The Hide Safari Camp is located in a place that seems to have far more than its fair share of natural beauty. In a private concession but within Hwange National Park on the eastern boundary, The Hide offers an incredible diversity of wildlife and scenery.
Wake up to the first calls of robins and hornbills as the dawn light creeps in, enjoy a cup of freshly delivered coffee on your veranda and watch elephants, kudu, giraffe and zebra come down to the mist-edged waterhole. At the end of the day, soak in a soothing hot bath as the buffalo stroll silently by or enjoy an energising outdoor shower under the stars.

  1. The Perfect Hide

    Very friendly and competent hospitality, amazing game viewing, bush guiding at its best, comfortable tents with a close view to the wildlife, The Hide is definitely a place to remember.
    This traditional safari lodge offers above average guiding with some very spectacular wild life sightings. Extremely competent management and very attentive service.
    Food is simple but excellent and the lounge aerea with direct and close view on a water hole is just awesome. A forty meters tunnel leads to a hide where you are literally sitting with the elephants and other animals. The Hide also offers the possibility to spend a night in a treehouse in the middle of the bush. The experience is worth the trip.
    Definitely one of the best safari camp of Africa.

  2. Absolutely magnificent!

    My husband and I spent 3 nights at The Hide and it was absolutely wonderful. Our deluxe tent was in front of the waterhole and it was amazing to watch the elephants drink up at night. On many occasions we also heard lions calling nearby. The food is wonderful and so is the service. Our guide Givemore was very knowledgeable and was in no rush, so we had the opportunity to enjoy the game drives and take many incredible pictures of the lovely sightings. We definitely look forward to visiting this amazing place again.

  3. Incredible Safari

    Our Zimbabwean family (with friends from New York who had never visited Africa) have just experienced the most amazing 3 days at The Hide in Hwange. Each day was an absolute delight of game viewing (of all large and small creatures) delectable meals (on safari and at the Hide) and very comfortable and attractive accommodation. The guides, Daffy and Innocent, were remarkable with their knowledge of the bush. They went out of their way to make sure we never missed a single sighting (wild dog running alongside our safari truck was one of the highlights of our trip not to mention lion very close to camp and elephant walking through the camp each evening!) The Hide must surely rate as one of the best (if not the best) safari camp in Africa.
