Why we like it

  • Located in the Hwange National Park and surrounded by a private concession allows The Hide Safari Camp to offer a mix of activities from early morning drives to night drives, and guided walks
  • There is a hide located by the only source of permanent water in the area, animal sightings can be exceptional from here
  • Phenomenal game viewing opportunities great herds of elephant and buffalo and an excellent place to spot wild dog, lion, leopard and rhino
  • A small plunge pool to cool off in the middle of the day
  • Children welcome over 10 years old, younger children can stay at the camp but the camp has to be taken out on an exclusive basis

A&K Top Tip

Enjoy a private dinner and spend the night in the Doves Nest. The Doves Nest is a tree house overlooking the tree-lined vlei and offers a perfect vantage point to view wildlife safely.

Guest Testimonial

Just a short note to thank you for all your efforts in putting together our itinerary for our honeymoon. We had the most utterly fantastic time and we were impressed time and again by the A&K service; all of the transfers happened perfectly and we were looked after from the minute our journey began. We also got a sense that we were staying in places that we would not have found had it not been booked through you. In par
