We were pretty happy with the animal sightings in the evening. We arrived at 3 pm, set up our camp on the platform and from 4 pm animals came to the waterholes, a small herd of gnus and zebras, 3 giraffes and and a bigger family of baboons. After dark a bigger herd of buffaloes came and in the night we saw a lone elephant. It was a real experience to have a viewing platform all for yourself. 23$ pp for camping, 10 $ pp park entry and 10 $ per vehicle. We booked the platform at the national parks head office in Vic Falls, otherwise surely at Main Camp. Run down toilets and running water (pretty toilets), but wasn’t keen to use the shower. The platform is approx. 2 x 8 meters. We could not fit our tent, but used the mattresses etc. under a mosquito net, which is not really needed. In the morning it was pretty cold (approx. 12 degrees) with a cold wind (end of April), make sure you have enough blankets etc.
