The Hide review
This is a special place to stay and they have created the perfect blend of luxury and comfort while remaining very relaxed. The location and the buildings have been sensitively designed to blend in with the landscape and it was just the perfect place to begin our first and hopefully not last safari.
All the staff are genuinely helpful and friendly and you are made to feel at home. The big family room was just right for us and we could watch the animals walk pass our veranda on their way to drink from the pan. The food was excellent and we really enjoyed eating around the large communal table for meals. There is a lovely fire to sit around at night before and after dinner and this is where you get the opportunity to swap stories and talk more to other guests and your guides about their work and life in Zimbabwe. The hot water bottles in our bed each night were a lovely cosy touch.
The guides at the Hide are all incredibly knowledgeable and committed with a real passion for their work. We saw lion, elephant , giraffe, Zebra, wlldebeest, lesser Bushbaby and more and learn't so much about not just the animals but beautiful birds too. We went somewhere different every day and went out with different guides so that we had a real variety of experience.
The highlight of our stay was seeing a Cheetah up close from our jeep - a very cool and handsome creature.
