We stayed 3 nights at The Hide in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe, at the end of November, 2016. This was absolutely amazing: the hospitality of the hosts is touching and our guide Nicholas was fantastic! He even tracked a cheetah for us, basically guessing where it would go, and we sat there couple meters away, watching it debating with itself...

Everything about the Hide in Zimbabwe was perfect. We had five fantastic days, three game drives a day with Daffy who could spot an animal far in the distance. Loads to see, some of which were very close, but we felt safe with Daffy in charge. Food, staff, accommodation and climate could not have been better, we would certainly recommend...

Wow! On arrival we realised what a brilliant stay this was going to be. The staff were warm and friendly and nothing was too difficult for them to organise. The accommodation and view from our room was incredible and the kids had great fun at night dodging the Kamikaze Dung Beetles! Much squealing from my eldest... Food was always excellent...

We, (14 of us, including children) stayed in The Hide over Christmas and had the most wonderful time. We saw an incredible amount of wild animals and were mostly the only vehicle to witness such amazing sights as a mother cheetah and her 4 grown cubs hunt and kill and impala a few meters from our vehicle. On the same...

Everything that we expected and more! Such welcoming and helpful staff. Delicious food and spacious "tented" accommodation. The game drives were great and our guide, Nkosi, was excellent. The whole experience exceeded our expectations and we would recommend it in a heartbeat!! Thank you everyone at The Hide ... what an amazing trip.

We were wary of travelling to Zimbabwe, but as we'd left it fairly late to book a safari more likely choices such as in Botswana and Tanzania were already fully booked. We are so glad we came! Firstly, because tourists are wary, your tourist dollar is very welcome, and much needed in the country. People keep their jobs if we...

The Hide was an amazing experience. Michael the chef is a master - everything we ate was delicious. Watching zebras, impalas, water buffalo and warthogs graze just meters from our private tent was something we will never forget. We also spent a night in the Doves Nest - highly recommend it!

I could not have asked for a better birthday trip than a visit to The Hide. After a very long car ride from Harare, we were almost immediately greeted by a fantastic variety of wildlife (including a curious giraffe, some friendly zebras, a family of warthogs, and an enormous bunch of baboons) and we hadn't even reached the camp yet!...

Stayed at the hide for three nights in December - what a fantastic experience. The staff were all incredibly friendly. The food was delicious. The accommodation was fantastic - comfortable beds; free from insect-life; lovely hot showers (both indoor and outdoor!); and incredible views of the water-hole from our own personal veranda. We were lucky during our stay with some...

If you have never been to Africa or seen an animal in the wild then of course you are going to have a wonderful experience on safari. What separates The Hide from others is their attention to detail: the amazingly knowledgable guides, the location and unparalleled access to animals (around 30 elephants came up to the watering hole within minutes...
