The Hide is a Zimbabwe Safari Lodge with a difference, a comfortable, tented safari camp inside the majestic surroundings of the Hwange National Park. Hwange is a haven for wildlife and one of Africa’s premier game parks.
The Hide is an experience that combines the best game viewing in Zimbabwe with a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.
It’s a combination that seems to work - and one that has earned us the vote for “Best Safari Camp in Zimbabwe” more often than any other camp in the country.
In addition to this, our professional guides will take you on a game drive through the national park, where you will come face to face with lions, elephants and giraffes, amongst a host of other game.
The Hide has earned a reputation over the years for its fine cuisine. Meals are a friendly and relaxed affair, with guests and their hosts all sitting down together to chat and eat around a grand teak table.
And there is nothing like a herd of elephant wandering down to drink to make a meal even more memorable.
- No children under 10 years unless in a group taking over the whole lodge or by prior arrangement.
