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 Safari Camp is the product of our passion for nature in general, and Hwange National Park in particular. Built in 1992 by the Preston family, who remain deeply involved to this day, The Hide Safari Camp has earned its reputation as a consummate safari destination, for both the exceptional wildlife experience and the hospitality it offers.

As our guest, you'll stay in one of just ten beautiful tented suites with views over the waterhole, where animals congregate day and night. Between game drives and walks in the National Park, there is plenty of time to relax in a comfortable lounge or sit quietly in a hide to watch the wildlife.

After meals all together around a giant table or al fresco under the Acacia trees, you can spend a lazy afternoon by the plunge pool or in the shade of your veranda.

Since The Hide Safari Camp was sited in one of Hwange National Park’s prime wildlife areas nearly twenty years ago, we have distilled the essence of the safari experience and embellished it with our own distinctive style.

Hwange was once the royal hunting ground of Ndebele kings and has long been known for its abundant and diverse wildlife.

In particular, the park is known for herds of elephant and buffalo numbering in the hundreds. This is one of the best places to see lion, leopard and African wild dog among the hundred or so other mammal and four hundred bird species.

We understand that you come to Africa first and foremost to encounter the continents' natural beauty.

At The Hide we are passionate about nature; we have built on our superb location and extensive knowledge of the park with the best expert guides so that you can experience the true wilderness and wildlife Hwange has to offer.

Whether on a drive to one of Hwange’s game-rich pans, on foot within our private concession or sleeping out in the Dove’s Nest, there is never a dull moment.

In fact, the waterhole just metres from The Hide attracts such a variety of life that you may not need to roam far from your veranda to be a part of the action.

As a member of the prestigious "Classic Safari Camps of Africa", The Hide Safari Camps team of professional and friendly staff are dedicated to uphold the finest safari experience we have offered for over a decade.
