Rovos Rail to the Hide
The exciting news is Rovos Rail have begun stopping at The Hide every two weeks on both their North Bound and South Bound journeys between Pretoria and Victoria Falls. The stops allow guests to enjoy an excursion into Hwange National Park for a few hours. Up to now the game drives have proven very productive with lion, buffalo, elephant amongst many other mammal and bird species being sighted.

Hides at the Hide
The new underground Hide, which is accessed by a 25 meter underground tunnel, is proving to be extremely popular with guests. Many guests are opting to remain in camp and view wildlife up close from the underground hides around our waterhole.
With the dry season now in full swing, the waterholes are havens for wildlife sightings.

Tom’s Little Hide has significantly gained popularity and by all accounts guests are loving the exclusive experience that Tom’s provides. The Private Hide has seen it’s first sets of guests staying in it, who have been thrilled with the latest exclusive offering at The Hide.

The Hide Get’s a bit of Pampering
The Hide’s soft refurb is now complete. The vibrant décor and colours have brought about a fresh spark to all the the tents. We have further ideas and plans so watch this space.

We are delighted to have Leanne as an addition to the already superb team in camp.
