Build in 1992 in a private concession on the Eastern boundary of Hwange National Park with stunning views across a natural waterhole.
The Hide has earned itself a reputation as a consummate safari destination for both exceptional wildlife experience and hospitality it offers.
Hwange was once a Royal hunting ground of the Ndebele Kings and has long been known for its abundance of wildlife particularly Elephant, Buffalo. It is also one of the best places to see lion, leopards and African wild dogs.
A perfect place for a group friends or family wanting a private break. Tom’s Little Hide is a beautiful authentic safari house 5 km from the Hide.

Dove’s Nest is the little secret where you are away from it all. Overlooking the open tree-lined vlei and pan where giraffe and elephants commonly roam and come to drink. This is a experience for 2 guests. The bedroom of the Dove’s Nest is reached by a wooden stairway and with a closeable door. You will not have to forego your hot shower and warm bed and the location is second to none.
As you lie on your bed you can watch the birds hopping about in the canopy of your tree through the wood slatted windows. Laze on the swinging hammock as animals wonder by. Have a sundowner watching the glowing sunset before your exclusive private bush dinner before heading of to bed. Admittedly it is not for the faint hearted. However the experience will be a memorable night out.
