The Hide Lodge

Renowned for its excellent game activities, outstanding guiding and hospitality, The Hide is dedicated to delivering among the finest safari experiences in Africa. The two concealed ‘Hides’ located on either side of the main waterhole affords a haven for remarkably close encounters and incredible photographs of elephants, buffalo and other wildlife species.

The Hide offers a life-enriching safari experience for its guests, from its fantastic game viewing right on your doorstep to a variety of daily activities to suit everyone and the warm and welcoming staff, who make you feel like family from the minute you arrive.

Its 10 beautifully deluxe tents are furnished East African-style all boasting en-suite bathrooms and private verandas overlooking the busy waterhole. Keep your binoculars on hand, as elephants, lions and buffalo can often be seen satisfying their thirst. All suites overlook a busy waterhole affording guests the pleasure of rewarding game-viewing without leaving their rooms.

Adventures include day and night game drives, guided bush walks and exceptional game viewing in the seclusion of the camp’s unique underground hides. For those who are a little more adventurous, The Dove’s Nest Treehouse is available at no extra charge. Located 10 minutes away from camp, this rustic gem sleepout has the perfect vantage point from which to view wildlife safely, and quietly.

Deluxe Tent

The Hide sleeps up to 20 guests in ten comfortable and spacious deluxe, family deluxe and honeymoon deluxe tents. 

The tents have a myriad of different configurations with indoor and/or outdoor bathtubs and showers. They are fan-cooled for your comfort in summer and have extra warm blankets and hot water bottles for the cool winter months. Each has a private veranda from where guests may be entertained by the comings and goings of a large variety of game at the waterhole. One tent is wheelchair friendly.

The bedrooms are linked by a dining room and outside veranda, complete with a sparkling swimming pool.

The Dove’s Nest

Our little secret, the Dove’s Nest, is just about the best way to get away from it all. There are few things more exciting than spending a night out in a tree house. 

Overlooking the open tree-lined vlei and pan where giraffes and elephants commonly come to drink, this rustic gem is a perfect vantage point from which to view wildlife safely and quietly. Just the two of you. Kept simple, as a tree-house should be, the bedroom of the Dove’s Nest is reached by a wooden stairway and trap door. You won’t have to forego your hot shower and warm bed and the location is second to none.
