Greeting back to the Hide Thank you Lindsay, Nkosi, Daffy, the chefs and everyone else who made our the Hide getaway the right choice in the green season. We drove up from Harare via Bulawayo on the newly tarred road through many road blocks and speed traps. The lunch and fuel stop in BYO was timed for our late afternoon...

It’s hard to explain what a special place this is. I really did not want to leave and shed a tear on departure. Our stay was really much more than a holiday – an unforgettable experience we will carry with us for the rest of our lives.

This place is home away from home...I had a really wonderful time with my sister Gloria there...I will definitely be coming back in a year or 2. From the time we arrived it was like we were arriving at home that we haven't been to for a long time. The service you get from house keeping to the guides &...

Recently returned from our 20th African trip but our first (but not last!) safari visit to The Hide in Hwange. We both loved The Hide and the managers, Ian and Leanne are tireless workers! I told Leanne that she needed a fitbit to track all of the walking she did every day. They make sure that everything is perfect for...

We happened upon The Hide as a tack on to our visit to Tongabezi in Zambia. Having never heard of The Hide, not to mention the fact that it is in the middle of a national park, we were somewhat anxious and did not know what to expect of the place. Oh what an unspoiled gem! We we first arrived,...

Other reviewers have mentioned the obvious things - loads of game, great food, and friendly and capable staff (particularly the guides) - but the main thing that struck me was the small number of visitors (a maximum of about 20). The Hide isn't cheap, but you pay for exclusivity and this makes for a personal and intimate experience of Hwange...

Returned to the Hide for a second visit and, once again, it was truly memorable and lived up to all our expectations. With an interest in birds, our guide, Nkosi, went out of his way to locate and assist with identification. The whole Hide team made us feel very welcome again. The food and accommodation were, as we experienced on...

The Hide was the last stop for our group of 12. We had already stayed at Muchenje in Kasane and Ilala Lodge in Vic Falls. While we weren't looking forward to the trip ending, we were anxious to get to The Hide because of everything we read. The Hide did NOT disappoint on any level.....it exceeded our expectations on everything!...

We spent four nights at the Hide as part of our honeymoon. We were instantly welcomed and felt right at home. The accommodation is amazing. Glamping style canvas tents but with real doors and indoor shower and toilet. Heaps of space inside - bigger than normal hotel rooms. The highlight of the accommodation was the outdoor shower and bath. We...
