Hwange is home to huge herds of elephant and buffalo and is one of the best places to see lion, leopard and African wild dog. For the last 20 years The Hide Safari Camp has earned a reputation as an exceptional safari destination for both its wildlife experiences and its hospitality. Being located within a private concession surrounded by the Hwange National Park, The Hide can offer activities otherwise not permitted, such as bush walks. Casual game viewing is afforded with a waterhole adjacent to camp. In the surrounding area it is one of the only permanent sources of water and is a huge attraction to wildlife in the area, with daily visitors including elephant, giraffe, zebra, impala, waterbuck and kudu. Lion pass by from time to time and wild dog have even made kills in full view of the camp.
