More about The Hide: Situated on a private concession in the Hwange National Park, The Hide offers a fantastic game-viewing experience where guests can witness lion, leopard, wild dog, elephant, and buffalo. In fact, the area is so celebrated for its wildlife that Ndebele Kings once used the land to hunt.
In addition to its perfect location and excellent game-viewing opportunities, The Hide is also renowned for its staff, who are all super friendly locals who have been with the camp since its early days. This camp has the amazing ability to make you feel like you’re at home. I also love the communal meal setup and how everyone is invited to introduce themselves—it really does make for a true “family” experience! Be sure to prebook the Doves Nest, a sleep-out hide where you can sleep out under the stars and safely observe the animals.
More about Little Makalolo: Also situated in Hwange National Park, Little Makalolo Camp offers a wide variety of activities to help guests take advantage of the brilliant game-viewing opportunities found throughout the park. Some of these activities include game drives, walking safaris, and nighttime game drives where guests will witness everything from mongoose to leopard, baboon to hyena, and waterbuck to lion. The area in which Little Makalolo is located is also famous for birding.
