The Hide is a mid-size camp, located in a small concession within a northeastern annex of Hwange National Park. Independent and owner run, it benefits from both the camp’s popular waterhole and very high game densities in the area. Expert Africa has been sending travellers here since the mid-1990s. After riding out a decade's political and financial turbulence in Zimbabwe, recent investments sees this old favourite remain one of the top accommodation choices in Hwange.
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 continuous small improvements. Caring owners, friendly staff and knowledgeable guides add to an overall experience that's usually excellent – helped by the camp's outstanding location and surrounding private concession. 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.
