The Hide has consistently been voted one of the “Best Tented Safari Camp in Zimbabwe”, and in our view it remains one of the best lodges in Hwange. It is also one of the few lodges actually inside the National Park, with just 10 tents, it’s small and intimate and now beautifully renovated.
Situated on the eastern boundary of Hwange National Park, The Hide is one of the few camps in the park itself. It also benefits from providing walking and night time driving in its private, six square km concession area, which has superb wildlife viewing opportunities, especially during the peak dry season, which is from September to October.
The tents are large under thatch tents, all overlooking the main waterhole. The spacious bedroom areas are each individually furnished with solid Zimbabwe teak furniture, and there are now two fabulous deluxe suites with an extra twin bedded room alongside. There will soon be a spa to complement the pool and teak decking area, a great way to relax after a day’s game viewing.
Meals are served either communally or at private tables, according to your whim, and breakfast is served al fresco, under the wonderful Acacia trees.
