Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe
Nestled within endless grassy plains and perched a short distance from the only waterhole for miles, The Hide Safari Camp offers incredible wildlife viewings before you even started your game drive. This is one of our favourite places to watch the animals roam in Hwange National Park.
The rustic Private Hide has wonderful 360 degree views of the savannah, with a lovely open-air lounge and dining area. Close-by to the Private Hide is three canvas Hide’s Tents - two of which are family size with one double bed and two singles – and all adopting a simple, authentic safari feel.
Then there’s Tom’s Little Hide, a quaint three bedroom private house perfect for large families or groups. With its own vehicle and guide, your daily itinerary is tailor-made to you – you just need to decide whether you fancy enjoying a game drive or relaxing by the private splash pool.
We love the romantic Dove’s Nest. Found high in the trees and accessed by a wooden staircase, this modern tree house offers spectacular views of the never ending horizon, kept simple with just one double bed and a hammock perfect for lazing on the deck.
Zimbabwe is renowned for its remarkable guides, and it’s certainly no different here. The guides at The Hide have worked at the camp for years, and their friendly nature, gentle humour and love for the bush will radiate as you embark on fun activities with them, or listen to their stories by the campfire. Surrounded by a private concession, there’s plenty of opportunity to see the amazing wildlife, whether that be on foot, by car, or in the hide close by to the waterhole.
