncommon for play to be interrupted while buck, warthogs or elephants exercise their right to walk on the fairways. Many golfing guests see this as an added bonus and, of course, it makes for great banter over a drink afterwards. Nowhere in the world is there such an experience for golfers as that at the Elephant Hills Resort in Victoria Falls. This environmentally correctly-positioned hilltop hotel, with its great solid structure, is sited by a trail that has seen the passage of countless elephants over thousands of years. It deliberately imposes itself on the surrounding riverine bush. Its tranquil evergreen setting on the upper Zambezi River belies the might of the Victoria Falls just three kilometres away. This majestic hotel, aptly named after the gentle giant of the bush (the elephant) merges seamlessly into its natural environment. Elephant Hills Resort has 276 rooms ranging from the impressive presidential suite to cool and spacious standard rooms. All rooms are ethnically decorated creating a combination of African ambience with comfort and elegance.

Two tennis courts, two squash courts, a swimming pool and a gymnasium are there for those who wish to keep fit and are frequently in use by the many guests attending conferences at the resort. With eight conference rooms, the largest holding up to 500 delegates, Elephant Hills Resort conference staff has their work down to a fine art.

The hotel offers a wide choice of activities ranging from the “Flight of the Angels”, an aerial tour of the Victoria Falls, through the adrenalin rush of bungee jumping from the Victoria Falls Bridge and white-water rafting in the gorges of the mighty Zambezi River, to relaxed, but very different, game viewing from the back of an elephant!

After a morning, or day’s golf or sightseeing, guests have a choice of sustenance from traditional to Western style dishes from the Resort’s Samukele Restaurant, Mapopoma Restaurant or the relaxing and informal Kabisi Terrace Restaurant. The poolside bar is a big favourite during the day or in the evening as the climate is conducive to swimming all year round.
After dinner, chat with new friends in the Mapopoma Bar before curling up for that relaxing sleep only complete satisfaction and contentment can bring. 

The resort's golf course is a showpiece on its own. It's a 18 hole championship graded golf course with a 72 stroke rating. Need some golf clubs or a cart? No problem. The hotel also accommodates a Pro Shop within, with 16 sets of golf clubs and 4 carts to hire. The course blends in with the hotel's natural environment, which will make you feel as if you are on a golfing safari, being surrounded by warthog, impala and other 'visitors' while making that perfect swing.
