Close-Up Wildlife Encounters at the Hide, Hwange

The Hide Safari Camp The Hide Safari Camp

The best way to view wildlife is up close. And there is no better way of doing this than inside a safari hide. Hides are very much a safari tradition. These hidden dens allow you to view the wild game from up close without disturbing their peace.

As the camp’s name implies, The Hide in the Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe, has the best safari hides in Africa. In addition to a popular wildlife watering hole hide, the camp’s new underground hide offers an intimate viewing experience right on your doorstep. Slide into an underground tunnel directly from your deck and emerge before your very own ‘window onto the waterhole’ where you can watch the wild world go by.

Take a trip back to a bygone era and experience a grand safari in the 21st century. Relax in your classic Cottars 1920’s Camp’s marquee tent, equipped with antique furnishings, and watch the sun set below the distant horizons of the Masai Mara and Serengeti grasslands. View wildlife ranging from petite antelope to bulky buffalo wander across the plains.

After a game drive, feel welcomed back to the camp with a safari bath set up in the savannah under the African sky. Slide into your vintage bathtub and let your senses heighten to absorb every little piece of Africa.

A day spent up in a tree house is an excitingly unique experience. Set amongst the thick branches of an old Ebony tree, the Tongabezi Safari Lodge’s tree house spreads over a large pine deck. This intimate, romantic retreat offers a platform to relax and de-stress on whilst listening to the serene sounds of the wild, wonderful Zambia around you.

With the majestic Zambezi River running right below the tree house with all its force, you can experience the magical charm of Africa without setting foot outside.
