Beauty Amplified

The moment you step into the safari vehicle, it hits you. From the impressive knowledge of your guide, delivered so passionately, to the unobtrusive attentions of the camp staff, from exploring on foot the intricate forests to feeling like the small spot you are on the stark, vast horizon of Hwange.

You’ll find that everything is amplified here at The Hide.

The sun stays up longer. The grass stretches for endless miles. The time spent watching the elephants at the waterhole is suspended in slow motion. Flavours, sounds, smells… they all seem enhanced somehow. You recognise it. You hear it in the catch of your breath as a kingfisher hovers over the seemingly still water – until it plummets in a brilliant blur.

Or when you are carried to another world in The Hide’s private concession by night, where moonlit drives are possible and nocturnal sightings exciting. How about when you step off the deck and into a tunnel that takes you to a ‘window on the waterhole’? The Hide’s new hide is a gift of freedom to watch the wonder of it all whenever it takes your fancy.

This is the new, miraculous reality that is your life for the next few days. Because at The Hide Safari Camp, everything becomes brighter, bolder, bigger and more beautiful than you could ever imagine.

I just wanted to say how wonderful The Hide was..Thank You. We both cant stop thinking about it, we will return for sure, when we were leaving it felt like we were saying goodbye to our home and family, we were sad to leave.

If you dont already use The Hide Safari Camp, you really should try the place. It was probably our favorite location.

We've found our next "favourite place". Thank you to you all, you all put in so much effort! Great sighting of two male lions and I've never been so close to a wild elephant in "The Hide" last night – what a treat! Thanks Nkosi, you are a true man of the bush, your insights and local knowledge is so admirable. We'll be back, thanks The Hide.
