My wife and I stayed at the Hide in mid-February 2017 and were graciously hosted. We appreciated the level of attention to detail in the infrastructure as well as good conversation from our hosts. This was complemented by our guide on the drives and the game walk. Truly the Hide is a special place in Hwange and I would highly...

We really did see our money's worth in a full days game drive with a picnic lunch at Kennedy no.1 picnic spot. Our driver was a very good spotter and knew birds as well as animals. We really enjoy the day.

What a place. Cannot fault it. Staff superb, perfect position next to a watering hole, superbly knowledgeable guides, great food, rooms spot on (glamping to the max). Even though we visited in the rainy season when the animals were dispersed over the park our guide managed to track down (literally) virtually all the animals you would want to tick off...

We celebrated my mothers' 80th birthday and Christmas day with a family reunion at The Hide, and what a fantastic place.
