Fabulous Experience!

“Just back from 3 days at The Hide – stayed in Tent 8 which had a great view of the waterhole and right next to main area….one of the days x 4 vultures turned up across the waterhole just chilling out for a few hours as if they had popped to the beach! The tent was fab with all that was needed and the added bonus of an outdoor shower and bath! The food served was delicious. Thanks to our Guide Innocent we managed to see lots of different animals and bird life including a rare sighting of x 3 bat eared foxes!

A highlight was one of the evenings when driving out for sundowners he drove us to a plain filled with palm trees which was quite surreal after driving through woodland and made even more special by a herd of elephants drinking in the waterhole. Stayed one of the nights in the Doves Nest – treehouse; if there is availability this is so worth doing and the most amazing experience; you are given drinks when dropped off for sundowners and then dinner is delivered at 8pm. The night sky looking at the stars is magical. A truly unforgettable African experience. Thanks The Hide!”  March 2020
