The Hide Safari Camp is perfectly situated within Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe's largest game reserve.
Guests are accommodated in 10 beautifully-furnished deluxe tents, all boasting en-suite bathrooms and private verandas overlooking the busy waterhole. Keep your binoculars on hand, as elephant, lion and buffalo can often be seen satisfying their thirst.
Adventures include day and night game drives, guided bush walks and exceptional game viewing in the seclusion of the camp’s unique underground hides. For those who are a little more adventurous, The Dove’s Nest Treehouse is available at no extra charge. Located 10 minutes away from camp, this rustic gem sleep out has the perfect vantage point from which to view wildlife safely, quietly.
After an exhilarating day of game viewing, guests can retreat to the cool refuge of the camp’s swimming pool and can enjoy delectable meals savored al fresco or in the elegant dining room.
You may want to consider embroidering its name on your sleeve before you leave because your heart is bound to remain at the Hide.

Our Commitment to Responsible Tourism
We recognise that the need for more conservation and community development programmes to be embedded within the tourism industry, now more than ever, is crucial. Local rural communities are in need of support, not charity, but to be given the chance to be empowered and alleviated from the difficulties that they are faced with. To this end, we have formed the Hide Community Trust – a non-profit organisation, committed to conservation and sustainable community development.
The Hide Community Trust runs alongside The Hide and is partnered with a local community that surrounds Hwange National Park. Our aim is for the relief of poverty, the promotion of education, as well as the benefits of conservation. Our support to these communities will be through Community Capacity Building, social enterprise, education, sustainable development as well as conservation and human-wildlife conflict solutions.

When Tom and Lorraine Preston first stood on the site that would later become one of Zimbabwe’s most awarded safari camps, they looked down across the golden-grassed vlei line and saw a herd of elephants approaching, their heaving shapes dark against the setting sun. Perhaps, one day, Tom thought, those same elephants – and generations more – would make their way towards the natural waterhole just in front of his dream, The Hide Safari Camp. In celebration of 25 years of exc…Read More

The Hide Safari Camp in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe, has added a tunnel to the new underground hide. The camp has also added a private dining and lounge area.

The hide is at a waterhole and allows views of the animals while keeping guests hidden from view, providing excellent photographic opportunities. An underground wine cellar has been added to the tunnel and houses premi…Read More
