Hwange National Park

Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s biggest reserve, home to a profusion of wildlife, including giraffe, lion, zebra and approximately 40 000 elephants. It provides sanctuary for all the country’s endangered species, including a population of wild dogs thought to be among the most sizeable surviving groups on the continent. Terrain ranges from desert dunes and savannah lands to rocky outcrops and sparse forests, and visitors have the choice of game drives, guided walks or horseback safaris as a means of experiencing the park and its creatures.

  • The Dove’s Nest Tree-house

Guided Walks

Morning and afternoon guided walks are offered at The Hide Safari Camp.

The Hide Safari Camp is fortunate to have the best of both worlds. While located within the Hwange National Park, it is also surrounded by a private concession which allows us to offer activities not otherwise permitted. Hwange is a vast playground worth exploring so you don’t have to worry about being bored. Early morning walks are there for the thrill of encountering wildlife on its own terms and exploring the little surprises of the bush.

Day and Night Game Drives

Morning and afternoon game drives as well as night drives with a spotlight are offered at The Hide Safari Camp.

Days can be spent further afield on game drives in search of predators and prey alike. We like to do things properly so sundowners are an important part of the experience.  Enjoy the natural beauty with a cold drink in hand. The guides at The Hide are very much part of the family and have been with us for many years. They have undergone some of the most rigorous training in Africa and their passion for and knowledge of the bush is often what makes a safari so special.

The Underground Hide and Wine Cellar

You’re sitting on the deck at The Hide ‘A’ frame. The sun has just set, its residual warmth a soft tinge of pink in the sky. Just then, a family of elephants strolls into the scene and up to the waterhole. You watch, fascinated by their interactions. Now, here’s where you jump into action. Without the need for a guide or host, you can go directly from the deck into the underground hide and observe the elephant family from up-close. Just step off the deck and slip down the steps into a whole new world. Along a tunnel, you’ll walk for about 10 metres under the surface of the earth – and then emerge into a “window on the waterhole”, where you can sit quietly, the unobserved observing. It’s a special new addition and makes the experience of “game viewing” more intense and personal.

Along the same tunnel, guests are delighted to find, hidden away in the wall, a real wine cellar. Perfectly cooled at a steady 17° degrees Celsius, ambient-lit and stocked with a small selection of fine wines from around the world, this is a welcome addition to an already all-sensory experience at The Hide. Guests are invited to choose the wine they’d like with dinner – or suggestions are made based on wine pairing experts’ recommendations.

The Dove’s Nest Tree house

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, this rustic gem is a perfect vantage point from which to view wildlife safely, 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 with a closable door. You won’t have to forego your hot shower and warm bed and the location is second to none.

Overnight: The Hide

Well known and much loved, situated within Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe’s largest game reserve. The Hide accommodates up to 20 guests in well appointed deluxe tents, overlooking the productive waterhole. En-suite facilities include indoor or outdoor showers and bath tubs. The Private Hide includes a private dining, lounge and plunge pool. Utilizing The Hide tents 6 & 7 creates the perfect exclusive use of a mini safari camp for up to 6-8 guests. Tom’s Little Hide, is perfect for exclusive or family safaris. Accommodating up to 6 adults in 3 beautiful en-suite safari rooms. Includes private dining room, lounge and plunge pool, children of any age are welcome. Up to 4 game activities per day, bush walks, day and night drives, hide visits that include our new underground tunnel from hide to hide. Enjoy a memorable ‘sleep-out’ in the romantic Dove’s Nest.

Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)

One of the original natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls is a World Heritage Site and an extremely popular tourism attraction. Known locally as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’ this spectacle is accessible from both Zambia and Zimbabwe and it is an ideal place to combine a game viewing and water sports. There is excellent fishing, a terrifying bungee jump and arguably the best commercial white water rafting in the world.

Guided Visit to the Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)

Africa has an air of romance that sets her apart from anywhere else in the world. However, it is upon stepping into the Victoria Falls rainforest that guests are truly swept off their feet. There is no finer ambience than the gentle roar of the waterfall. The trees grow so closely together that their branches entwine, and their soft, wet drip across the stone path that weaves through this natural wonder. Submerge yourself in the fragrance of the fauna and the playful fauna in this enchanting and awe-inspiring space. A guided tour is included in the nightly rate, excluding park fees. Satisfy your wanderlust by visiting the more beautiful of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Walking Safaris – Nature & Birding Walks

The concession appears like a flame lily in a bouquet of roses- unique, intriguing, captivating, and drenched in natural beauty. Over 420 bird species flock to this bush paradise, nesting in the trees, drawing stencils across the sky, and flitting around the streams to create an aura of opulence that beckons keen ‘twitchers’. The experienced eye of your accompanying guide will show you the clever weavers west-side nests, the tawny brown Falcons perched between Baobab branches, and the scarlet feathers of the lilac breasted rollers that dance among the leaves. Zebra, impala, sable, wildebeest, kudu and warthogs have also made the concession their home, and curiously survey you as a guest exploring their world.

Lunch at Lookout Cafe

Embark on a trip to the one-of-a-kind Lookout Café, perched 120m above the turbulent rapids of the Zambezi River. This all-inclusive activity is set against the backdrop of the iconic Victoria Falls Bridge, which hangs over the spectacular chasm of the Batoka Gorge. During the rainy season, wisps of the spray from the rainforest curl around the edge of the rock face near the bridge. Creative cocktails and other beverages are included in the activity. From the vantage point of the café, guests can watch the bright rafts plummet through the rapids below, or adrenalin lovers soaring through the air on one of the exciting high wire activities.

Cocktails & Canapés at the Batoka Gorge

In between the lips of the cavernous Batoka gorge, rages the Zambezi River. Indulge in a selection of cocktails and canapés while nestled on the edge of a steep rock face that is hugged by trees and shrubs and blanketed by an endlessly wide sky. When the wind plays with your hair, the setting sun kisses your skin, and the birdsong floats down from the tree branches, you will realise that this is one of the most perfect positions on the planet. The Batoka Gorge is more than a deep fissure in the Earth.

It symbolises decades of Mother Nature’s hard work, chiselling an icon onto her surface. It is evidence of the earth’s immense age. It is a humbling sight that will engulf you and fill you with a sense of appreciations and contentment. This incredible spectacle is just a short drive away from the camp and is the ideal location for relaxation and reflection. With a sight so lovely, it is impossible not to leave with exquisite photographs, which will be developed into small hard copies of the wonderful memories you have made. A selection of wine, refreshing beverages and delectable canapes await guests in this secluded and serene spot.

A Village Tour

There is an African proverb that tells us that “Wisdom is like fire. People take it from others”.  By visiting a local rural village and interacting with the people who live there, you not only forge new friendships, you will also discover a different lifestyle, a new way of doing things, and a broader perspective of life without modern luxuries. Africa is rich in culture, and by immersing yourself in another culture, you foster an understanding of it. We travel to learn, to broaden our perspectives, and to gain a deeper appreciation of the diversity of the world we live in. This is a wonderful experience for all, but especially beneficial for children, because, as the Moroccan proverb reminds us, “Instruction in youth is like engraving in stone”. You will fill your suitcase with souvenirs and your camera with photographs, but for an authentic and rewarding African adventure, you should fill your mind with knowledge.

Victoria Falls Canopy Tour

The black basalt of the Batoka gorge stretches 100 meters skywards and is enrobed in thick vegetation, creating an idyllic space for zip lines to whizz through and unveil a stunning perspective of this breath-taking natural setting. Embark on a two-hour eco-adventure lead by two professional guides across nine unique slides. The adventure unfolds from the Lookout Café, perched above the cove that forms at the first bend of the river below the waterfall. This is where your senses awaken to the excitement to come as the overwhelming view of this cavernous gorge rises to greet you. The turbulent rapids rage below, their steady roar climbing up the canyon creating an ambience of adventure. The awe-inspiring fauna and flora that sprouts across the lips of the gorge entice Trumpeter Hornbills, Schalow’s Turaco, Peregrine Falcons- and if you are extremely lucky, the rare Taita Falcon.

The gentle nature and moderate speed of the slides entices those who want to experience an adrenaline rush minus the scare factor. This is the activity where tranquility meets titillation and can be enjoyed by nature lovers, families, thrill seekers and corporate team building groups. The canopy tour can even be appreciated by those who get sweaty palms and a tingle in their toes just thinking about heights, as the slides traverse over a thick tangle of trees and vegetation.

Visiting the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust

Guests visit the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust (VFTW), a non – profit whose mission is to advance environmental conservation through hands – on wildlife research, the management of a veterinary laboratory and rehabilitation facility and the education of local peoples in the sustainable usage of natural resources.

Included Activity – this activity is included in our rates but must be scheduled with management on arrival and is subject to availability.

Chobe River Front

The Chobe River forms the northern boundary of the Chobe National Park, renowned for its reliable and diverse game viewing. Safaris are conducted both by boat and on land. This section of the park is best known for its elephant and hippo populations but the waters attract all manner of game including large herds of buffalo and the lions that prey on them.


  • Chobe Game Lodge Game Drives
  • Chobe Game Lodge Birding Experience
  • Chobe Game Lodge River Safaris

Chobe Game Lodge Game Drives

Owing to the location of Chobe Game Lodge inside the Chobe National Park, early-morning game drives set off as soon as the park opens, giving you the best chance of tracking predators while they are still active. The afternoon drives depart the lodge in the late afternoon (the exact time is dependent on the season), only returning at park closure time after sunset, thus maximising the time you spend out in the park to enjoy those special sightings.

The drives follow the course of the Chobe River as your experienced guide interprets the bush signs and tracks in search of the resident wildlife. Elephant encounters are common and huge herds of buffalo abound. The ever-present impala and the majestic giraffe are both common residents, while sightings of the puku antelope are also on offer. Predators are plentiful in the northern region of the Chobe National Park, and excellent sightings of lion, wild dog and leopard are to be had.

The Chobe Game Lodge vehicles are open 4WD game viewers redesigned to make your trip comfortable and your viewing experience astonishing. Included in the fleet are several silent, CO2 emission-free electric vehicles designed to further enhance your Chobe safari.

Chobe Game Lodge Birding Experience

Birding is spectacular with Schalows turaco, barred owlet and white-browed coucal resident in the gardens as well as rosythroated longclaw, western – banded snake-eagle and hooded vulture among a few of the 450 species of the Chobe region.

Chobe Game Lodge River Safaris

No Chobe safari is complete without experiencing the beauty of the Chobe River and its incredible wildlife by boat. The riverboats are specifically designed to ensure each passenger can take in the magnificent Chobe views in complete comfort from anywhere on the boat.

Owing to the flexibility in seating arrangements and the flat deck, the boats are ideal for keen wildlife photographers, with ample space for equipment and the freedom to photograph from any angle. Unlike any other water-based activity in Botswana, the game viewing while on a river safari in Chobe is unsurpassed anywhere in Botswana.

Elephants line the water’s edge, hippo congregate in lagoons, hundreds of antelope and giraffe make their way to the water and sightings of predators along the river banks are common.

All of the boats at Chobe Game Lodge are solar electric solar-powered safari boats – a clean and quiet way to enjoy a boat safari and another first for tourism in Africa.
