The Elephant Café, awarded Zambia’s Best New Restaurant 2016, is a tented exclusive restaurant built on a wooden deck in the Zambezi River, upstream from Victoria Falls in Livingstone, Zambia. Sitting only 24 people, this exclusive Livingstone restaurant is the centre point of a riverside location that has been home to a herd of rescued hand-reared elephants for many years. The Elephant Café is built on a wooden deck in the Zambezi River, a 25-minute boat ride upriver from Victoria Falls. This Victoria Falls restaurant sits in a place that is not only breathtaking, it’s imbued with an energy of interconnectedness and calm. It’s a place that invites in other wild animals like giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, and antelope from the surrounding Mosi-a-Tunya National Park. It’s a place that’s alive with bush-speak, from the throats of the river birds, from luxuriating hippos, from squabbling monkeys and baboons in the canopy overhead. It’s a place that carries the spirit of the elephant.
Day 4 – breakfast, airport transfer to Livingstone airport.
