We celebrated my mothers' 80th birthday and Christmas day with a family reunion at The Hide, and what a fantastic place. The staff were brilliant and made the task of catering for a wide range of ages from grandchildren to grandparents look easy. The guides, Nicholas and Nkosi, did an absolutely fantastic job at keeping children with short attention spans...

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...

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.
