Hwange is Zimbabwe’s largest National Park and has some of the best wildlife in Southern Africa. With its stunning landscapes, large herds of elephants and spectacular sunsets, this is guaranteed to set the perfect tone for your marriage.
The Hide Safari Camp is in a private concession but within Hwange National Park on the eastern boundary and it has set a bar of excellence and luxury for Hwange National Park accommodation. From outdoor baths overlooking a wildlife-rich waterhole to private hide sits where you can watch some of the Big 5 meanders right past you, this luxury tented camp guarantees a life-enriching safari experience.

There is something thrilling and romantic about staying in a tent on safari where you can soak up the glow of lantern light on canvas walls, drift off to sleep to the sounds of the African night, and feel like you are the only couple in Africa. Honeymooners can enjoy candle-lit dinners in their tent or under starry skies, private game vehicles and guides for all activities, or relax, sundowner in hand, on your private veranda overlooking the waterhole.
