Hwange National Park - 75 Years of Vintage Africa
“Without doubt, Hwange is one of Africa's premier elephant strongholds. The size of Belgium, it is a vast wilderness and a place of great paradox. Above all else Hwange has elephants…lots and lots of elephants. The eerie silence of a cool crisp winter's night was split asunder by the deafening roars of lion…we settled down to listen to one of Africa's greatest operas. Several males were roaring territorial challenges on the far side of the pan whilst a solitary male made deafening replies close by...this epitomizes the magic of Hwange. The Kalahari woodlands…boast the highest density of giraffe anywhere in Africa and Hwange remains one of the last bastions of the endangered painted hunting dog. The 106 other species of mammals provide an extravaganza of photographic and viewing delights” Nick Greaves (author of “Hwange, Retreat Of The Elephants”), Travel Africa Magazine

Our guides enthusiastically impart their vast knowledge of Africa’s fascinating ecosystem on foot and in open 4x4 vehicles. The revelation of the savannah’s more diminutive creatures is often just as enthralling as encounters with larger wildlife. Night drives on the Hide’s private concession offer a thrilling chance to see leopard and the rarer nocturnal animals.

All ten luxury tents under thatch overlook one of the busiest waterholes in Africa, from where you can enjoy outstanding game viewing from your own veranda. Your classic 'home under canvas' preserves a timeless safari ambience whilst including bathroom en suite and every standard luxury you require. For the more adventurous and romantic, the Dove's Nest offers complete exclusivity for a night alone in the wild.

To the bird watcher, Hwange is a mecca with some 412 species identified to date.

The Hide prides itself in fine cuisine, and meals are enjoyed either alfresco beneath a canopy of camel-thorn acacias overlooking the waterhole, or around our grand teak dining table where we share a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Bush dinners and breakfasts or even private meals on your own verandas are unforgettable occasions.

The Hide is situated in one of Hwange National Park's most outstanding locations, bordering ancient elephant paths and a vast grassland corridor. Herds of elephant, buffalo, and a myriad of others are drawn to the constant waters of the Hide's waterhole, and the spectacle of the great predators making a sudden appearance is not uncommon. As a member of the prestigious “Classic Safari Camps of Africa”, the Hide team of professional and friendly staff are dedicated to uphold the finest safari experience we have bestowed for over a decade. A foremost attraction are the two concealed “hides” located on either side of the Hide's waterhole. These offer a totally secure haven for remarkable close encounters and incredible photographs of elephant and an array of other wildlife.
