The Hide Safari Camp

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

The Hide Safari Camp - Thumbnail

Amenities & Facilities

Game viewing Restaurant Rooms Swimming Pool

The Hide Safari Camp is the product of our passion for nature in general, and Hwange National Park in particular.

The Hide Safari Camp has earned its reputation as a consummate safari destination, for both the exceptional wildlife experience and the hospitality it offers.
As our guest, you will stay in one of just ten beautiful tented suites with views over the waterhole, where animals congregate day and night. Between game drives and walks in the National Park, there is plenty of time to relax in a comfortable lounge or sit quietly in a hide to watch the wildlife. After meals all together around a giant table or al fresco under the Acacia trees, you can spend a lazy afternoon by the plunge pool or in the shade of your verandah.

The Hide Safari Camp is fortunate to have the best of both worlds. While located within the Hwange National Park, it is also surrounded by a private concession which allows us to offer activities not otherwise permitted. Hwange is a vast playground worth exploring so you dont have to worry about being bored. Early morning walks are there for the thrill of encountering wildlife on its own terms and exploring the little surprises of the bush.

The Hides luxury tented suites are uniquely styled along classic lines with a contemporary twist, all are spacious and bathed in natural light. Life in the bush is not just about searching for big game. It is just as much about waking to the chorus of robins and hornbills as the rosy dawn light creeps across the bedspread. It is about sitting quietly on the verandah to watch the comings and goings of kudu, giraffe, elephant and many more at the waterhole. And, of course, at the end of a full day, there is that long soak in a hot bath under the stars and the warm bed where you will curl up and listen to the sounds of the African night.

The Doves Nest, is just about the best way to get away from it all. There are few things more exciting than spending a night out in a tree-house. Overlooking the open tree-lined vlei and pan where giraffe and elephants commonly come to drink, this rustic gem is a perfect vantage point from which to view wildlife safely, quietly. Just the two of you. Kept simple, as a tree-house should be, the bedroom of the Doves Nest is reached by a wooden stairway and trap door. You wont have to forego your hot shower and warm bed and the location is second to none.

Lying on the bright bedspread, you can watch the birds hopping about in the canopy of your tree through the wood-slatted windows. Lunch and afternoon siestas on the open deck just below, swinging lazily in the hammock as animals wonder by. Imagine the glowing sunsets, night-sounds and starry skies out here. Sundowners on the deck followed by a private bush dinner and a night spent out in the Doves Nest in one of Africas best wildlife areas. Admittedly not for the faint-hearted, we are pretty confident that this will be a memorable night out.

Room Types:

* THE HIDE - 6 Deluxe Tents, 2 Deluxe Honeymoon Tents, 2 Deluxe Family Tents all canvas under thatch.
