The Hide is a relaxed and friendly small lodge which is well positioned within a north-eastern annex of Hwange National Park. It has been around for many years - Expert Africa has been sending travellers here since the mid-1990s - and it has successfully managed to ride out the recent political and financial turbulence in Zimbabwe.
Our view of The Hide
The Hide is well established; it has survived some tough times in recent years with levels of investment perhaps not at what they might have been. That said, this is now (2010) being put in, with substantial upgrades all round – and very large, new, well-appointed tents.
This is a good-quality camp which is clean and well managed, with very spacious new chalets and well-appointed bathrooms. Caring owners, helpful staff and knowledgeable guides add to the overall experience at The Hide and the annexed location of the camp makes night drives more of a feature here than at many other camps in the region. As the name would suggest, a number of well-positioned hides (especially one in close proximity to the busy waterhole) make for an interesting addition to the already jam-packed activity schedule on offer here.
