About The Hide
The Hide offers an incredible safari experience for its guests, from its fantastic game viewing from the comfort of the lodge, to a variety of daily activities to suit everyone and the warm and welcoming staff, who make you feel like family from the minute you arrive. Guests are accommodated in 10 beautifully-furnished deluxe tents, all have en-suite bathrooms and private verandas overlooking the busy waterhole, with outdoor showers. Keep your binoculars on hand, as elephant, lion and buffalo can often be seen satisfying their thirst in the pan in front of the camp. After an exhilarating day of game viewing, guests can retreat to the cool refuge of the campâs swimming pool and can enjoy delectable meals savoured al fresco or in the elegant dining room.
The hide is located in a prime position in Hwange National Park, overlooking a pan where game comes to drinks all day and night. The camp is close to the elephant express, the longest straight railway in the world. This train is perfect for a game viewing experience like no other.
How to get there
The flight time between London and Johannesburg in 11 hours. Upon arrival you will take a 90-minute flight to Victoria falls. From Victoria falls you will then transfer to the park. At the entrance to the park you will be met by your guide who will take you on a game drive to the camp.
When to go
From the middle of May through to the start of August the days are warm and dry however, the night time temperatures can drop below freezing. September through to May is generally hot in the day and warm at night, Hwange sees rain from late November to April.
The best time for game viewing is from August to early November. This is because water is scares, the bush has died back and game congregates around the pumped waterholes. Birdlife is at its best during the raining season, and although the game has dispersed due to readily available surface water, this is still a great time to experience Hwange as the National Park hums with life.
