The Hide


This exclusive safari lodge combines traditional African style with great wildlife spotting

This cosy retreat sits secluded in a private concession in Hwange National Park. Inviting, luxurious yet understated in style, it’s a gorgeous choice for a traditional safari experience in Zimbabwe. Warm colours and bold patterns blend beautifully with rustic furnishings, and the swimming pool outside is a welcomed escape for the hot summer months. The Hide is exceptionally wildlife-focused. At the camp's entrance there’s a wonderful natural waterhole, and the unique underground hide is something special; described as the camp’s ‘wild window’, the up-close focus on the waterhole means you'll have the chance to see the  wildlife right at eye level.

At The Hide, there’s a real sense of becoming part of the safari family. Staff eat with you around the large teak dining table, and the cushioned campfire outside is the ultimate go-to for pre-dinner mingling with stories and drinks. Wake to fresh tea or coffee delivered to your private veranda in one of the gorgeous rooms dotted around the camp. The classic canvas tents are spacious retreats, with views of the waterhole and an indulgent outdoor bath. Families and smaller groups will enjoy the secluded three-bedroom cottage, while couples can opt for a romantic treehouse – a secluded sleep-out platform just a few minutes from the main camp.
