The Dove’s Nest

The Doves Nest provides you with a romantic African fairytale setting, where you can sleep out in the vast openness of the wild and immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the bush that surround you. There is something quite special about the wide expanse of the African sky and with just the stars, moon and occasional call from the wild, to keep you company, you are in for a treat for your sleep out at The Hide.

The Hide’s secret getaway, The Dove’s Nest, is located just 10 minutes away from the main lodge and provides the perfect elevated space from which to survey your very own private kingdom. Overlooking the open tree-lined vlei and pan where giraffe and elephants come down to drink, this platform offers the perfect vantage point to view wildlife from.

After enjoying dinner at The Hide, a guide will take you on a night drive to The Dove’s Nest, where on arrival you will given a safety briefing, supplied with a radio for your peace of mind and left to enjoy your beautiful private retreat for the night.

The Dove’s Nest is built to accommodate two people and the spacious and comfortable bedroom is reached by a wooden stairway which has a closeable door and is protected by large canvas gauze windows. Your guide will arrive in the early morning and drive you back to camp for breakfast where we look forward to hearing about your adventurous night in the bush.
