The Hide is a small lodge, well positioned within a north-eastern annex of Hwange National Park. Independent and owner run, it benefits from both a popular waterhole in camp and very high game densities nearby. Expert Africa has been sending travellers here since the mid-1990s – and the lodge has managed to ride out the last decade’s political and financial turbulence in Zimbabwe. Now, following recent investment, this old favourite has been given a new lease of life.

Our view of The Hide

Zimbabwe has been through some tough times in recent years, but The Hide is now in fantastic shape, with substantial upgrades completed and large, new, well-appointed tents. Caring owners, friendly staff and knowledgeable guides add to an overall experience that’s usually excellent – helped by the camp’s location, which makes activities slightly more flexible than those from camps within the park. The Hide has fairly consistently been one of Zimbabwe’s best safari camps over the last 15 years or so; far from resting on its laurels, it’s clearly working hard to remain on top; we’re impressed.
